[ Etiquette ] Open Question : Poll, yes or no it is your responsibility as an adult to pay your bills on time?

Seems kind of common sense, but the longer I work with the public, the more I realize it isn’t so common sense to a lot of people. Right now I work in insurance and…yes…you do have to pay to insure your car, house, business, etc. It’s not free. We all know this. I have clients who have had their insurance for months, even years, that forget to make a payment but somehow make it OUR problem and throw a fit if their policy has a late fee, cancel notice, or worse completely cancels due to non-pay. They’ll use every excuse in the book. “I didn’t get my bill in the mail so I didn’t pay” is always my favorite You should still know about when your bills are due. I pay around a dozen bills a month, I know when they are due. And if I am late…guess what? That’s MY problem. Not the company’s problem. Even if I didn’t get a bill. Even if I thought I already paid and turns out I didn’t. So, am I nuts here in assuming as adults we alone are responsible for paying our bills on time? Yes? No? Why is this such a complicated concept to some? **Obviously this doesn’t count for people who have had a situation they absolutely cannot help. I.e. in the hospital or family member death or illness. We always do our best to accommodate for those situations. But interesting enough, those are the people who actually don’t get upset at us. Go figure. Also, for those of you who have been in this boat of grown *** adults getting mad at you or your company for penalties of being late, I am curious to hear your stories. 🙂 Actually, to the anonymous answer, you have a point. But I have been in that predicament. Especially with credit cards because they’re not as important as food, gas, rent, electric…BUT I do not get mad at the company for my negligence. At the end of the day if I am going to own a car insurance is part of the deal.

[ Politics ] Open Question : Will Trump really release immigrants in sanctuary cities?

If he really follows through with this plan, then I am all for it! I’d rather live next door to immigrants than a confederate flag-waving, gun-toting Trump supporter any day! Trump might think he’s being vindictive, but he is really helping some of us. Immigrants are LESS LIKELY to commit crimes than US-born citizens!

[ Politics ] Open Question : Is Candace Owens a black white supremacist?

Its one thing to be out-spoken, brash, educated, and a freethinker. Its another to turn your back on your own people. Not only turn your back but support those who oppress your own people who are less fortunate than you. dear Republicans, you dont gain support from black folk, by promoting an Uncle Tom. You need to find a leader in the black community who speaks to the people in their language and can make them see your truth. Thats what the Dems do and how we got Obama. You dont need someone who says what you say…but just has a different skin tone than you. Its still the same crap you spew, that doesnt resonnate with black folk.
