The Energy Gluttons of the 4th Floor

Gone are the days of discretion. Gone are the days of a covert envelope arriving in the locked mailbox, informing you (and only you) how much money you owe to the electricity company. Gone are the days...

This is the welcome home we get once a month:


As you can see, the electricity bill for the entire building is posted on the door.


As you can also see, all the numbers surrounding ours are significantly lower. As you can also also see, these numbers are displayed for all to see. And, being the foreigners in town whose strange and curious ways are always worth knowing about, I wouldn't be surprised if any one of our hundreds of neighbors could tell you the exact amount the energy gluttons on the fourth floor are paying this time around.

I would like a week log book of your energy usage.

Guess it wasn't encouraging that the one home was a whoppin' 12.0. That's kind of insane - I wonder how they do it!

That is crazy they post them!! Ha! Guess they want to save a stamp/some hassle?

Do people even live in all of those other apartments? How do they stay unfrozen? Oh my.
