The Online Bill Pay Blues

Updated on March 2, 2011

You've gotta love this day and age
Of techno-genius pay...
"For your own convenience Ma'am
just go online today...
Save yourself a further charge,
here is our web address...
w w w . com, then
'pay your bill' tab press."
Its as easy as it gets...
Oh yeah? Well I think not!
Just enter all your info there
but, I think it is a plot!
To avoid a further charge
Yes, pay on line and use
a debit or a credit card...
whichever one you choose...
Enter in those numbers
on their on-line bill pay site...
to spare yourself a buck or two
a good idea, right?
More times than not, there is a glitch,
and online bill pay fails...
you have wasted all that time
on a train that just derails...
leaving but two options
and both incur a charge...
try to go with phone pay or
to their home office barge.
It looks like smoke and mirrors,
this techno-genius ruse...
and on the first of every month
I sing the online bill pay blues!

      There's nothing more frustrating than trying to deal with an 'easy to use' website.

      I never pay a bill unless can feel grateful for what I have received. Paying a bill with resentment in my heart always attracts more bills. Kiss the bill and say thank you when you pay and you my friend will start to create the wealth your miserly thoughts have kept up to now at bay.

      Thank you for yet another great hub.

      Good Job, No_Clue! Even our local Gas and Electric is "Going Green"! How easy is it to get your information messed up with one "oops! I keyed in the wrong number". I do everything I can to not pay on line. The only time I felt I needed to pay on line, was to turn my cable back on in the middle of the night. But with all the "hackers" and viral hijackers, I really don't like going on line for paying bills at all. Thanks for stimulating us with such an important message.
