Can you pay my telephone bills. Can you pay my auto-mo-bills…
Well. That’s what I call an inspired bit of songwriting. Auto-mo-bills.
I saw Beyonce and company sing that song in Miami at a benefit concert for Haiti. Beyonce said, “Now don’t y’all get the wrong impression of what we trying to say in this heah song…”
(Remember when she used to have a thick country accent?)
Beyonce and company got booed. Badly.
Can you imagine?
Anyhoo. I always think of that song on the first of the month because that’s when I pay the bills.
I would love to hear from my dear readers on this one.
How/when do you pay your bills? Do you pay them all in one fell swoop? Sit down with all the bills and pay what you can or pay the full balance due for everything. Pay online? By phone? By mail with a check and a stamp?
I feel like I have a different method for every bill and it drives me crazy. I think it’s a testament to poor money planning. If I had it right,I’d have everything deducted automatically each month.
But. As we all know, I’m a freelancer. It’s feast or famine. Sometimes Comcast and Sprint have to wait until King, (sob!) pays me my money.
So though the bills do get paid, it’s always a frazzling experience.
How do you handle it?
