Telephone bill shock and personal responsibility

In the August, 2011 issue of Consumer Reports appeared an article titled “Stop phone-bill shock.” The article was about a family who was shocked to receive a telephone bill in the amount $263.00. The person was upset they were not warned by the telephone company they were about to or did go above their allotted minutes.

Hello, what ever happened to personal responsibility? It is YOUR responsibility to know if you are going over. As it is also YOUR responsibility to know if you have enough money in your checking account.

In 21st century America personal responsibility is an ancient term hidden in a dead language. Stop whining, stop blaming others for your actions or inactions. You are responsible for your ignorance and behavior.
