I live in Arab AL  where we are required to be a "member" of the coop here for our electricity.  The problem is, the guy who runs it and the people who work there are just bullies.  Today I am woke up at 7:30 am by a man who was given an order to disconnect my services.  I asked for what. He said b/c the bill is late. I said ok and just how late is it? I just paid on it two weeks ago. I owed $89 and they were disconnecting. The man that runs the coop thinks he can just bully people. So I called and told him how ridiculous this was considering I just paid on the bill two weeks ago. He knew this but didnt care. He began getting loud with me saying you also have to pay the collection fee or it will be cut off in a couple of minutes. I told him I pay my bills I have been paying my bills and this was uncalled for. He stated, well you have another bill about to come out too. I just told him bye and hung up. I paid the bill plus the $20. However....this was just wrong especially when I know of people who live by me that had a $700 bill and theirs was late and they still had power...I guess if you are not friends with him or on a personal level with him he doesnt care. He just does what he wants.  My bils are paid. And this Arab Electric Coop....its just a man trying to control people.  But I let him know while I was on the phone...Im not one to be pushed around or bullied. I paid the bill as always but he was wrong to send someone to disconnect when payment was just made.

So, were you behind on your payments, or not?

AUTHOR: Ken - (USA)

It doesn't matter what others are doing.

"when I know of people who live by me that had a $700 bill and theirs was late and they still had power."

How many people who live by you had $700 bills and still had power....and how did you become aware of this?

Pay your bill...on time, it's NOT optional.

No I don't work for the co-op.
