SE Man : Er yeah, hi, we're from Southern Electric?
Me : Oh right, have you come to read the meter? [then notice there's a 2nd
SE Man : Er no, er this is my colleague. We've got a list of people in your area and er, it look like, er you might not be getting the best deal at the moment?
Me : Well, I'm with npower anyway not Southern Electric. [nb. they still read the meter even though the bill comes from npower. Yes, confusing I know]
SE Man : Yeah, but, I dunno I've been given this list and you might not be getting the best price?
Me : I'm sorry, I don't understand. [understanding perfectly that they didn't know what they were here for]
SE Man : Yeah, no, er [points to my highlighted name on his list] apparently you might not be on the best tariff?
Me : Well I'm with npower anyway, and I'm quite happy with my tariff.
SE Man : Er, ok, no worries then.
[walks dejectedly away with his mate]
As I watched them walk away, I felt quite sorry for them.
