26. Some Moms are in other states..........
I once tried to pay my sister's gas and electric bill when they were both bad hurt in a car accident - her family is nearly 1000 miles away. The neighbor lady kept the kids and was picking up the mail and newspaper everyday for the first week until I could get the bus out there. The power company put a past due notice on the front door ON the due date with shut off 2 days later. This was in January and you know frozen pipes and all that. The utility said they would only take cash or cashier's check in payment because they could not take my credit card over the phone nor could I direct wire the funds. So I had to western union the money to the neighbor and she had to get there in person to pay. I spent hours talking to various people, none of whom seemed to have the authority to buy my sister more time due to her situation. What a huge pain in the butt.

Anyways, not picking up Mom, or not going yourself to pay the bill doesn't mean one is lazy in every case........
