Woman's Power Shut Off Over 1 Cent Charge

POSTED: 9:58 am EDT May 16, 2006

FLINT, Mich. -- Just how powerful is a penny?

To a Michigan energy company it's the difference between keeping your lights on and having them turned off.

Consumers Energy turned off the power to a Flint woman after she paid all but one penny of her bill, which was $1,662.08. The company told Jac****ine Wi***ams the power would not be turned on until it received the penny.

The woman went into the Consumers' Energy office and paid the penny and got a receipt. After seven hours without electricity, her power was restored.

Give me a FUCKING BREAK! How Fucking Stupid!

Welcome to AmeriKa, Star, where the people get fucked 24/7, but never kissed. She should have hired a lawyer and sued them. But wait, lawyers cost money don't they? Joe

You know where I would have shoved that penny for them....
