you: hi jorge


Jorge: Hi. How can I assist you today?


you: my name is [omitted name], care for my acct #?


you: i need to discuss payment


you: and the recently waived deposit for my account, i called earlier today


Jorge: I will be happy to assist with the payment.


you: but the person has gone home


you: ok


you: can you see notes from my account?


you: [omitted name] , ###########-##


Jorge: Yes I can may i verify the name on the account and the service address?


you: [vital info omitted]


Jorge: Thank you for the information [name omitted], how are you this evening?


you: great


you: watching the game


you: just gotta get this done, but i see the online balance does not reflect the change made this afternoon


you: so im here


Jorge: Well that's good to hear now what questions did you have on the balance?


you: The $270 deposit was waived by an account specialist on the phone


you: and i told her i had to run to the bank and go to school


you: and if i called would their new CSR i'd speak with see the notes and appropriate ammount


you: she assured me


you: but my phones dying


you: and the internet runs on a computer thats plugged into the wall


you: so i figured i'd speak with you today


you: and see if i can do this online instead of wasting time waiting for phone to charge


you: basically.


Jorge: Ok well let me see what I can find out on the account as far as the balance. Please allow me 3-4 minutes


you: the balance should be about $20.96


you: no problem, im here bud thx


you: plus my new balance for april she said was in the mail already


you: i just wanna take care of the $20.96 now


you: and wait till i get paid for the other.


Jorge: Thank you for your patience at this time the balance is 130.37 with a past due of 34.03 and a current bill of 96.34. It may take at least a billing cycle to see the change but that is the balance at this time


you: I see. past due 34.03... when was it due?


you: i see april 15th on my paper bill as the FIRST due date on here


you: for anything


Jorge: It was due on 04/01/2011


you: so in order to avoid interruption of service we need the $34 taken care of?


you: $34.03


Jorge: Just the 34.03 for the deposit was waived at this time.


you: ok ok


you: just remember speaking to her, she said my previous balance was $284.03


you: $270 of that was waived, which leaves $14.03 plus $6.89 for my first bill


you: let me get my bill one sec, yes that's correct


you: $14.03 + $6.89


you: still, thats about $21, not $34.03


you: i fail to see the extra $13 in all of this


Jorge: It's ok I just want to make sure how much was removed of the deposit amount.


you: $270 was the full deposit ammount asked


Jorge: Let me just take a look for you. Please allow another 3-4 minutes.


you: ok thanks


Jorge: Thank you for your patience do apologize for the delay


you: no problem


Jorge: I am still looking into it for the first bill which was in 03/15/2011 was for an amount of 23.78 then the next bill came out which was for 10.25


Jorge: When added together the balance is 34.03 which is past due


you: that is all in-congruent with statements previously heard via telephone from account specialists early this afternoon


you: but i believe YOU see that in front of YOU...


you: because YOU have no reason to lie to me.....


you: and YOU only go by whats on the screen, am I right?


Jorge: of course and the amounts are what I am seeing on the invoices on the account


you: the back of my bill breaks down to $6.89


you: after all applicable taxes and base charges and whatever else fees


you: i used 28kwh


you: not 2800


you: not 280


you: twenty eight


you: 28kwh x .09cents per kwh


you: total energy consumption came to be less money than the $2.77 base charge you guys seem to think is necessary


you: that, combined with two more fees and/or taxes, came to $6.89


Jorge: Yes sir but again there were two bills prior to that bill that you are looking at.


you: this plus the $14.03 from the bill that said $284.03 -$270 of course


you: is it late fees being tacked on somewhere?


you: i still don't follow.


Jorge: There are billing date 03/15/2011 and 03/16/2011


you: ok


Jorge: There is one bill that was for an address of [address omitted]


Jorge: That was for the amount of 23.78


you: ok well i guess i have no other option. unless there's a comprehensive breakdown of all charges inccured, viewable somewhere by either me or a third party verifier


you: im at the will of what you say my bill is, even though it's incongruent with my records, or records of reliant csr's and account specialists


you: spoken with earlier today


Jorge: I can send the bills by email so you can see them?

you: i would love that in fact



you: i will handle all this tomorrow


you: thank you and good day.


you: still here until you need to say "thank you for being a reliant customer"


you: :)


Jorge: We thank you for being a reliant customer, we appreciate your business have a good evening as well.

you: peace

disclaimer: i know it's not a lot of cash, it's the motherfucking principle.
