Do I Really Want to Friend my Electric Company?

This the back of the envelope my electric bill came in.

I am enjoying getting more active on Facebook, and I've become a fan on several companies I like -- Oreos, Shining Stars stuffed animals -- but my electric company?

Talk about just jumping on the bandwagon.

The tips on the ConEd fan page actually aren't bad, but I just can't bring myself to become a FAN of my UTILITY COMPANY who has the government's permission, nay, blessing, to OVERCHARGE me.

It's probably going to become some scary Big Brother thing where if you DON'T become a fan you'll get cut off... AAAAAAGH!

Ahem. Excuse me!
Don't know what got into me there.

Isn't it a little weird, though? Next thing you know the cable company will want me to friend them. Sorry, I already got free HBO 'cause I've got real friends in my building (meaning the co-op board, who hooked us all up legally).

Had to look up "jump the shark" but HA! You're right! First us over-30's got on Facebook and now Con Ed? It's so over.

Last night I had a dream where someone used the term "jump the shark." Some part of me loves that phrase now!
