    I spit at lots of people through my computer screen. Not only does it "teach them a lesson" but it keeps the screen clean and shiny.

    Re: Most Annoying Utilities?

    I would say electric and gas.

    Why?

    Because they are monopolies, at least where I live. Unless I go propane, I have no choice but to pay for their 'service'. Things such as telephone, cable, internet... there is ALWAYS a choice.

    In the winter time here, we have wind chills down to -20 degrees Fahrenheit, with normal temps well below zero.

    Welcome to Kansas. Where one day it's 60, and the next its 28.

    Re: Most Annoying Utilities?

    BEFORE I post a response I would like to ask where this would fall. It is the Internet Provider. It is our telephone company. We don't have cable and that SUCKS! Cable internet is 100x better than DSL. DSL bogs down quickly in our home. I had cable internet for about 3 years and NEVER had an issue with speed (that wasn't related to MY lack of knowledge of proper choice in Modem). Our phone company is TERRIBLE. Their speed sucks. Their service sucks. The quality of their equipment sucks. We have constant internet problems.

    The close 2nd is our Electricity. It goes out when the wind blows. I live out in the boondocks and there is a hunting camp behind our house and we have been asking for the company to cut the line between our transformer and the camp because they no longer draw power (we were told that we could have it removed...and that the place hasn't drawn power on the line for like 5 years). They said they will do it...they haven't. That has been the primary cause of our power outages because it runs through heavy woods.
    The Crowd is not the sum of its parts.

    Water Works. I tend to land on that more than I do Electric Company. It's not so bad, unless someone owns both. Then you have to pay 10 times the dice roll. Sheesh.
