    Exclamation 'Requesting' and 'to request' as a subject of a sentence

    Hi Here is my question:
    *Requesting payment for bills is frustrating.
    Can I say:
    *To request payment for bills is frustrating.

    Are they 100% the same? Can I use both?
    thanks!

    I'd use #1, but I'm not saying #2 is wrong.
