Cancelling utilities

July 5th, 2007

Here’s a funny story about our moving process. A certain member of my family was ringing all the power, water, gas and other utilities to cancel our conncetions and transfer them to our new place in Merredin.

After doing quite a few disconnections and reconnections in a row. The certain member of my family asked if we could have the gas connected in Merredin. The person politely said that we do not have gas available in Merredin. It is by large gas bottle only!

I wonder how many times they have been asked to connect gas to house 300 kilomtres away from their plant. I am sure they could do it for us, but it would probably cost about A$20 million or so for the pipeline šŸ˜‰
