Turns out my oven was on for two weeks straight while I was away on vacation. What should I do? Posted on March 11, 2023 by PrepHole Contributor Turns out my oven was on for two weeks straight while I was away on vacation. What should I do?
turn it off?
I did, thanks genius.
they will refund the electricity or gas cost if you explain that you didn't actually use it.
Is that real?
You never know with americans
Our water company did this with a spike in the water bill due to frozen pipes that burst in the yard, and we didn't even have to ask; they contacted us when the crazy usage showed up on the smart meter.
Of course that was offset by the fact that the sewer charge is tied to water usage and there was no corresponding increase in water going into a drain.
Regardless it was about a $400 charge we didn't have to pay.
Never heard of a gas or electric company being that reasonable though, I've seen them come out to replace a clearly out of whack meter and the new one read even faster, smart meters still getting averaged at the users expense even though they were pushed as removing the need for estimated averaging, etc

Don't they also cause cancer and mental illnesses?
smart meters sure do

They aren't measuring the water going down the drain. They assume your summer use is the same as your winter use for the sanitary system, and anything over your winter consumption in the summer doesn't get the waste water charge.

This is how people become Karens
karen is just 'moron' but for white people, stop using racial slurs.
>run oven for 2 weeks
>demand that your retardation is distributed to other people unfortunate to share your zip code
I left my ovens on from 1933 to 1945. The gas bill was outrageous.
What were you cooking? How many ovens? Final throughput total?
Well, actually the ovens were wood fired, and I used the gas to prepare the uhh stuff.
What? Why didn't you use coke or coal?
There was a duel shortage at the time.
You can kiss your piggy bank before you break it... to ease it's pain
First off, was it an electric or gas oven? If the latter, you open some windows and get fresh air into your house; you potentially have dangerous levels of both carbon dioxide and (especially) carbon monoxide inside. If you don't have a carbon monoxide detector, get one now and plug it in. If electric, well, enjoy paying your super high electric bill for this month...
that might be, I've had a wicked headache since I've gotten back, thought it was from being tired from travel.
>Leaves his oven on for 2 weeks and doesn't fucking ventilate his house immediately
I'm sure the first thing you do when you get home from a 2 week vacation is immediately open all the windows, idiot.
Who the fuck doesn't do that? You enjoy just sitting in 2 week old stale unused apartment air? Fucking disgusting
You're lucky to be alive
Two more weeks.
it's this aeuphenism you should jerk off bro
A quick way to vent the room is by taking a big gulp of air near the oven, then going outside and breathing out. Do that a few times and it'll clear up
Promote it to head chef for working so hard
