Thread: Don't use our smart meter and we'll shut off your water

    Default Don't use our smart meter and we'll shut off your water

    Water company threatening to shut off my service if I don't accept their wireless meter, despite ours working perfectly fine and willing to call in meter readings. Also, was notified by employee that inspected our meter prior that I'm responsible for damages if they screw up my old pipes when installing it, so I should get a plumber to replace the pipes so they can replace my meter which, again, is working perfectly fine. I always wanted a potential incendiary device in my home. Aren't lithium batteries in those meters to power them? And doesn't lithium explode when exposed to water? And isn't it not a good thing to have fire anywhere near gas pipes? Is my brain matter safe?

    No. All of this needs to be in a bunker.
    The essential English leadership secret does not depend on particular intelligence. Rather, it depends on a remarkably stupid thick-headedness. The English follow the principle that when one lies, one should lie big, and stick to it. They keep up their lies, even at the risk of looking ridiculous.

    You gave no advice. I think the IQ of RPF has dropped drastically

    Well, I suppose you can't really change water companies.

    Hm. Interesting scenario.

    I know that when the gas company wanted to install a wireless meter, I told em I didnt want one, I'll call it in when I need it. They said, no, we have to have it wireless. So I said okay, I'll get a new gas company. Which I did. That's the beauty of the free market.

    But it doesn't seem like you're in a free market situation. There's a word for your situation that escapes me at the moment.

    I concur about the IQ. Which part of putting everything in a bunker did you not understand?

    Also the phone company has been trying to bully me into getting rid of my copper landline and replacing it with cable. They say it's better, except for the part the battery only lasts 4 hours if we lose power, then no phone after that. Better.

    I don't even check into that crap. If I wanted a well, I'd put one in and keep my pie hole shut.

    I'm pretty sure, one of your neighbors would see the well drilling rig in your yard and report you.

    No one reported us when we had bulldozers in the yard and Mr Animal put in our unpermited retaining walls. Or when he built the giant tree-house. Or even when we had the pool put in. If you pay people in cash, they're usually willing to overlook things like permits and other government charges.

    That's also where being good to our neighbors comes in. I stay friendly with everyone even the one's I don't like.

    People used to get shot over water claims...diversion, denial of, etc.. Just sayin'.
    Theye have refused their Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

    Theye have erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.

    Theye kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies

    Theye have combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution,

    For protecting them, by a mock Trial from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:

    For cutting off our Trade with parts of the world:

    For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:

    For depriving us in many cases, of the benefit of Trial by Jury:

    Theye plundered and destroyed the lives of our people.

    Theye are at this time transporting Armies of Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation, and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & Perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy of a civilized nation.

    I just received a similar letter in the mail. We have municipal water and it's illegal to install a well. What can I do to stop this?

    Thoughts?
