No ifs, buts, or maybes, no warning; even if one has never been late with a payment. By the time we get the bill there are usually only three or four days left till the due date. And there is no way to pay on line.

We used to pay the electricity bill on line, but the BPI and the Angeles Electricity Corp had a bit of a spat last year, so we have to queue up in the street once a month now.

[In the UK it is an offence to cut off essential services; water, electricity, mains gas; without a court order!]

We have to do the same otherwise you never get it, and as the water money only just covers the electricity running the pump we end up paying or we all get cut off.
