Bike Mike...

Aren't you one to judge everyone else about how they pay their bills. Do you pay your bills? I'll bet that you dont have the balls to put your credit report on the table. You have no idea what you are talking about. Go back to your barn and discuss how many beers you and your unemployed friends can afford to imbibe this weekend while you complain about how pathetic your lonely lives are! Get a Life... oh I forgot - you most likely can't afford one!

Sweet. I from now on I am not paying my electric or gas bill.
Apparently it's fine if I have 80K in the bank and still don't pay my bills.
I can't believe people are blaming the gas company for the foolish decisions of the parents in the house fire.
A Kerosene heater inside, with no cap on the fuel cell, hear flammable products (laundry), and the fault lies with the utility company.
Should we also sue the local grocery store for not giving free food off their shelves to every unemployed or homeless person? I mean, people can add a few layers of clothing if it's cold...but you gotta eat.
When does it stop? How long can the gas company go without getting paid, now that we have all agreed that they can't shut of the gas to deadbeats.
Probably the best idea then is for the utility companies to figure out how much the individual would pay in a year and then charge them that upfront for their years worth of usage. No upfront payment, no service. That way there would be no chance of the company losing any money and the consumer would know whether they would have service or not. Good idea huh.
