Today, our cable, internet, and home phone got shut off because my mother-in-law decided that since we are moving, it was easier to not pay the bill rather than close the account. We're not moving for another month and the account was under my name. FML

For the record: I gave her money to pay the bill since she works right next door to the company and i never got the notice's since she's the one who always gets the mail since my husband and I work full time and go to school full time. and before anyone asks what she did with the money, she used it to help pay the deposit on the condo she just moved into...AGAIN FML!!

If it was under your name then why weren't you paying the bills?

that's why you shouldn't live with your mother in law.

No that's when ycanto up to the place and tell them what happened and DEMAND IT GET TURNED BACK ON because it's under your name like you said and show them proof that it is and you didn't turn it off! She can't turn it off YDI if you let this happen again

54: You obviously either don't know how billing works, or need to improve your reading comprehension.

I'm confused how cab she do that if it's in your name and she has no blood relation to you

I'm thinking because it WASN'T PAID.... not that she calle and had it cancelled, she just didn't pay it.

if I don't understand this fml does this mean I'm retarted

are you kidding me? slap that bitch.

that's why you shouldn't live with your mother in law.

Or suck it up and pay for it himself every other married person out there. Or live without cable TV for a month. If this is "FML" worthy, then somebody has a lot of growing up to do.

if you dont have internet, how did you write this FLM?

lol no doubt karate kick that biatch in the throat

when things are in your name, you should be living in your own place.

Unless the in-law is also moving along with the OP. If you're moving to the same city you can sometimes transfer your account information over to your new place. Take charge from now on. It's your credit at stake!

Since the bills are in OP's name, I'm guessing the mother-in-law lives with OP, not the other way around. Still, I wouldn't trust my family with my credit rating.

TIJD!!!! I've been waiting for you to reply to one of my comments just so I can express how happy I am to finally see you back on FML.(: Now, I was thinking the OP lived with the Mother-in Law and had things put in their name because the in-law can't establish credit on their own since they do stupid things like stop paying their bills.(:

Thanks Q. :D And of course, you could be right too. Either way, it sounds like it isn't the typical kid-mooching-off-parent situation. That's what I was trying to get at-- I just made a poor job of it.

Exactly, your responsible. Your name, your credit score.

When I still lived at home, I paid the cable/internet bill because that was something I needed for school. It was still under my mom's name, but I was the one paying it. Sometimes people arrange these things because it's easier than handing over the cash, depositing it, and then paying the bill. If the in-law said she was paying that bill (either because they live together and it is one of the bills she manages or because she was just helping them out), it IS her responsibility to pay the bill, or at least tell her daughter-in-law that she would no longer be doing so.

if its in your name you should be making sure its getting paid, I'm pretty sure they sent notices before shutting things off.


mother in laws are usually that way !!

I have to ask... is this really true or an old stereotype like 'girls can't throw'? Answers on a postage stamp.
