GetHuman: So how would you sum up your experience for GetHuman's National Grid customer community? We'll censor any IDs, numbers, or codes and any inappropriate words here out of respect to the millions of other customers using this resource.
GetHuman-260663: Stuck on the phone for long periods of time. I have to freeze for a week at my apartment because they can't get to me for * days. After I already called to cancel them shutting off the gas because I wasn't leaving the apartment yet. Could home from work no call about them turning off the gas or anything... Find I have no heat... Really national grid... I tell them I have baseboard water heat and I need the gas turned back on. Sorry we can't help you for a week after I already called and canceled the appointment. For their mistake they said doesn't exist and I'm delillusionsal basically. National grid is terrible and I wish their was another service I could deal with in upstate New York. Hopefully my pipes don't burst... Thanks national grid for your help.
