    Customer: “I’m trying to disconnect someone else’s account, because their bills keep coming to my mailbox.”

    Me: “You’re trying to cut off someone else’s lights because their bills keep coming to you?”

    Customer: “Well… um… I probably shouldn’t do that, should I? I’ll just… take it to their door.” *click*

    Me: “Welcome to [power company]. How may I help you?”

    Caller: “Hi, I have solar panels, and I’m moving house. I was just
    wondering if you could transfer the power?”

    Me: “Oh, you wanted to know if you can take the panels to your new house? You’ll have to contact a solar company for that sir, but I don’t think so.”

    Caller: “No. I don’t want to move the panels. Can’t you just move the power from them across? Like, through the air or by cable or something?”

    Me: “I can’t do that for you unless you pay your debt in full, sir.”

    Caller: “Why are you being a b**** about this? Just let it slide!”

    Me: “We’ve been letting it slide for months, sir. You now owe us in excess of a thousand dollars. Our rules are very clear: we are not to reconnect your power until you pay your debt.”

    Caller: “F*** you! I’m going to kill you! I’m going to come to your house and kill you!”

    Me: “The difference between you and me, sir, is that I know where YOU live.”
