What's Something You Really Resent Paying For?

Right now, I would have to say dental bills.  Crowns and root canals especially!

Off hand I can't think of anything, I just wish everything cost a bit less.

Oh yes, dental work like crowns and root canals are very expensive.  But so important to care for the teeth. We need them working well for a lot of years.

 

I don't like the cable and phone bills.  Too much!

Every year I resent paying those property taxes --- which usually go up. The government seems to penalize us for owning a home -- so they keep adding extras ---- as though they want us to struggle paying it. 
What do they do with all the money they collect (unfairly) ---- waste it; pay expenses that shouldn't be paid with the property taxes --- pocket it??????

It's like our money falls into a deep hole - never to be seen again.

I agree with the exorbitant prices for dental work -- crowns, root canals, implants.  

 

I don't like spending money on cars, although I want the newest safety features.  Insurance costs are painful.

 

There's so little TV that I truly enjoy and hate paying the cable bill. Husband wants his sports channels though.

@Jubilant  Sales tax.  I live in a state without it, but I live on a state line where it is closer and easier to drive across the border and I pay sales tax there.  Other than that, I know that prices on everything will always be increasing.  Of course, I really dislike paying a high price for things that do not seem to be made very well.

The next time that I hear salt and ice together, it better be in a margarita!

Nothing.  I'm thankful to have money to pay my expenses, whatever they may be.
