Mildly bizarre

According to an insert in my phone bill, the phone company failed to meet four out of its thirteen performance targets during a time period spanning 2002-2003. Because of that, all customers are receiving a rebate of $2.73 on their September 2007 phone bill (yes, I've got a credit for that amount on my bill ... most astonishing in an era when one is more likely to be informed of newly invented back charges for something or other)

This is probably striking me as a little stranger than it normally would because I'm currently reading Rob "Red Dwarf" Grant's Incompetence and it's as if a little piece of the novel has reached out into my real life. :p
