all bills are not equal

Why is it that if I forget to pay the trash people and they send a past due notice I freak out and apologize all over the statement and send them extra months of payment in addition to last month and this month, but if the phone company sends me a past due notice I say, "deserved, fuckers"?

Because the trash company helps us get rid of our mistakes and the phone company helps us make them in the first place.

RW - I bow to your wisdom.

I have a credit card I got behind on, so I'm making payments...but they still call. Yesterday? I let my 2 year old granddaughter answer & talk to them, then hung it up.

heh.

Um...because you're mental? :)

Tug - That is a fantastic idea. If I ever have bill collectors calling me I'm putting the cats on the phone. Wait, wait, no, every time National Geographic calls I'm putting the next door neighbor's sassy two-year-old daughter on the line. That'll teach 'em to harass me.

Mr Fab - mln


You can thank Avi for teaching me how to flip you off with letters.

Because it's more of a hassle to haul your trash to the dump than to miss a few phone calls.

Plus, the people who haul your trash are probably a lot more imposing than the people send you late notices at the phone company.

An excellent point, Danny Boy.

(May I call you Danny Boy? Probably not. Oh well.)

WAIT -- you have to PAY the trashmen? MY GOODNESS the north collects on every fucking thing possible.

They GIVE us special trash barrels in Florida, primarily because they have a truck that lifts and dumps the barrels automatically. It's a one-man job here.
