I feel your pain! I moved into my grandparent's house after they passed away. Two years later, my grandfather got a jury duty notice. I called the number and started to explain that he had passed away. They wanted a copy of the death certificate! I finally just said "Trust me, he won't show up for jury duty" and hung up.Originally Posted by Bearcata;2484589;
The utilities were also all in his name, but I eventually got them changed into my name without a lot of hassle. Aside from the water - that was a royal nightmare. I moved out of my grandparent's house five years ago and I spent HOURS with the water/sewer company trying to explain that I had been the one paying the water bill for ten years and that I wanted to transfer the service to our new house. I ended up paying a deposit but that $60 was well worth not having to deal with the stupidity.
DirecTV has GREAT customer service. We actually don't dread calling them if we have a problem!
