College tuition.

Flipcard, the cheapest bill (actually paid by my parents) was a phone bill for 0.16$(CA). which they sent to us on paper in the mail, probably costing them more than it was worth.

Life is funny.

I live in Italy: everything has very super high bills, that's why almost everyone goes abroad nowadays (and they are adding new bills, too).

Anyway, the worst bill I have ever paid was for a pretty expensive GIFT I received from an American friend of mine. He sent me a graphic tablet, but I had to pay bills in order to receive it from official Italian mail. I knew I had to pay to let the gift pass the borders, but I MYSELF didn't expect I had to pay a percentual (don't remember how much in %) of the value of the gift- My friend from the other side of the world didn't expect it either, so he wrote the true value of the gift itself on the package.
The gift had a value of 400 $ and I had to pay 78 EUROS (107 usd) to the fucking Italian government (+ only 5 euros for the European Union) to actually receive it!!! I felt really very bad for this surprise, it seems that everything doesn't work and DON't WANT to work here. Taxes are everywhere, also on foreign gifts. Not to encount that Italian mail offices suck a lot: I receive the package after 5 months and my friend started to worry it got lost on its way... In less words: the service costs as much as it sucks. A LOT.
I have won a contest here on Crunchyroll and I am pretty worried about my prize to arrive here safe. I am also thinking that it's highly possible I will have to pay morethan 15 euros to receive it at my home. It really sucks all of this.

Hmmm my hospital bill once was I think $3,500. Oh and there is also paying off my student loan which right now is at like $5,500.

Other than that... I dunno I pile up all my bills into one category when draining my bank account monthly... it all adds up to about $450 a month I think right now.

$500 dollars for phone bill- during the time I had family emergencies. Texting calling non stop with family members.
I'll be a graduate soon so those bills will be up and piling up.
<-- broke college student!!!

student loan payments are now due...$198 as minimum paymets....plus another debt with $156.36 to pay each month...oh yeah, since health insurance payments start in march at $176 a month, that needs to get paid as well...and since I want to pay off my debt and student loans rather fast, I had to budget myself for the year again >.<

most I paid in one go was for my tuition for my community college which came up to $700+ for one semester.....

That sucks but i'm not surprised really, I mean I don't know what your particular situation was but my twin brother had to pay $3000 in IV's alone for a skin infection he had awhile back. Hospitals rip you off big time.

I was in the hospital for a couple of days. They do, they rip you off and then screw you over but they are like an stereotypical abusive lover. They know, no matter how many times they beat you, you'll be back eventually.

Well from what my mom tells me ( she works for a hospital under Ohio Health) is that before Obama care their hospital would charge people more if they were insured to off set those who couldn't/ wouldn't pay (illegals and the unemployed).

electric bill $65? sounds dreamlike.

Our electric bill here in germany is near $190 monthly. Gas as well. As if that isn't enough for electricity, the years of settlement is like $1400 since 2 years

Aside from that my Credit Card bill last month was $1500

Before that the biggest investition was my new computer and various tools at around $5000.

Family with 7 people + car = 8.

Everybody want's something...everything is expensive...and getting more expensive...

I should rob a bank

Most expensive bill is probably a $600 electricity bill I got once.
Most expensive purchase with my own money so far is definitely my car which came in at 355,000. Norwegian Kroner or $57,000. USD, yes cars are extremely expensive here.

Inherited property that I then sold, but cars are stupid expensive in Norway, you could probably get the exact same car for $20k or under in the US.
