?...if you can't pay your bills why would you have cable?

Posted by   + Show Post
In response and as an honest inquiry. If you cannot pay your bills or you are struggling to pay them why would you have cable or internet?

Am I crazy here?

 Boredom is a terrible thing and some people cant afford to go out , like no transportation, or bad neighborhood that kids cant play outside. if i didnt have a car i would be staying inside a lot cuz its hot as hell outside.

 What's a hot spot ?

I can't pay my bills and I don't have cable... I have a hot spot that was given to me and the bill gets paid by the person who gave it to me... she got two units for the one account.  She has to pay for it anyway, so she gave us the extra one...we are very lucky.

I wouldn't. We've gone for years without before, only getting it b/c FIL moved in with us and had to have it. If it becomes necessary in the coming months, it will be the first thing to go.

I agree, but sometimes when you sign up for cable and stuff you have the money and arent worried. Then things get tight and you are on a contract and can't cancel because it costs a lot of money. That happend to me and my husband a couple of years ago. We don't have cable anymore, just internet! :)

At my job I deal with people paying bills. I see people with shut of notices for electric and gas but cable is all paid up.

I think that's because they know they can get bailed out on the necessary bills. I hate that shitty entitled attitude.

 Internet I can see. It's a good resource for searching for jobs, school, etc. Not everyone has the luxury of being able to use a library.
