We used to get hate mail like this all the time.

In case you hadn’t noticed… We’ve moved. To Tejas.

However, when we used to call the Seattle area home, we got letters like this from Puget Sound Energy (PSE) about every month.

As near as we could figure, all of our neighbors were either retired couples who lived in Hawaii half the year or yuppies who were always at work. As a family of five, who homeschooled all three kids, the power meter apparently was constantly hovering a couple feet above the ground, ready for takeoff.

We’re pretty sure that several acres of trees were killed by PSE every year just to make us feel bad about our energy consumption.

Here in San Antonio, CPS Energy sends us thank you letters and fruit baskets.

(Mostly kidding.)

Go figure.
