I got my gas bill this evening. I nearly had a heart attack. Apparently I have used $703.04 worth of gas to heat my home over the last 12 days.
However, after I breathed into a paper bag and had a glass of Shiraz I worked it out. ActewAGL have calculated my bill based on a “previous meter reading” of 0 to a (current when they read the meter) meter reading of 818 meaning that they think I used 818 units of gas.
However, my previous meter reading was 799 not 0 (it says so on my last bill), so I have actually used 19 units of gas NOT 818.
Using ActewAGL’s maths, each unit of gas costs me $1.16, therefore my bill ought to have been $22.10 not $703.04.
Is it just me?
How painful will it be to have ActewAGL rectify this error? Yes, I know, rectally painful I’ve seen how some of you work, but really, anyone?
