Today, I was entered into an online contest where they announce your name on the radio and if you call in within an hour they pay your bills for you. I'm unemployed, so I got really excited when they announced my name. My call wouldn't go through - I hadn't paid my phone bill and the line was disconnected. FML

Apparently you pay your internet bill. And really, in an hour you couldn't find someone with a cell phone or use a payphone? YDI.

#3: He shouldn't listen to me...but instead do exactly what I said he should have done? Interesting.

I agree with borrowing a phone, but I had internet almost 2 months after the bill was due, so he may not have paid. Internet usually takes longer to shut down than phone lines.

Are you from TUCSON???

a LOT of radio stations do that contest, don't have a coniption fit.

Obviously not if it says Connecticut at the top?

KRQQ does that, just sayin. And man, that really does suck, don't listen to #1. Lol, ask to borrow a phone, or run to a pay phone!!!

Show it anyway

he had already won, they just needed him to call in so he could give them his info.

You obviously didn't read the part that said that the radio called his name.

I'm sorry, that really sucks :( But yeah, srsly, why didn't you borrow a phone?

This is why we should all have Skype installed on our computers. But seriously, get a Job. Its sad that you have to rely on a rare opportunity to get your bills paid. LoL.

I dont think you can Skype a radio station..

And now you've learned a lesson.

I suspect some don't understand that certain bills are due at different times of the month-so it's totally possible that he may still have internet, but no phone. All the same-payphone, a neighbor? It seems like there had to be some way for you to get to a phone. Unfortunate, either way.
