Taking things to extreme

posted 1 Aug 2013, 02:17 by Sandra Kirby
Some NZ news that has made headlines around the world today.  One of our electricity companies was obviously looking at areas where large amounts of power were being used and not paid for.  Sent out letters to these places threatening to cut off power if bills not paid.

In the normal course of business this might seem fair or even reasonable (though we have court cases which suggest cutting of power may not be fair or reasonable however not the point of this post)
However in this case it really was a matter of no-one taking oversight as one letter was sent to
The Occupier
771800 Streetlights
NPC Controll Point 394
9 Shearer Drive
Oakura

Yep - sent electricity bill to a lamp post!!
I believe the post is not planning on paying . .
