ileen "Trixie" Sobieck was livid when she found out that power to her modest Hobart home at 735 Florist Drive had been cut because of failure to pay the bill. Scratching her blonde oily head she could not figure out why the
bill should not have been paid when in fact she is on a budget plan and the payment automatically comes out of her check book. She immediately turned to Associated Bank for answers blaming them for not allowing the necessary transfer from her checking
account. After extensive investigation the bank told her that Wisconsin Public Service had indeed gotten their money and it had come out on time every time.
Sobieck went on to then talk to Wisconsin Public Service and find out what had happened to the payment explaining that she had proof that her bill had been paid. Insisting that she was in arrears the company at first refused to restore power to the Sobieck estate. Sobieck admonished the customer service representative and explained that she just had a "go around" with the people at Festival Foods about doughnut holes and she was in no mood for their incompetence. She won out and power was restored along with an apology and a $100 credit on her bill.
