Yes , Life happens....

I, (We,Us , Mostly Me, for sure Me) forgot to pay the electric ......
Florida Power & Light doesn't like it if you don't pay them and they WILL turn your butt off and as fast as they possibly can .... They always call me, I mean ALWAYS, call me to tell me that I'm late .... This is the usual call they make to me : If this is an oversight on your part ,would you please pay now, If this is an oversight on our part, NO! strike that, its NEVER an oversight on our part ! YOU yes YOU the bum who didn't pay her bill, have 48 hours to pay or we will storm out there in rain or shine and take what's ours from you, the sweet, wonderful , kind , but brain dead person we are robbing blind as this call is being made to you....
Well it isn't exactly like that but it feels that way.
They never called this time , I swear !
I went to the bathroom just after they turned it off , Of course I flipped the light switch......
I ran out to the pay station paid the power bill, cut off my right arm and gave it to them , signed over my youngest Child's soul , gave them a pint of blood and then was told it may be as much as 24 hours before it was turned back on (OMG the horrors of being a one income family and having to take bird droppings off of everyone !) Because : FPL doesn't have humans working for them anymore well, except for the automated humans that turn off your power, well maybe she wasn't human just a cyborg that looked human ..... Who the heck knows , I called the place and after 20 minutes of this and that I got a person , (a real person!) they said in automated sounding voice that a call had already been placed and that it would be turned on within 24 hours but she also said because I have medical issues , probably sooner than later......
So any who , I went home and I came up with a list of things I did when the power went out:
I sat down at my dead computer thinking the nerve of some people , they want your blood not just your money and wrote :
Turn on my electric now please ! Turn on my electric now please ! Turn on my electric now please ! Turn on my electric now please ! Turn on my electric now please ! Turn on my electric now please ! Turn on my electric now please ! Turn on my electric now please ! Turn on my electric now please ! etc.....for a total of 16 times , then had to stop because I was about to go nuts and I couldn't read my writing anymore LOL
Then I looked up at my still ceiling fans and thought OMG ,there's dust bunnies hitching rides on my fan blades, so I dusted them , as well as other things I could now see because the house was open and daylight was finally allowed to be at my house , I should be a vampire according to my Children because my house is cold and dark ALWAYS !
I soon decided it was too much of an effort and quickly quit that quacky idea......
I then started crying, which I also quit, because that's like saying your sorry , a sign of weakness......... well according to my other 1/4 and besides it wasn't my fault the morons NEVER called me to remind me that I was late *blink blink*
I then heard my stomach growl because I forgot to eat while the power was on and now I remember that was one of my to do things of the day .
Think about life but STOP as fast as possible because life sucks most days so why think about it to much... and besides I'm against suicide so I quit that too.
I then picked up the phone to call my Friend in Ohio but ,(Hey dumb me) the electric is off so you can't call anyone the phone is cordless and needs electric to work !
So I used my nextel and beeped my Daughter.....
She was very understanding but said if the electric comes back on before night time "will you watch the Baby ?" I was like WTH , I'm in crises mode here ...... But since this is my first Grand Child I said OK .....
I then Thought about get rich quick schemes so that I could take over FP&L.
That hurt and I smelled wires burning in my already cram packed mind so I quit that also.
I then pretended that a FP&L agent was standing in front of me and so I cursed them out for a good 20 minutes(even though its not their fault, I want to blame them anyways ) I had to stop because the Dachshunds were looking at me like I was about to beat them or something and hid in the bat cave(under the nightstand we call the bat cave because if they get into trouble they hide there) .... so I quit that too
Smoked lots of cigarettes , because I am a nervous wreck now , Smoke em if ya got em......
Listened to Dachshunds bark at every thing they heard because the house is quiet and they hear every little noise ( note to self : Self get bark collars for the pests that live here, Really I wouldn't because I tried one on the Boy that lives in the spare room and he yowled for hours about his hair standing on end and everything he touched shocked him ??? Who would have thunk it )
I then got smart and dug out my dusty planner, dusted it off and think, I am now using this thing so that this NEVER happens again(fat chance because I haven't got a brain cell left in my head and I'll forget the planner as soon as this is over...... )
Pray for rain so it doesn't get hot in here .
Life happens ya know ........
And then exactly 3 hours after the demons turned it off, the robots came and turned it on again, (doing happy dance here) ....... Oh how I love FP&L...... Right they are still the same people that make millions off us every day , I still hate the idiots and always will , someone want to make money, Come down here and start an electric company !
OK , OK I know this is really my fault but sometimes Life gets in the way and I have to admit it !
