    Just shut off your circuit breaker, or fuse box....

    Then look over, and see if there's still a bunch of lights on ;)

    Theres only one way to find out, set his house on fire and invite some friends over for a VERY entertaining night, even if it turns out just his house burns down.

    I went to court on monday for this, it wasn't my neighbor, It was guess who,


    verizon


    you know that box they install in your basement, they installed a broken one in mine and after alot of hell the electric company told me that If I wanted to I could sue them to get my money back since they were able to prove that the day the service was installed the amount of electricity my house used on a daily basis increased by a factor of nearly 10X, 4,759 dollars in electricity that they owed me and I got every cent back + extra on monday, I am so glad PSE&G came and did their investigation and the man who was a contractor told me that verizon told him to install the broken box since my area never really has power outages. I was able to find out verizon screwed me over.The funny thing however was that PSE&G said that this WAS NOT the first time this has happened.

    I got back 7,900 dollars on monday because the judge was pissed off that verizon would do that. so I am feeling pretty good but still feel kinda screwed because I couldn't go to school this semester because I had to pay my electric bill and I have been going through this shit for nearly 3 months now because of verizon. I will never get verizon again for the rest of my life and will never reccomend it to anyone. I am going to be sitting doing nothing really for 6 months because verizon screwed me, I am so mad but at least I know it wasn't my neighbor I actually gave him 900 dollars since I blamed him and he's happy as hell.

    Still I'm not going to school this semester so I really hate verizon for this. If they would have done anything else except get between me and school I would not care but the bill was so high in the end I just couldn't and its not like you could just not pay your electricity because they will come after you. This is fucking nonsense which could have been easily avoided if they had just had not been such asses and gave people the option to not get that damn box, but they want to be asses and make people pay for everything they can think of, so FUCK YOU VERIZON.

    Awesome.




    And remember the rest of you, all companies really care about is making money. Nothing else. If you like a company you will advertise for them, thus making you a tool, and them MORE MONEY!!!

    Or you can rent a transformer that does 110V ~ 8KV transformation step-up. Turn everything off in your house, run 8 KV through your line, since every appliance is turned off, the wires won't catch fire in your house. the ones that they run on your line will surely be assraped.

    thats the problem, they don't give a shit about us

    they would rather screw someone over for months than pay a little more money to make someone even a little satisfied, its disgusting.

    You pay $900 to your neighbour just for a misunderstanding? :wtf:

    You could add $50 and get a QX9650 OEM or mad weed for that money and enjoy these 6 months.

    jk.

    That is deserving of going in a sig quote lol

    But seriously glad everything worked out man. I know what its like to not have enough money to go to school a particular semester. I was in limbeau this December when I had my car crash, and had to pay royalties to the Bitch lady that wanted $1400 ($200 more than it cost to fix it so she could make up for the inconvenience) for me accidentally hitting her. My parents bailed me out in both her and paying for my college, so I could still go. Now im stuck paying them money for the next few months still (40% paid off so far):laugh:



    But what im getting at is its tough having to deal with lifes unexpected expenses, but sadly thats just the way life is always thrown at us one way or another
