My parents have had a standby generator for about 4 years, have used it a total of 4hrs in the last 3 years, this year it went out and they have lost power about half a dozen times all for 2+ days and the asshole repair guy has little to no rush in getting repaired.... They are far from happy.

Did everyone get that much ice? Nothing happened down here and I don't watch the local news.

I was a little disappointed. I think the ice storm a couple years ago helped prune the weaker branches around this area.

I'm happy without ice. At the se time I'm still amazed people in MI don't at least have a heat source for lost power. Seems like an expensive mistake.

Some people live in modular homes that don't have the ability to have secondary heating. Of course, this 'someone' has access to 3 or 4 fireplaces on grounds that he can use. (I work/live at Michindoh)

80% of the service calls today:

"OMG OMG, DTE is telling us power will be restored AFTER christmas, we need this fixed ASAP"


lady, we are booked until February, so if you would like to pay OT, we can have a tech out today around 5pm.

"OMG, THIS IS ROBBERY, I CAN'T BELIEVE YOU AREN'T MAKING MORE SPOTS AVAILABLE"



rinse and repeat.



Excuses I've heard today for needing emergency service (none of these were for failures, lack of maintenance)

1. My horse is dehydrated. I need my well pump working
2. Had spleen surgery, medication needs to be refridgerated
3. I had service scheduled with you guys last month, but you forgot to show up, so you should come out ASAP for the same price
4. no heat
5. it's almost christmas
6. no heat
7. it's almost chirstmas
8. no heat
9. it's almost chirstmas.






blah blah, your lack of planning does not constitute an emergency on my end, unless you're willing to pay.
