I put my foot down with my wh yesterday. Felt good. But in the end we will lose out and it's pissing me off.
The in laws are still apart of the cell plan. The cell company can't take them off without charging a ton of fees including paying of their phones. The bill is HUGE! More than what we pay in rent. The company has been great reducing the bill and holding off suspending all of them but the fact is we just can't pay it right now.
I wanted to get my in laws attention so I suspended one of their phones. Sure enough wh got a text from the other telling (TELLING) him to call the cell company. Wh explained we can't pay this bill alone. They said they would help...crickets followed. I have blocked Internet so all they can do is text and call.
So yesterday the cell company informed me that unless a minimum payment was made the phone service would be suspended on all phones. I didn't expect to have service this morning.
I told wh who wasn't happy one bit but I told him food, gas and rent was more important and if his parents weren't going to get off their butts to help they would just have to deal with no phones like we will.
Priorities right!!! I wish I had the money up front to cancel, pay off and remove their phones. Then again we need a car so any money we would have would go towards that. The truck is great but it's hard on gas and without my parents dd would be stuck at school.
On Sunday wh dropped off a card for his mother on his way home from his overnight shift. She text him later saying thank you then said she missed the kids. Ya ok....
When wh told them about the phone bill they offered to help then nothing. when he told them we were losing the phones his mother gave him a sap story about how his dad ran out of gas and last night text him that his brother had another "spell" and was in hospital. suddenly a lot of communication. All they want is to appear nice so we keep their phones going...!
Frankly I'll be happy when the service is gone. Then maybe they'll fork over some damn money...
So if I disappear you'll all know why. It's sad that we will all lose but in the end might be the only way to get these people to wake up!
