I hate being mean.

I just had to cut off 2 friends from their phones. We were on a family plan and after asking them repeatedly for some money to help with the bill/cut down on usage and getting no help in either area, I had to cut off their phones. I cannot afford 2! $600 phone bills in two months!!!
If there were extenuating circumstances then they could have made me aware of them. They had every chance to call, email, etc...to show they were willing to help.
At the 2nd $600 bill, I'm sorry, I don't care who you are, that is it. I have been carrying a $150+ bill for them for almost a year. Obviously, they did not want to take responsibility in this situation. I was not asking much. I was even willing to let the first $600 one go as long as they sent me something towards the bill... $5, 10, 20...I did not care as long as it was something. They chose not to. Nor did they call and tell me what is/was going on in their life that might cause them to not send a $5 bill.
I understand I have probably burned my bridges with those friends. This makes me very sad, but I cannot put up with stress like this for multiple months in a row. My budget is tight too. I was relying on that $400 (600-normal bill) to help pay other bills/expenses.

I know I am going to regret this. But I have to do what is necessary for my sanity.

Dana and Jen, if you are reading this, I am sorry, but after everything, I could not give another chance. I cannot afford to be overdrawn again. I wish I could stay friends, but I do understand if you choose to hate me because of this. If you want, you can reactivate the lines - contact AT&T for details.
