One underrated issue I came up last night just forcing my self to fall asleep is why we pay phone bills.
We shouldn't pay anything to phone someone, we payed for the machine, we really shouldn't, while we have to pay monthly fee for just using it.

I know it costs to keep the service running, but if we're paying monthly fees, that should just be enough, for god's sake.

It costs the phone company money to give you the service therefore they must charge you money to use it.

How are they gonna maintain their hardware? Whos gonna run the company, whos gonna give you customer support...whos gonna pay company taxes. Above all, whos gonna pay the CEOs COOs Chairmen Presidents their salaries?

You.
If you try to correct me
I will become alot more wise and insightful than you can possibly imagine.

i bet you dont even pay a phone bill. prolly ur parents.

anyways. its because they have to keep their towers up and youre using their stuff. their towers, their service ect. its really not that big of a deal to be honest.
#11
I would agree if you said, "why do we pay so MUCH phone bills. Especially cell phone bills. FUck."
#12
Is there any other free, undeserved sh*t you'd like? Maybe we shouldn't pay for electricity either, or water, or internet, or gas. While we're at it, let's just make everything free because it doesn't cost ANYTHING to run any form of service, and no one needs to make a profit because people who run services don't need money just the rest of us.

Ok, that's it, I'm finished.
#15
We pay cause the give us a service, but anyway...they treat us like morrons cause they know were gonna end up paying anyway, so they do tend to overcharge us for everything
#16
ok, why do we pay SO MUCH bills?
Why do we have to pay 10 cents to speak to someone less than a minute?
That's just ****ing lame.

Gee, you're pretty ****ing astute. But for the record, I know "SO MUCH" isn't grammatically correct. I didn't intend it to be; I meant it to sound like conversational english, which is why I capitalized it, so don't orgasm at having found an error in my post. "So many" would be the grammatically correct version, but this would take away the focus put on the 'cost of the bills', i.e, the actual money we pay.


And you're not making your position clear you dumb tard.

So, you're saying, the actual costs of phone bills are perfectly reasonable, yet you don't understand WHY you pay them? What's your point?

Just like the guy last night who made a thread to tell everyone about his major revelation: Better quality products cost more than lower quality products.

This is the kind of thing you learn during primary school. The early years.

I say we ban TS and the other guy until they're both 13...

To me, you sound like some wanna-be anarchist. And, if you were a true anarchist, you would realize that calling someone a "mean" name that has to do with their political standing never helped anyone, or anything. Thank you.
