Scholasticah Rowland had been married to her 57-year-old husband Robert for 17 years when he lost his battle with cancer last August.
Ever since his death, Mrs Rowland, 54, of Crayford Way, says she has been fighting EDF Energy over an unpaid bill of £292.
She claims her husband always paid for energy bills, and that she wanted the last one written off as a gesture of goodwill.*blinks*
“These people care more about making money rather than people’s emotions.
“Instead of mourning my husband’s death, I’m constantly thinking of EDF. It’s like cutting my wound which is already open. I can’t carry on like this.”Errr, they're a business, love. While I'm sure it's a personal tragedy for you, why exactly should they care?
After being contacted by News Shopper, EDF agreed to credit Mrs Rowland's account with the full amount owed for the bill.There you go! Got bills you can't pay with a utility company? Get a sob-story in the local paper in an attempt to guilt-trip them into waiving them.
All you have to lose is your last scrap of dignity and self-respect...
