    For a while, I was reading these posts and trying to understand exactly what they were saying. I kept thinking there had to be some little bit of rationality in there if I just read it a few times.

      What, you’re saying you don’t understand her “form of method” for paying—or not paying—her bills? And you don’t see how it’s a total WIN when they send a letter back saying, “invalid form of payment?” What kind of dum dum are you
