$400 a room

i live in a room.  1 room.   today when i saw my electric bill was $393.77 i was sure that it must be a mistake.  in fact, i thought last months bill for $261 was a mistake.  20 minutes and 37 seconds ago i called con-ed to figure out what’s going on here.  a recording came on and told me the wait time to speak with a representative was 5 minutes.  ok, not too bad, i thought.  about 15 seconds after that, a recording came on and told me the wait was now 3 minutes – (even better!) followed just a couple of seconds later with an announcement that due to unusually high call volume the wait time could not be estimated and i should use the automated system or go to their website for help.   mother f#*^!ers.

at 28 minutes and 42 seconds brian picked up the phone.  he was of no help and by the time i finished speaking with him i was too strung out to ask for a supervisor.

at 49 minutes and 52 seconds i hung up.   i’m thinking pinkberry.
