‘Til Automatic Bill-Pay Do We Part

Last weekend I was talking with people about the joys of automatic bill pay. It reminded me of a blog post I read a month ago about a man who had all of his bills on auto-pay. He passed away, but since his bills kept getting paid on time – no one found out for TWO YEARS.

It’s sad that the man had no one in his life – family, friends, neighbors, not even a landlord – that cared about him enough to check in on him. I guess that’s the downside of the convenience of auto-bill pay. At least the repo-man cares enough to stop in when you haven’t paid the bills.
