I'm confused between these two words.
what do they mean?
utilities bills and utility bills?
Would appreciate if someone could help, thanks.
btw, i have another question :P on the above sentense, do i use "... if someone can help" or "... if someone could help"? thanks.
thanks for the clarification :)
my understanding earlier was...
electricity is one utility
water is another utility ... etc
so, utilities are the combination electricity, water, gas, etc
bills because i have a lot of bills of each utility.
at the end, i'm trying to say i have a lot bills for each of the utilities
is the above wrong? :P
It's really helpful when you give your reasoning, as you have done; and when Charlie B. next logs on, it means he has a better understanding of your uncertainty and confusion in order to reply.
Other threaders, PLEASE NOTE.
However, when the bills begin to arrive, they are lumped together under the classification "utility bills" (not "utilities"). He might complain: "I can't believe how much I owe on utility bills this month...the phone company raised their rates, and it was hot last month and I had the air conditioning running all the time, so now my electric bill is enormous...!"
Ouisch, thanks a lot for the great explanation :)
