While some of you replied 'taxes', 'car insurance', and 'credit cards', overwhelmingly there's one bill that irks you the most.


The most popular answer? THE CABLE BILL! Boy, the majority of you are not fans of paying THAT!

And my husband would be RIGHT THERE WITH YOU. Every month he complains about it, and the mysterious 'fees' that sometimes come along with it. He's always on the phone with a company that rhymes with 'bomb blast' trying to cut a deal for our cut out some premium channels threatening, all the while, to cord cut and rely solely on streaming services.


It seems to be true. Cable bills can get out of control. Astronomical even. And when you try to eliminate landline or WiFi, most companies just tell you it's cheaper to keep all three than to just take cable TV alone.

What's your kryptonite?
