PostSubject: keystone cops...   Thu Dec 10, 2015 9:35 am

My friend firefly asked me to thank for the leads from forum.
Furthermore he asked me to post the update...
4 suspects were apprehended and pit in a jail (detention) they were kept in jail for 48 hrs and RELEASED BECAUSE THE JUDGE DIDN'T SHOW FOR ARRAIGHMMENT !!??
apparently cops had to wait a week or two to do the search of suspects houses because cop's car was broken (junior officer street raced the car week before and blew the engine ...)
of it was not so sad it would REALY be hilarious!
Well as I always say, Eleuthera is not for everyone..
Read the book " PLEASE FONT STOP THE CARNEVAL". Hillarious similar accounts of incompetence ..

I would suggest passing this info on to the editor@theeleutheran.com - This kind of behavior should not be allowed and maybe public "embarrassment" may change future behavior.  I have to admit, I have seen things like this with government soooo many times it's sad.  In cases where it has affected me and it was something that could have been prevented, I raise such a stink that many times it does get addressed.  There's many things that we love about Eleuthera and we don't want to see it changed, however, there are some basic things that are just not acceptable and should be corrected for the sake of the public. 

As a note, I have been without water for over 2 weeks.  My pump blew so I decided I'd switch to Bahamas Water and Sewerage.  Turns out the gal who gets the paperwork done for the south was out... for a week... and NO ONE on the whole island was capable except for her.  I raised such a stink and emailed complaints to the water and sewerage dept (what if she died?  there was really no one to back her up?  Ridiculous and unacceptable) that the head of the company called to help me resolve it.  Send my app to another girl who was sitting in the office for her, he says.  I did this and contacted the other girl and she has no access to computers in this office so couldn't get my app).  Had to hand deliver it to her and then had to wait for her to go into GH so she could enter it in the computer (remember - no access in RSD - computer was locked to the other girl).  Then had to wait for them to inspect so they could tell me how much $$ and then had to bring it to them in person in cash).  Then... supposedly, in 5-10 business days it would get installed.  Today is day 10.  Still no sign of them.  Called yesterday and their backhoe had flat tires and they're waiting for them to come from Nassau!

We have a phrase we say all the time... FI... Fucking Incredible.  This is FI!!!  In this island, I could probably do the same job it takes two people to do in a week, I alone could do in two days.  It sometimes blows my mind that our electricity actually works and the planes can stay in the air.... I just don't see the intelligence and dedication levels that should be there....  
Just had to vent a little as I get ready to take a cold 5 gallon bucket bath....  thank you.

Same thing with the power co.  Only one bloke down in Rock Sound is capable of calculating the deposit requirement.  Could not get it done in GH, had to drive all the way down there and wait for him to get in the office in order to get the deposit in with the power co.  I raised such a stink since I could not believe there was NO cross training.  I guess these folks are afraid to train someone else for job security.

"What ya hate is what ya love" these examples are A) hilarious B) happen to long term residents at least once every six months C) would make a fantastic new book D) the Captain would be willing to publish D) and lastly explains why we never have to worry about becoming Key West.

We would however welcome the 21st century sooner than later.

sometimes the .."HILARIOUS" borders on " INSANE"

Go figure and chuckle...
About four years ago, after water/sewer co introduced credit card pmt I used my U$ card and PREPAID U$100.00 for my water account
Charge appeared on my credit card statement and because I didn't receive my water bills regularly I didn't worry about my water

THEN I RECEIVED OFFICIAL RATHER THREATENING LTR FROM WATER CO, STATING THAT MY WATER WILL BE SHUT-OFF,
PENALTY OF $50 WILL BE ADDED TO MY BILL AND THERE WILL BE $300.00 RE-CONNECTING FEE APPLIED WHEN I DECIDE TO BE RECONNECTED!

Boom , basta, final!
To make the story short, I kept e-mailing, writing letters, providing proof from my credit card co re pmt - no luck!
I kept using water, didn't pay any bills, penalty kept increasing... until about three years later when I received out of nowhere my water bill stating:
AMOUNT PAYABLE :....- $600.00!  (READ MINUS $600.00)
I called and inquired what that meant and was told that I had " OVER-PAYMENT OF $600.00 !!

After some five, perhaps ten phone-calls, many e-mails to water co, I gave up, accepted this "gift of stupidity, and moved on...
I still water my lawn from "credit" created perhaps by the same idiot who wrote threatening letters with $300.00 penalties..
they never explained the "disappearance of my credit card $100 payment, or $300 penalty, nor "re-connection fees"
simply HILARIOUS!
YOU LOOSE SOME, YOU WIN SOME

p.s. I lived thru much longer and even more hilarious encounter with tax dpt where I was told that I "OWED MORE THAN $9000.00, (yes nine thousand dollars for "past tax years" when my house was occupied/registered by previous owner/builder)
poor sucker never lived there, never occupied the house, but some idiot in "inland revenue dpt" felt that the builder/ now myself owed the $9000.00!!
It took five years to resolve, but I DIDN'T PAY A PENNY! 
simply HILARIOUS!
KALIK IS COLD, WATER IS WARM, HEY LIFE'S GREAT!

I had to come back and complain some more... you all will see my post from Dec 10 about not having water for over 2 weeks... guess what?  Still don't have it!  After several calls (me calling them, not them calling me) I have finally found out it's because of a back bill of $1950 owed!  Now, we only have our rental apartment hooked up and that is paid in full.  So I start the fight.  They show me a meter number I have never seen that has my husband's conveyance attached to it and that one owes $1950.  Long story short... determined that in Oct of 2012 when we hooked the apartment up to city water they told me there was a $3133 bill owed... I figured the past renters had screwed us, so I paid it and had them turn the water on at the apartment.  Turns out, they gave me the wrong meter number (Donald's daddy's number - also named Donald) and we paid his outstanding bill and have been paying his monthly bill ever since.  Never heard a peep from him... but the water company is at fault for several things... 1.  giving me the wrong meter number, 2.  turning on the right meter when we paid the bill for the wrong one (if they had turned on the meter for the same one I had paid for, we would have figured out this problem immediately bcs our apartment would still not have had water), 3.  letting our apartment bill get up to $1950 and not shutting it off... if the apt had been turned off anytime in the past 4 years we'd have figured out I was paying the wrong bill.   ARGHHHH!  Now I'm in a fight to get my money back and get my water at my house turned on.   FI!  Do you know how much it sucks to have lived out of a 5 gallon bucket this long?
