Utility Employee Asks to Speak With a Woman's Dead Father in Person, So She Brings in His Ashes

By Mustafa Gatollari

"I don't care if he is dead, put him on the phone."

That's what a utilities worker told reddit user PrincessG66 when she tried calling to cancel her father's service.

Sadly, on Father's Day 2012, her dad passed away. Princess was the de facto person in charge of wrapping up his affairs since she was his only child.

What happens next in her story is nothing short of a triumph.

Chances are if you've ever signed up with any subscription or repetitive bill payment, then you've seen how hard it can be to cancel your service.

Retro Fitness customers know exactly what I'm talking about. It's easier to get a decent score on the MCAT than to get out of a contract with them.

But I'd reckon that even people who signed up for a gym like that would be able to get out of their agreement if they happened to die.

Princess had no such luck with her father. She was told to get her dead father on the phone to cancel his plan.

So, she did them one better: she brought her father to speak with them in person.
