The bills keep coming
Ah the bills, I believe one of the most hated words in the English language is also the one that causes people much anxiety, anger, depression, you name the symptom and people will have it one way or the other. And it is not just that the Americans are prone to it, all over the world and every religion is stuck with it. So this hatred of bills is universal and equally despised. But if you are going to use something, then the bills will certainly be due in the future. Bills can be of all amounts and equally and surely all causes anger in the person getting it. And it is not the bills stop coming just because you are sick, unemployed, in an accident, gone away on vacation or in some way absent from your house, the bills would not stop even if you pray since it is the debt you owe to somebody else. So as part of the human race, I hate bills too but realize that if I have used something I will definitely be getting a bill for it (unless I pay in cash and avoid this scenario). Even after paying some bills, there is no respite since some other bills pop up sometime in a month and then you have scramble for whatever money you have in your budget to pay the bills. The biggest bill you can see is your mortgage on the house and then from there it is car loans, credit card debts, utilities and groceries. And the month goes so fast that before you are done with paying bills for your current month, out comes another month and the bill paying cycle begins anew. The bills are all season until you are no longer in this world.
