I WAS DYING.
My breaking point came in October 2009. Stressed and depressed over finances, I began only paying for necessities. The man with a master plan was thinking again; I felt that I would get through that situation like I did the rest. By my wits. I felt that I could outthink and outlast any bullshit financial situation.
I chose to breathe and just move to the next line of attack. Until I got served, that is.
My wages were going to be garnished to the tune of 25% for a few months, or roughly $350 a check. I began to brace myself for life without a car because with a garnishment, there would be no way I could afford to keep my Focus.
A week after getting notice of the judgement however, I got laid off.
Can’t garnish an unemployment check, so my attitude was fuck you and your attorney, payday loan company…
