Random acts of billing

Have you ever wondered why your CUC power bill is sometimes way off the usual mark? Think no more. CUC does randomly select a figure for your monthly bill at times when they did not read your power meter because (and they usually tell customers this) they couldn't get past your barking dog or dogs. Your next billing will be adjusted accordingly; that is, if the meter's eventually read.

One customer got the same reasoning from CUC and said, "But I don't have dogs at home!"

No, it means "Customers Use Candles"

The list of "new" agencies like CUC keeps getting longer.

It's like C-N-M-I, which can also stand for Currently Not Making Improvements.

Or E-M-O, Every Monday Off (I heard this from police officers; talk about rivalry), and so on...
