The girl should be grateful the guy decided to film instead of greeting her with a ball bat to the head.

There's a class action lawsuit against BC Hydro in BC, they're trying to charge $20/mnth for those with analog metres to send a metre reader out. I'd rather pay that than have a smart metre, but they haven't sent anyone out for a while, they've been estimating my usage, I know because once a week I read and write down my usage and the bills are higher than what I'm recording. I do think cell phones give off more EMR than smart metres, what I object to is the hackability, there's a friggin "How to hack smart metres" do it yourself online. wtf2.gif

My analog metre was replaced about a year before they tried to install a smart metre so I see no need for them to replace it chuckle.gif
