Yup, this Number one Ranter is at it AGAIN. I feel pity for them for they have to be HATED though But I just can't stand them, they're nightmares to every people in every society in this Civilized World! besides, it's one of the main reasons why People have to work hard in their employment and business life. it's rare that you find others enjoying their job. I strongly doubt any one is happy seeing a bill, that would be weird (e.g.the BILL is here weeei!) Though i shouldn't rant but we have to wait for next year for every body to start paying all in month. but that's because they different months where they pay for the first time. mom gave allowed them to afford higher advance rent pay so that they are given time to earn before they get to pay. sounds reasonable. but I still Hate BIlls Any one who likes Bills? i Suppose you like cockroach too? Have a nice day

You're on time. I was just contemplating on paying bills. Since I'm the one who practically lives in our home, it was considered my duty to attend to those envelopes and statements. Just last month, my mother had me to pay her credit card bills becuase she wasn't technically residing in our house here. I'm the one who's worried that she will get a bad credit rating and had to take some money out of my own account just to get the problem away. My mother reimburse me later on. The same goes for my brother. He gets his bill but I'm the one processing becuase he's busy. This month, he's own his own. Lastly, I had my aunt scrimping for two to three months before I get money for the bills. Thank God we already have a solution to that problem, at least for the time being. Won't it be better if things and services are free? So, we won't have to worry about these things? Then again, it will be a completely different scenario.

Hello Jeanne, That's probably why those services are there so that it would not only provide service to us and good jobs to the people. if they are free then they will go bankrupt and there won't be any more subscribers, leading to unemployment and deterioration of services. I only hope they would lower their rates. it's just too much tax and corruption i believed that lead to this.Have a nice day.

I like bills, dollar bills, in large denominations and quantities! I hate the other kinds of bills. And now that the mail is moving again, they're going to start showing up again. Not looking forward to that one. If we had no bills in our lives, then we'd all be rich, wouldn't we?

Good one there! Also I like bills when I see a lower billing amount than the previous bill! Another is the "Post No Bill" sign! But seriously, I don't hate the bills as much as I have to pay the bills! Imagine what I can buy if those bills were to be refunded back to me? Now LetranKnight just made a ranting discussion thread over here!

Lol, we could buy a lot of things if we got that money back. Bills are too high. Over $3000/year for car insurance, that would be enough to buy a decent used car here. Hydro, gas, water, far too much paid into these and we have a wood burning fireplace. Need to stock up wood for the winter so we can keep our heating bills lower, or at least try to.

Maybe you should use those bills of yours as alternative to using wood instead in burning your fireplace.

I don't think anyone like bills. We should all like to be responsible though. There are several ways to keep our bills down to a very bare minimum. One way to take stock of our health and be as healthy as we can. That way no medical bills. Also keeping away from the hellacious credit card. You can buy homes, take vacations and all the joys of life if you just stay away from them! Don't get into trouble with the law. Then you will have no court fees, lawyers fee, etc. And make goals for getting things paid. Don't over extend yourself. The list goes on and on. If you are careful you can stay away from any bills but monthly expenses which are inevidible.

Hello Celticeagle, Yeah, that's the essence of having bills, if we have rendered a service and pay for it, we must be responsible for paying it on time. that reminds me about my moms credit whom she's supposed to pay for the entire year so that she wouldn't have those kind of bills any more. i hope we get to pay ALL credit card bills so that we won't have to worry.

Having ongoing bills can be pretty stressful. Nice feeling when you get them all paid off.

I hate bills too, and cockroaches . But yeah bills make me sad and mad and every other negative emotions, especially my phone bill. It almost is as much as my pocket money for a month but I'm glad mom and dad pays for everything coz I'm still a student with no earnings. But things won't be the same forever

Hello thatgirl, Who would want them? unless they are a freak that wants cockroach for breakfast. well, that will change because you got even more earnings here inmylot if you become active here a little bit more. don't worry things are going to be good once you get the chance to pay them all. have a nice day.

I really think that the feeling of earning your own money and paying ofrfyour own bills is amazing. I've been looking for a job for a year now, still no luck. Anyway I hope I get one this summer, anyhow :)

Hi there Letran. I know people who must hate getting bills so much they never PAY them. Well, while I'm not crazy about bills I know they are a part of my life. I have my Internet phone. I get a LOT of usage out of it. Therefore I don't mind paying for something I enjoy. Another bill that is high is the grocery bill for my family. I spend over $800 in a month. I don't mind paying this because I provide healthy food for my family. I would love to have these things and keep my money too but that isn't the world we live in.

