What the heck?! I'm late on my electric bill, because, the darn 100 degree days just did. us. in. Our darn bill is $359! And I guess I had a slow blogging month, or maybe I would do better to say, an unproductive blogging month. Things have just been so busy around this house, that it has been really hard to get much work done online! But that is a whole 'nother sack o' potatoes! (I need an office with a door, to lock the family out, so I can get some work done!)
What I'm really bitching about here, though, is that, for two weeks, I've been bustin' my rumpus trying to get all the money together for that stinkin' electric bill, among others....when I get this just loverly letter in the mail from them:
The electric service account at the above referenced address indicates a delinquent payment record. As a result, a deposit in the amount of $250.00 must be paid on this account.
See what I mean? "You can't pay, so pay us some more." That's intelligent. Gah.
This same thing happened to me at the bank a couple of years ago - it was just like credit cards, you're drowning, and in your dire struggle to get caught up - they push you back down under the water!
Life makes so much sense sometimes, doesn't it? Ugh! I am almost there - to the original bill amount, that is! But, I still don't have the total amount - I have until tomorrow. Wish me luck! And feel free to help out, if you'd like! All you have to do is click on my pretty Hippie Spelunker mug up there in the top left, and you will be taken to PayPal, where you can send me a buck or two, if you like. I only need $69 more, and I'm trying to avoid the pawn shop, but, I'm definitely not ruling that out - Mark's got lots of watches, maybe even some Luminox watches. He loves those darn dive watches, but, they might just pay a bill this month!
I will work better this month. I will work harder this month. I will work more this month.
Work better, work harder, work more.
My new mantra. Heh.
