Just curious if the UC electric company can shut off your electricity when the weather is as cold as it has been lately? I know we should all pay our bills so none of those shit*y comments ok?

I don't have UC Electric, but if you know your bill will be paid late, try calling them to make a promise of payment or something. If it's due the 21st, you probably have a grace period, maybe a week. If you know you can't pay it til the 1st, just call, be very polite, and explain that you can't pay until the 1st, and ask that they please extend it, or take a post dated check. It's a try! It can't hurt.:)

Also, try a tax prep place, you might be able to get a refund anticipation loan or something. It won't be as much as if you wait a week or two for the IRS to deposit to your bank account, but I'd take the convenience penalty over power shut off. I hope that helps. And I hope you get to keep your utilities on.

I have tried and they are not willing to be very flexible. I guess being sued by my family when my frozen body is found is preferable to accepting a partial payment lol.

Unless the temperatures fall much lower you have nothing to worry about. If your house has any instillation at all then it will be much warmer inside than out. It isn't ridiculously cold outside either, it's just cold. Get a blanket, a candle and try to read a book since you won't be able to compute. There are many homeless people on the streets of America enduring much colder weather than we have EVER experienced here. Sorry to say it, but no one here is going to sympathize with you.

Thx cab and everyone else who answered or atleast tried to answer my question with some civility. I managed to talk to someone there who said they won't cut off the electricity bc it's so cold out. Now for you a-holes who think ppl who r having a tough time deserve all the hell they get, shame on you. I know they say the recession is over but not around here. There are no jobs around here that actually pay a living wage and I'm not sure why u jerks(u know who u are) seem to take glee in other ppl's misfortune. So much for those BS signs around here that say, "God is Lord over Union City." If he knew how sh*tty the majority of ppl are around here, he'd burn it all down and start over.

I sometimes feel the same way and you are correct but I have a bundle package with mine and when I get the internet plus a couple of other things it's almost a deal you can't refuse.

Actually there are jobs around here if you really want to work. Is someone holding you hostage in Union City keeping you from going elsewhere to live and work where more jobs are? Seems to be the trend in Obion County for people to wait for jobs instead of going where jobs are. Best of Luck.

Oh guest your sentiments seem so sincere, dick. Here's a thought, if ppl r having trouble just paying their bills, do you actually think they have the money to MOVE away for a better job? Here's an idea jerk, think things through before u post them online for all to see. Best of luck with that brain injury u seem to be suffering from.