Hello PQ, $800 on grocery alone? damn! we could usually do grocery with the maximum of 200$ already but wow! eight hundred?! stuff there must be very expensive to boot. well, since it's part of your life now, I guess it does a lot of taking used to otherwise, we can have a house with candles in it instead. but we still need to pay for the mortgage, right? or taxes to that house. have a nice day.

Stuff isn't cheap at all. Milk is nearly $5 a gallon. The price of fuel is one thing that makes food cost so much at the store.. we have to absorb the cost of shipping it. A pan of Stouffer's Lasagna is nearly $12... we like that once a month at least.

Oh i so know the feeling. I actually get all my bills online then i seem to forget there due. That brings more stress. When i forget about the bills the company usually sends me a friendly pink papered reminder saying hey we are going to visit you soon and cut you off i need to be more organized!

I do pay them monthly they are just rude where I live and it is pay or buh bye! They are very impatient!

Hello Amanda, I usually get bills online too from my electric and phone provider but i rarely checked them. usually the mail gets my attention first before i get the chance to see it online. but there are moments where i check it online first before i get the notification. usually, the bill online is good for back up just in case the bill is missing or destroyed.

oh yeah bills are the devil! Always show up right when you find something you need or want and then you can't pay for it! What a pity. Though right now I have only one bill and wish I had more! What an odd thing to wish for, but that would mean Im out on my own, now wouldn't it? Yes it would so let's wish for more bills for me! provided I have the income to pay for it as well!

Hello Somecowgirl, Definitely evil and bad to our good good mood. I have five more bills that has not yet been paid since last month. i hope we get to pay it very very soon or we will be into trouble if we don't. I wouldn't wanna wish more if you asked me. anyways, have a nice day.

Well I hope you can get them paid for. More bills do make me nervous and upset, but the more I have the more I am on my own, if that makes any sense. Right now I am provided for, and that's all fine and dandy but doesn't help my mood at all!

Personally I wish this person named BILL would disappear and find someone else to bug. Also my UNCLE SAM. It is true we do have to work quite hard it seems to be able to make ends meet, and usually it is never enough and then you continue to have people hound you and expect more from you and are never satisfied. And when you fall behind the interest etc. is unreal as well. Wish there was something more we could do to get them all to just accept what we can afford for sure.

Hello Krause, With the financial crisis and the rise of oil prices, all we can do is keep on saving. soon we might not have guts to find a way to have money to have fun instead to pay it all on the bills. for now, we have means to pay off these bills and looking forward to next year. have a nice day

I think what you can't stand is the messenger about the bill. It's a piece of paper conveying what we already know. I hate sitting down to pay them, I hate having to double check my math, balance my checkbook, getting a letter from my bank that I have overdrawn because my math was wrong, having to heat and air condition my house, the shorter days of fall winter and spring, that turning on a light switch means I am spending money, I hate paying taxes, paying for water, recession, inflation, wage freezes, higher interest rates,economic downturn, people who look for things to worry about, create unnecessary drama, and of course sitting down with someone to enjoy some down time only to be led in a conversation about all the challenges and pitfalls they have in life.

Hello2004cqui, I believe there are some appliances that needed to be sacrifice when we are saving a lot of money from the bills. I remember having a lot because of the bills that we are getting. am glad it's just my mom and me who's staying at this house now compare before.

Well if you have bills it means that you have something. A homeless person does not have bills, but I bet they would love to be able to. So it's not fun to have to pay money, but money gets us things we want. If we really, truly hate bills enough, we can renounce most all of our possessions. It's really hard to do though, so people would rather work and pay bills. It's a choice. I don't want to complain for a choice I've made out of my own free will.
• Philippines
5 Jul 11
Hello Sketch, Sometimes Even though we have homeless people, you gotta envy them for being free and doing everything else free. they only have money only being asked by their alms. unfortunately, syndicates are taking advantage of this and making a modus operandi of their own. you're right rendering services is our free choice and bills are part of it.

Oh yes, plenty of bills at my house! I was watching The Secret the other day and it said that we should expect cheques in the post instead of bills in order to change the energy so we can receive more. I believe that to be true but when I walk to the letter box I can’t help wondering who wants money from me that I don’t have this time! Yep, I hate bills too and I am not partial to cockroaches either, yuk!

Hello Paula, Yeah, some mails are actually solicitations asking for donations. but who would wanna donate since people are seriously tightening their belts. even in this place, people rarely give solicitations because of the money that they need to save for the future.

