Good lord! We got our electric bill the other day and it is over 400 dollars! What the hell are these people trying to do to us?! This is why the hubby and I don't have our own place...cause of the stupid electric company. We did have a place of our own, a little trailer on his FIL's land but we shared the electric and the bill got crazy expensive...plus the roof started to leak really bad when it rained.
Our bill is NEVER this high during the summer. The bills always want to go up during the winter. Now, I understand it goes up because we have the heaters running but it's freezing here in MS during the winter. Do they expect us to just wrap up in blankets and freeze? The only heater that is really on all the time is the one in mine and DH's room...and we need that on because we have a young infant.
This is really starting to piss me off. We have other bills and shit to pay! Plus, my FIL called and asked if he could pay some of it and they said that if he did pay all of it, they were going to turn our electricity off. And all I'm thinking is "those dirty bastards!" They had to understand, we are on a fixed budget and cannot afford for our electricity bill to keep being so high. It's like it goes up every month! On top of electricity, we have the water bill, garbage bill, internet, cable, and phone. We're still paying on our fridge, washer and dryer, and are in desperate need of a new car.
Me and the DH help out with groceries using our foodstamps but the price of grogeries is also going up. It seems like every month we are able to buy less and less. I've tried finding a job so I can help out but our car is crap and there is just on work where i live.
*takes a deep breath* Sorry, but I just felt like ranting.
