When dealings with your bills, remember; everything is negotiable, even (or maybe even especially) utility bills. I have lived in the same place for, 20+ years with the same account so I find that I can negotiate payments for my phone, gas, electric, etc.
Always ask for a payment plan!

Lucky you. One month it was really a hardship to pay the entire electric bill and I went over and talked to them and asked if I could pay half then and the rest later in the month. They said no. I've lived here 45 years.
Editor's Note: There are sometimes laws that make it illegal to do this, especially during winter months. With the privatization of utilities in many states though, this may have changed in a lot of areas.
HI, YOU ARE VERY LUCKY! WE LIVE IN FLORIDA ,THERE IS NO EXCEPTIONS! NO PAYMENT, NO POWER!
