I turned off my gas in May. Thought I would have sold my house by now.
Fear of freezing pipes, I called the gas company.
Apparently I owed a balance.
I told them I had forwarded my mail, but never received anything.
“We tracked you down to Bloomington, Illinois”.
I have never lived in Illinois, and isn’t that Indiana?
I Googled my name, and no cross reference to Illinois.
I tried to help the woman later and asked, how did you track me down there?
“We paid a company, and that is what they gave us.”
Could have taken her all of 3 seconds to search me on Google.
I shared that nicely, including the fact we got married and it was on the news.
(Most publicized non-celebrity wedding – but I held back that info…).
She snapped at me:
“That would be your married name. “
I explained that both of our names were listed.
In the end, it turns out she didnt care for my advice, and didnt care her company was paying another company to do shitty work.
Hope she is able to make a better day for herself.
So stalkers unite! Open up a business – I’m sure you can do better than whatever company TW Philips is paying.
