We're living in despair

Sir -- Last Monday, they came to cut off my electricity. Can I explain the sick feeling in my stomach -- the despair as I met the embarrassed look of the very kind gentleman they sent to do their work?

Have they time to listen as I briefly endeavour to explain our actions, for I cannot understand theirs.

Both I and my husband have lost jobs in the past two years, having worked all our lives. We have a mortgage and young children, like countless others.
