theres nothing we can do since our apt only allows comcast connections. and we dont have the funds to move anytime soon. like the saying goes, stuck like a rock in a hard place

I know the feeling.

Our choices are only Charter or Frontier Communications for DSL

Both suck !

But I get AT&t prepaid wireless it's the only thing that pics up at my apartment and work so pretty happy with it.

You need to get a better job. One that's full time and pays more.

You make a little over $400 every two weeks?

40 hours a week would put you below minimum wage. Are your wages being garnished?

I make about $30k a year and bring home a little over $800 every two weeks. I have a number of payroll deductions, one for health insurance and one for a loan I'm paying off.

I'm miserable, but you're worse off than I am ghost. Good luck to you. I hope you find something better.

I make only $9 an hour and my hours vary.

Sometimes I can get 40hrs a week while I am only part time at 24 hrs

This past week was able to get 40 hours. Last pay check was able to pick up 64 hrs for two weeks and looks like it will be the same for this round as well.

Sounds like you got time to have a second job.....look for something that may turn into a better full time job. UPS is hiring like crazy here and they start out pretty high.

I read your posts yesterday. My thoughts are with you. Maybe get a second job?

70 dollars for cellphone!..i only pay 22 dollars for my tracfone, its decent -i mean if you dont mind 3G

It's because I get the High Speed unlimited data plan on my prepaid.
I use my mobile now instead of cable. ( SMART PHONE AS A MODEM / WIFI HOTSPOT ) I don't have TV or Cable any more was cheaper this way. I can take my internet with me to work lol. Plus I have a phone with it.

Also saves me an extra $70.00 not having to pay for CABLE

America is ridiculously expensive for the basics compared to the uk , i am retired and at home all day in a cold climate and my electricity/ gas are less than 50 $ a month plus my broadband and phoneline and a sim deal are 27 $ a month the sim has unlimited min/text and the broadband is 15gb a month , that does me fine if i want to download more i can jump onto the free wifi and go unlimited on a spare computer with a 144mb speed and i got a nokia lately 4g for less than 30 $ brand new in the box . so i feel for you folks in the USA the American dream is a nightmare for most

I sincerely hope you are on food stamps. You are the working poor….you should go about getting any help, grants, freebies as possible. The wealthy do it all time...not food stamps, but everything else. They have tax exempt Foundations…yet you, the little guy, pay tax everywhere.

Some programs have help with your power bill or heating bills. Don't buy clothes, go to Good Will or Salvation Army. In fact, you might think about contacting Salvation Army for another part time job. Ask them what's available. Some charities may offer jobs, I'd contact them all and ask what's available job-wise, along with any free help.

Many years ago I donated an old car (that was in tip-top condition), just needed a paint job, to the Salvation Army. I hope they gave it to someone like you.

Good luck.

The food stamps and grants idea has been floated to the Ghost a few times.. I forget what his excuse was for not doing it.. I think it was too hard or something, but you'd have to ask him.

It really sucks when only two bills $219.00 takes half your paycheck for two weeks

:(

Tissue

Paid $147.00 power bill
Paid my cell phone bill $70.04 ( I get my fast internet connection also via my cell phone why it's high got the unlimited fast prepaid data plan no contract ) because I don't have cable internet.

Cell phone is better option and it cuts out an additional $70.00 for cable.


Of course you have to have power so had to pay that freaking bill as well. Decided to pay the balance off while I could.

California has the highest cost of electric utility bills. My bill was 50.00 for electric and 8 dollars natural gas total of 58 dollars. This with a desk top computer mostly on all the time and all LED light bulbs through out the house. Electric stove and refrigerator. Water bill of 90 dollars, garbage bill of 75 dollars and they want me to clean out the food stuff from the plastic by washing it out so it can be recycled.

Because he doesn't want to work a 40 hour week. Try to improve himself. If he dies who going to inherit his bills? chuckle
