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.

What exactly do you need a smartphone AND internet for?  I think you could cut one of those out at least.

Yes and I cant change it without buying new older non smartphones.

You have a FOUR HUNDRED DOLLAR PHONE BILL??!!?!



Sometimes when I'm alone, I like to Google myself.

Wow, when we were eligible for PA we decided to not have PA and decided to drop phone and Internet until we got on our feet.

Also, there were lots of talk about how if Obama was reelected PA was going to be available to more people, but in lesser amounts.  Sorry?

Then I'm buying new phones just to lower my bill. So either way I still have to pay each bill I have, buy new cheaper non smartphones. And then lower our bill. Doesnt make sense.

I'm 31 weeks pregnant, I currently live with my ex (father of my child) but I need to move... He doesn't want me to leave but he's freaking crazy and I feel I need to leave before I have this baby.

I was working before I got pregnant, he wanted me to leave my job after we found out and as soon as I did he got really controlling.. Now I can't find a job because no one wants to hire a pregnant woman

As soon as I have her I will find a job.. Hopefully in a daycare so I won't have to be away from her.


I'll soon move out tho, my mom has a bedroom that my son myself and this baby can live in till I get on my feet

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



Quoting Anonymous:

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!

 The way it is going, it is going to be available to no people and help no one because of people like this OP. You do not deserve smart phones and cable and then have the taxpayers paying bills for you. That is not how the system is supposed to work. It is going to destroy the system for those who legitimately need it. Very sad.
