Attention Slackers

All of you lazy bums out there who never remember to actually put a check in the mail, listen up. City Utilities is no longer allowing you to save yourself a stamp by paying the tech when he shows up to disconnect you. According to this article the technician who knocks on your door is no longer allowed to accept any cash or checks as payment from anyone. However, you do still have the option of immediately calling in and paying with a debit or credit card.

What surprises me the most about this article is the fact that you used to be able to pay the technician at the door. To me, that just doesn't seem wise. Especially if you pay with cash. What's to prevent him from just pocketing it and disconnecting you anyway after you've closed the door? Not that CU techs are shady, just that some people are shady. I guess with a check you wouldn't have too much to worry about, but still I would not have been comfortable with handing them payment. Of course, I can see how it would be convenient if your disconnect came as a complete surprise.

Either way, it doesn't matter any more. I'm just going to have to memorize my debit card # so I can call it in next time...wait, I mean you guys will have to memorize your card #'s...nevermind.
