I’ll first start with the fact that I live in a small town with little to no available public transportation and everything is spread far apart. My trusty little cheapo car decided to break while I was in between jobs and the only job that was immediately available to me within walking distance was a Domino’s. While I’m grateful that I make anything at all, it’s part time work that doesn’t pay well and I just barely cover the bare minimum bills and late fees to hold onto my vehicle and not go too far under in other debts, and any leftover money I pull out for myself(by sacrificing my phone for another month) goes to compensating people to give me rides to places I need to go that are too far for me to walk, and sometimes to eat. I hardly have anything to put aside to repair my car so that I can find work that pays a decent wage, but this is just the tip of the iceberg.
On top of all this, I’ve been staying with my parents who are also undergoing great financial woes and we’re all being forced out of our home by June 24th. Luckily my parents were able to plan a next move, but it’s a whole town away(way beyond walking distance) and my car still can’t move. Falling behind on some of my bills has resulted in hurting my credit so getting some form of loan or financial help is a no-go for me.
My vehicle still needs a proper diagnosis, but from what I was able to diagnose myself, it could be a bad bearing and/or an issue with a brake cable that’s locking my rear wheel off, and since my car’s been sitting since the end of February, my rear drum brakes are rusted enough to where you could stick your hand in there and crumble pieces of it off.
I’m not sure how much it would exactly cost, but even just $450 would probably be negotiable enough for me to get it towed and fully repair the main issue so I could at least get it moving again, help my parents out, and get my life back on track after months of struggling with an issue that I never thought I’d have to resort to asking for help with on the internet.
I know this is kind of a desperate thing to do, but I’m not really sure what other option I have. I do have a paypal link and I will be eternally grateful for any form of help at all. I’m also an artist who can sketch anything you’d like in return, just say the word! It’s the very least I can give back in exchange.
