COMMUNISM SUCKS, BUT CAPITALISM CAN SUCK TOO.

I cringe at every new month due to all the bills/payments that come in! Don't you?! ARGH!!! It's hard to have and keep basic comforts going!

It's a part of life/adult reality I know, but STILL! Time to pay for your living space, the cable, the water & power, the gas, the credit card, cell phone, and BLAH BLAH BLAH! I tend to be pretty responsible, but sometimes I forget the credit card bill which I charge my Sirius Satellite Radio and stagnant gym membership to, and GOD FORBID the finance/late charge! FREAKIN' EVIL CROOKS! ASSHOLES OF THE FIRST ORDER! And I never forget an appointment with my head doctor, but last month I did, and now I've been billed a ridiculous amount! EF UUUUUUUUU! I know the therapist had to wait for me and I never showed, but the next day I did leave a voice mail apologizing frankly and profusely, yet I still got smacked with this horrible cancellation fee. And at times, I have run out of money in my checking account, but only because I forget to transfer money into it, so I have gotten slapped with more facking fees! WHY YOU MALICIOUS GREEDY BASTARDS! They must think I shit money!

These companies stop at nothing to slap ya with late charges! I HATE IT! ABHOR IT! It's hard to keep track of it all with work, a social life, and days just flying by at the speed of light. I cannot imagine having kids! HOW WOULD I MANAGE THEN?! I need someone to perhaps manage my bills. Where's Brian Epstein when you need him?! Dead! UGH! And I ain't a Beatle!

But I know a guy who was a Beatle; a living legend/genius! In purchasing this, I suppose we're helping the Heather Mills moneygrubber fund and the continued encouragement of capitalism, but oh well! Here's just one of the 10,000 gifts I want for Xmas:

I came up with a bill paying calendar so I know when to pay what bill and out of which paycheck. It's the only way I can keep track of things.

That makes me sound incredibly organized, which I'm not. I just hate those fucking late fees!

I can't stand the fees either - I try to do the automated payments with everything I can. I know I'll forget because my memory is terrible so if can set it up to do it by itself I do. I just can't believe all the fees they tack on now. I also do some work with the MPC too and they told me about the interchange fees that go on every purchase you make with a card too and that one is even more ridiculous. Its why places have minimum purchases - so the store at least has a profit. It also causes the price to go up as well. Crazy...

It seems the less money you have, the more fees they pile on. I partake in auto-pay. SOme of the small bills come out of my checking, but most things (including monthly spending) all goes on one card. I only have to worry about 2 bills per month: rent and the CC.
Most banks also offer free onine bill pay. You can set up an autocharge to your credit card for whatever your minimum payment usually is (say $30) so you never get a late fee, than just make an additional payment as desired. I'm a pay-off-every-month kind of guy. The hate me, never get a fee or interest fee.

1. Stagnant gym pass? you really should keep those abs up?
2. Fire your shrink, psychiatry kills.
3. Moonlight as a porno star (sf valley is home to 95% of all porn produced) Swing that big dick of yours.
4. Mull of Kintrye is an awesome song.

I mostly agree with Bill. Stop bitching and sell that money maker of yours!
Seriously, I feel the same way, and I have no guarantee that I'll earn ANYTHING every month--2/3 of my income is completely independent of any one employer, so I always go through a few days of, "shit can I pay my bills this month", and that gets me very organized and conscious of how I am spending and saving...then miraculously, every month I do it! And have extra left over to fuck around with. I guess I should stop worrying.

Hey baby,
$ issues suck since they take our focus away from grander pursuits but it is a reality of life. I have a friend in financial trouble and the less he can pay the more fees they add on. What part of "I have no money" don't they understand? But, you seem to be doing better than he is. I wish I had lots of money to clear up everyone's bills.

The last two comments had me laughing. If you decide to go that route let me in on it. ;)

WAT- you are too cute to worry about such things! You need to find a nice rich boyfriend to take care of you. In the meantime, try growing a money tree.

in the meanitme, just blame your parents for everything!

I like all the people who advise you to do porn. That is hilarious! Porn is surely the answer.
