Ryan retells the story from Achievement Hunter’s birthday stream about his unexpected $13k refund from his electric company, this time to Meg on their streams!
Ryan: Oh, man, I just had a real good day with the electric company. Meg: What’d you do? Ryan: Well, I did nothing; I got called like last week by the, uh, power company and they’re like “Yeaah, turns out, heh, our mistake, someone forgot to bill you for a month, so we’re gonna be sending you a bill for thirteen hundred dollars(Meg gasps)–do you need to, like, pay for that with an installment plan or something?” Meg: Oh my god!! Ryan: I was like… . Meg: Why is your electricity bill so high!? Ryan: Ooh, no, no, it comes around, hold on. Uh, so, uh what happens is they then were like “yeah, you got this two meter thing,” uhm, I was like “two meter thing? How do I have two meters? That doesn’t make any sense.” “Yeah, you got commercial meter and residential; we just–we forgot–someone set up something wrong and, like, anyway,” I was like “I don’t have commercial on my property, I–house.” Meg: Right. Ryan: They’re like “Y’know what? That does seem weird! We’ll get back to ya!” So a week and a half goes by and they’re like “yeaah, we’ve been billin’ you for the wrong meter for a long time, (Meg: Oh my god!) we owe you thirteen thousand dollars.” Meg: (gasps) Oh my god!! (Ryan laughs with her) Well that’s great that you’ve been paying it without fucking noticing. Ryan: Uuuuh, look, it’s just been high since we moved in the house and we just assumed that we had a really shitty house! Like, “I guess it’s just incredibly–”(startled by game) Meg: Energy inefficient? Ryan: Yeah! And have been trying to fix that, but, uh. Turns out it’s just that they were charging me for some other house–or, building! Meg: Well that’s cool that you get, like, free electricity for a good while! Ryan: Oh, no, I was–they’re like (Meg: Oh, no?) “we could just keep that on a credit for ya!” and I was like “no, I think, for 13,000, I’ll just take a check!” Meg: Yeah, “just give it back to me!” Ryan: Yeah, nah, that’s the amount of money–that’s–it’s funny, but 13,000 is exactly the amount of money that I want a check; I don’t want to just give you credit for that. (Meg: Yeah! Well, what a dick…!) ‘Cause who knows whose meter I’ll be paying for for the next couple years! Meg: Right! That’s so shitty. Ryan: Welp! Honestly, I gotta say, despite–I mean, they made a little mix up and apparently it was, uh, there’s somebody who has a address that’s very similar to mine or something–I dunno how it happened–anyway! But, hey! They made it right! I gotta give it to them. Meg: That’s good! Yeah, at least they admitted they were wrong. Ryan: I do think it’s funny they noticed their own mistake–or, they noticed the mistake, and that they were trying to get me to pay them more money, and that cost them $13,000. Meg: Yeah! (laughs) They were like “no, we’re gonna need that–wait a second… .” Ryan: (laughs) I really wanted to ask if they needed to set up an installment plan or something? But. Meg: Yeah, “you wanna put that in an installment plan, or…?” Ryan: (laughs) Owning a house is fun! Meg: (amused, but weary) Yeaah. I feel ya. Ryan: I just took that money and threw it straight into my backyard. Meg: Oooh, what’re you doing in your backyard~? Ryan: Yeah, we got it redone. ‘Cause it has just been, like, a mudpit, so long. Great with dogs. Meg: Your rattlesnake pit, you mean? Ryan: Yeah, exactly.
