Whoah! There are so many people. What is the date today? Thinking about the date, if today is payday--not because it is already the 17th. Looking at the papers they are holding, i think of deadline of paying taxes. Most people love to hit the deadline. They don't know how to pay their bills or obligations before. Maybe they love that feeling of waiting in long line. Then hate that waiting afterwards, end up complaining or whining about the slow service. Sigh. Do you pay your bills or obligations ahead or wait for the deadline?

I do not wait for deadlines. As long as I have the money to pay, I will settle the charges instantly.

I pay them as soon as I have the money in the bank to pay them.

I try to pay them off as soon as I can since I tend to forget.

We try our best to pay some of the bills ahead of time but for others we usually wait until payday.

Some bills I pay ahead, others don't have convenient dates for paying ahead of time.

maybe to some, but some people, most Filipinos has that attitude of...it is not yet due or deadline, paying bills on the last day

I always pay ahead . What if the payment center didn't report it immediately the next day . Then , you could be tagged as late for a day .

I try to pay ahead. I like having a buffer zone. Lately I have been paying some bills at the deadline. Worrying about late fees causes me anxiety.

@BethieAnnie Precisely . If you are late for just a day , they penalize you right away on the next billing !

@SIMPLYD it is funny that it doesn't work the other way around. My insurance company double charged me last month, but they wouldn't let me charge them a fee!

Today is a Wednesday, nothing exciting like a pay day for me! Typically paydays are Friday's! But, when it comes to bills - I try to pay a week in advance to avoid any late charges there may be or interest!

I always pay my bills about a week early. When I pay my taxes, I pay especially pay them early. I don't want them to be a day late.

I write all of my bills out on my pay day and bill them the same day. I never want anything to be late.

paying bills after the deadline got surcharges, and it is not okay. i just don't know why some pay them during the deadline and whine about not being entertained when the day ends
