Oh Enbridge, you're so sneaky...

Got a gas bill in the mail yesterday, but I didn't open it until this morning. My heart stopped as I saw a $600 amount in the bottom right corner. My inner monologue went a little something like:

"WHAAA? I've paid this bill! I know that I pay this bill every month!! It's always the same!! I PAY. I PAID!!!"

I could feel myself start to sweat and I looked at the clock to see that it was way too early to call Enbridge. I then took a closer look at the bill to see if I could figure out what the hell happened.

Then I felt my heart soar.

Next to the $600 some-odd bill were two glorious letters.

They were: CR

Yes, if you're a swift one (cudos, as it took me a little longer to figure out), you've realized that the bill wasn't a bill, but a paper demonstration of my overpayment on standardized bills.

So, wouldn't it be nice if all companies overestimated your usage for a year and then reimbursed you with a massive credit at the end that ends up meaning you get free service for at least the next three point five months?
