Happy Apocalypse Eve!
A Quick Halloween Comic
Yes, there are other ways to pay the phone bill, but when the mail doesn't have time to get it there before it's due or if you simply prefer cash, this is your option. Oh, and the system to pay over the phone was irritating and the website simply didn't work(log in button didn't do anything). I wish AT&T had an office in Joplin where I could pay directly and maybe even talk directly to a representative instead of calling India(or wherever). When I switched to cable internet, I gained local customer support and MUCH faster internet than AT&T can provide. </added after feedback was received on 2 sites>

It took longer to decide what would be the first "actual" Ferret Williams comic than it took to create the comic, heh. I'm loving the switch to black and white.
I went through a TON of ideas I've collected over the years. This is one of those ideas that I simply couldn't use for the previous series because ALL bills will be paid electronically when those comics are set. Kenny would never have to WALK somewhere to pay a bill.

Now, if only I had remembered that I already had a comic sketched. I'm pretty sure I already have the next 3 comics already decided, so that might wait a couple more weeks.

Wait... what?

Why would you have to pay bills like that... that doesn't make a lick of sense.

Here in switzerland you get the phone-bill in a letter... just like any other bill... heat, electricity, oil, even the rent!

We get the bill in the mail, too, but to PAY it, the fastest and most convenient way is to go to one of these bill paying places(if you're paying with cash, at least). Sometimes you can pay at a grocery store, but AT&T didn't list any grocery stores as payment places.
Of course there's also automatic withdrawal, mailing in a check, paying with credit card over the phone or via their website... but cash was most convenient for us, especially if we're paying at the last minute, since the mail system can, albeit very rarely, take longer than expected. Their phone system was frustrating to pay with, and for some reason the login button on their website never worked, so I never used those options, either. And automatic withdrawal? Heh, only if you can guarantee that you'll have the money in your checking account when it's charged(checks, too). Thankfully, my bank balance is more predictable this decade than the previous one.

actually, here you can only pay bills at one type of place: either your local post office, which is very easy since there is one in every vilage and cities have multiple. Or your bank, but those charge money from you, so post office is the better choice.

altough automatic payment and all that jazz also exist here. Altough not everyone accepts credit cards.
