Inconvenient Modern Conveniences

, , , , | Working | June 21, 2020

My partner discovers he accidentally paid twice on his monthly electric bill and therefore has a very low bill for the next month, coming out to just under $5. He attempts to pay the bill online.

First, he types in the amount he wishes to pay, which is under $5. The website says he must pay $5 or more. 

He angrily types in $5, because what the hey, he’ll give them the extra several cents. The website then tells him he has to pay the exact amount of the bill. 

The entire point of using the online portal was because he didn’t want to speak with an actual person, which he ended up having to do anyway.