I really do not like bills either. I dread it when I know that I am about to get a bill at some point soon. I don't like receiving them either. If I could avoid them, I certainly would, but unfortunately it's not as simple as that. Sadly, we must face the fact that we have bills and that we need to deal with them.
• Philippines
5 Jul 11
Hello dodo19, Well, we can just leave the house and let the bills pile up in the mail box. but definitely, it won't be the mail that's going after us but the authorities instead for not paying our dues. yeah, that's part of our lives here now in this time that we can't avoid them. but can only pay the services that we like to use.

Well, I do not like the bills that I have to pay. I rarely get to enjoy dollar bills, but when I have any denomination bill in my possession, I savor the short amount of time I will have the bills. I do know and like a couple of people named Bill, but those pesky bills that come in the mail, I just can't seem to get along and make friends with. I leave them in the mailbox for as long as I can hoping that they will go away, but they never do.
• Philippines
5 Jul 11
Hello mindym, Yeah, I agree, but on my end i had to keep them so that i can GET rid of them later :D. all of us don't like the bills, unless there's a guy named bill who you owned money with. the difference with me is that i kept checking on the mail box even if there was none. sadly, i see the bills inside the house and rarely see it in the mail box.

Bills equals debts. OMG, I don't think even rich people like bills as it is a constant reminder that we owe someone. I would prefer never to have one as long as I live but then that would be impossible as long as I am alive. lol
• Philippines
5 Jul 11
Hello Hardworkinggurl, That's the problem though, when the bill isn't paid on time it becomes a huge debt and when it's not paid for a long time, think about those horrible interest that the consumer is going to experience. well, unless we find a way to create our own internet (with our own satellite), power and fuel source, not to mention farming, food source, there's no way that we can get out of the bills and debts. that's the part of our economy.

Hello steph, There's no royalty when it becomes to bills, they are outcast hated and considered pathetic to the core. most specially if you don't get afford to be in trouble paying the bill but there are times we had to pay late because our income is late. Have a nice day.

I don't like bills and I don't hate them. Bills are signs of other's supplication of services to you which I know became already part of your life that you don't appreciate much. If you really hate bills, why not disconnect every services you enjoy yourself that others bill you every month? Just saying...
• Philippines
5 Jul 11
Hello xannex, Well, we go pay for their services rendered and i hate it when they increase the services rendered. some won't even reasoned out why, they have no idea that such business is really too much. That would be completely selfish if we go for illegal connection on all services. you have any idea what could be consequences to that? legal action and disconnection that other user that am benefitting myself from.

I HATE bills! I believe bills were made to be hated. Not only do these companies give me these bills, but then they hire some idiots over in India and other places that can NOT pronounce my name correctly. That makes me REALLY mad. There is something wrong with us listening to people butcher English while trying to collect money. How bout they hire us here in America so we could have a chance at paying bills?
• Philippines
5 Jul 11
Hello 13tyates, I am so sorry to hear that, guess some names are still not good enough for a call center agent to pronounce because if they are off shore, they are trained only to speak english. so trained that other names couldn't afford to be pronounce properly. I hope none of those are Filipino Agents. have a nice day. that's the companies prerogative.

what I really hate is the electric bill in our country, they charge us for so many things if you read the breakdown, like systems loss charge etc.. etc... you mean if their cables get stolen and stripped for copper, we have to pay that? What the f##$,it should just be basic electric bill and that's all, another one is our water bill, we use to have and pride ourselves that we have our own water works till it just dried up and they won't let Maynilad go in and supply the water instead! So the homeowners association had a deliberation with them the other day cause they continue to bill me 600 pesos for nothing, I jokingly told the meter reader that you should call yourself air works instead of water works cause nothing comes out of the tap except air!. I pay all the bills and keep a good record, my God, all of this could have bought me a small new house the past six or seven years

Hello Louievill, They are doing that same goes with the Oil Companies because we don't have a choice, though if the public wants to protest we can stop consuming them, just those days in EDSA Revolution. where businesses drop because people stop buying them. but now, were trapped and we can protest but this is just too much i supposed. I agree, we could have bought a house or we could have make a commercial space rent a long time ago with the bills that we pay here.

Hello Jaiho Sis, I don't mind BILL GATES paying all the bills for me since he named himself after it. unfortunately, my brother does the collecting as well, but i don't when is he going to sell them. probably not after like ten to twenty years of his life. probably by that time, the prices of old bills and coins would be more valuable. have a nice day.
