stupid water district

I received my bill from the Laguna Madre Water District on March 20th.
The bill states it will be past due - with a fine of just under $4 added to the bill - if not paid by March 23.

How do they continue to get away with this scam?

Our water entity charges $4 to read the meter. So for about a year I went out and read the meter. I’d get my bill and it’d say “Incorrect reading” $4 charge. I took a different tactic. Our water was pretty cheap so I just thought, “Screw the bill,” and I sent in $100 a month for a few months. After a few months of credits on my bill, I got a warning that if I didn’t stop overpaying, I’d be fined. These ‘illities guys are no fun.

Usually they come out and just turn off the water without any notice. I was in the shower when that happened. You're lucky to even get a late notice.

Ah...the utilities and postal service are the two things I don't miss about living there.
