[Ed. – Wooden utility poles have addresses?]
An elderly New York woman has reportedly received power bills of as much as $2000 a month addressed to the pole in front of her exact street address.
Maria Sprizzo, 83, of Staten Island, told the Staten Island Advance on Monday the letters from Con Edison utility company began coming to her home in early 2018, and she continues to receive bills at a near-monthly basis as well as termination notices.
“I’m reading this thing, and it says that I owe them $2,000,” Sprizzo told Staten Island Advance. “I called (the utility company) to no avail. Then I read it carefully and I noticed that the letter was addressed to the pole — a wooden pole in front of my house. You don’t write to a pole, if you’re normal.”
Despite her constant calls to stop sending the mail, Sprizzo said letters kept coming. Each letter is addressed to Charter Communications with her exact address followed by the word “pole.” The latest piece of mail came on February 22.
