Life has been rather crazy these past few days. It’s been almost a week ago (it will be a week ago tomorrow) that the circuit breaker box in our house decided that it was going to stop working properly. We don’t have power to the house because the power company disconnected it to prevent an electrical fire from occurring until the breaker box is fixed.
We’ve tried two electricians so far, neither of them as come through with an appointment or even an estimate as to how much it will cost to fix the breaker box. We’ve asked at church for any electricians, we’ve looked in the phone book. We’ve made calls, but haven’t gotten anywhere – only two of the electricians even resulted in a successful contact attempt – one actually came to the house to look at the breaker box, then told us it was a mess and that he couldn’t get anyone on it for “a while” and that he would send us the estimate. Unless it’s come today, we haven’t gotten it yet.
The other “successful contact” is more a one-sided contact – I was able to send off an email request for an estimate on what fixing the breaker box will cost. They haven’t contacted me back yet, and I’m hoping they do so soon. I’d like to be able to get an estimate, make a payment arrangement if needed, and get the damn breaker box fixed so we can go home.
