19. So, what is your solution to my situation? Should I have refused
Edited on Tue Sep-16-08 06:24 PM by kestrel91316
to accept the free upgrades?

Yes or no?

Should I call them and demand that they come back and remove the stuff? Seriously.

My budget never allowed for lighting upgrades of this magnitude. My money always had to go to more urgent needs, which I doubt you would understand. I am quite sure you have never run a small business like mine on such a tight shoestring.

When did I condemn "for profit businesses" in general? I merely pointed out the obvious superiority of our publically-owned utility.

I am NOT your alleged neighbor, Dave. I am my own person. You know absolutely nothing about my personal lifestyle and choices. You have no clue about the sacrifices I have made in my life decisions with an eye toward making the world a better place.

Why do you hate energy conservation? Do you work for a for-profit utility, lol? Sure sounds like it. Either that, or you are a Republican or Libertarian, and I would remind you that this is not called Democratic Underground for no reason. If you find us Democrats and our values so despicable, I suggest you find somewhere else to go flinging your insults.

Edit: If you have a neighbor who lives wastefully in a 3500 sf home, you must live in a pretty nice neighborhood of large wasteful homes. I personally occupy 800 sf. Who's the one who needs to do a little self-examination in this picture? Hm, and you are in GA. No comment.
