what the hell is going on?

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
I forgot to check my mail last night so when I dropped my dd off at school I checked it. I had a $400 phone bill, a $300 cable and internet bill, a $40 medical bill, and letter from my worker saying my FS are going down to $41????!!!!

What the hell? This is ridiculous. How the hell am I going to do all this and pay for food too? I'm crying right now because I cant believe this.

 Try not having anyone giving you anything. Try having to pay for all that and them some and your food. In other words. Cry me a river.. You are whining while you have 300 worth of cable and someone is giving you food. What the hell, lady. Grow up. Get your priorities straight.

Woah! I'm not trying to be rude, I promise. But who is supporting you and your children? Why dont you have a job?

Hug!



I understand! I have bills on top of bills piling up, also I need to move soon... And my bank account is -6.35



I have no money, no job, a kid and a baby on the way.



Life gets tough, but we are women, we will get through it!

 Maybe get rid of your Smartphone or let me guess? You deserve a four hundred dollar a month plan. I could not feel any less bad for you if I tried.

I agree completely with the what is in red.

I do not do cell phone contracts.

OP, if you need a cell phone (IE--it's a necessity), go with a provider that has a prepaid plan.

Quoting MaileysMommy:

Well to be honest with you if it were between my family eating and the contract I signed I would say to hell with the contract. It will effect your credit, but you can fix it and pay them off later. Sorry your going through this :(

Quoting Anonymous:

I signed a contract. Cant get out of it til this time next year!


Quoting MaileysMommy:

$400 Phone Bill?!?!?? I would say cut back on stuff, get different cheaper service for sure!!

 Why is your phone and cable bills so damn high? I think you need to look into cutting back. Sorry.
