I got a message on my cell phone to call BC Hydro immediately.
Once I got to my office I returned the call.
Me: Hello it’s Jeff Bridge I got an urgent call from you, what’s up?
BC Hydro Employee or Call center employee I am not sure which: Thank you Mr. Bridge I was calling to let you know you are the last person left in BC That does not have a smart Meter installed.
Me: Really the last person?
BCHE: Yup and we would like to send somebody out and get that job finished today. Is it convenient?
Me: No ( in hysterics ) in fact I can tell you for fact that I am not the last person who doesn’t have a smart meter/
BCHE: You are
Me: No my neighbor doesn’t have one either as evidenced by the sign covering his old meter telling you to stay off his yard and not to install one. Do I have to walk down the street and do a meter count and make you look even worse. I have no intention of dealing with you any further because you lied and I am not in the habit of dealing with liars.
I wonder how many other people received calls like this?
What could be stupider given all the press over all the that people have refused smart meters.
Is it any wonder that is the approach they would take with their customers given the example set by the current government? ( Just look at the recent round of phone calls on the Surrey Casino project as evidence of how they do business)
They must have all been trained by Rich Coleman.
