We've been in a position like that a time or two before (at one point the electric company hadn't read our meter for 9mos and when they figure it out we owed $1500 and they wanted it NOW). It sucks when you just don't have the disposable income.

I hope this passes quickly and you guys find a way to get through it. It is only money, but it sure would be nice if that was one thing we didn't have to worry about!
