Wasn't triggered by your story Owen. . .

Here's another feel-good story: Our daughter-in-law works for an electric company in the billing department. She feels terrible about it, but part of her job is to call people who have fallen in arrears. But since the beginning of the epidemic the electric companies (this one anyway) had suspended shutting off the power regardless of non-payment. However, that time of having a grace period has come to an end. There were always a lot of people who couldn't/wouldn't pay regardless of how the economy was doing. They don't answer their phones since they can tell who is calling, or they put a block on the power company's number. So then letters have to be written informing the customer that they must contact the company to set up a payment plan or else be cut off.

So I realize this doesn't sound much like good news so far. However my daughter-in-law said that last week a lady donated $2500.00 to assist those who have had their finances affected by the pandemic. Now, I don't really know how the company would know - I guess they knew who had been laid off due to the pandemic vs. someone who was chronically unemployed. . .

But the company selected five families who fit that category and my DIL got to contact them to tell them the good news, that an anonymous person had paid their bill. Of course, only one or two answered their phone. . . She said it was a relief to hear someone crying for joy instead of distress.
