Fucking Xcel energy.

I want to pay my electric bill.

I can pay over the phone. Except I get routed to phone hell, and after 30 minutes on hold, I give up and try again.

This time I get connected to a different phone hell, and only have to wait ten minutes.

I can pay my balance if I have my check routing number.

Oops, I don't have my checkbook with me.

Well, I can pay by credit card, but it's through a third party company, and they charge an extra $4.00 per $200.00.

And they don't take VISA.

Yes, that is correct, they don't accept VISA.

Look, I'm trying to pay my bill here, and you're blocking every avenue that I have. The only thing I have left is to make a payment at a payment center (Un-bank) after I get home from work. If they're open.

What is with these freaks?

Oh, yeah, and my wireless network is down at home.

I'm cranky.
