I just recently was finally able to get a part-time job. I was also looking into other jobs to make more money as the first one is very part-time.
My car died suddenly last Sunday. It had definite work needed that I was getting to ASAP, but this was different. I had it towed and shop said the computer (ECM?) died. Said it would have to be replaced and programmed, which would cost $950.00. I don’t have anyone who is willing or able to help me. I am new to this area. I literally only have the money to cove the diagnostic that was done on my car. The auto shop is H&A Auto in Norristown, PA. I am in Media, PA.
I am going to lose my job.I cannot afford to pay for Uber/Cabs to get to and from work as I would end up spending all the money I made on those rides. Public transportation doesn’t go near the locations I work and the timing wouldn’t work. I cannot ride a bike (don’t have one) and also I have debilitating back and hip conditions (I have been managing wok with them as it wasn’t very physical in nature).
I had other employers who were interested in interviewing me, but even if I got one of the positions (ex. one at an animal shelter), most of what I would make would go to Uber/Cabs. Since I am losing my job, I am going to default on my Navient Loans and they are going to write them off to a collection agency. Now, if it was just about me, then I don’t care what hell they put me through. But, my mom is a co-signer on one of the loans, so she would be under threat, too. She has no money and is very sick.
I can’t even get to the store without getting a ride I have to pay for. I have exhausted all options that I know of. I am going to have to tell H&A Auto to send my car to the junk shop. I am at the end of myself. I don’t know what to do. I just wish that God would intervene and send someone to help me. I am not into drugs, I don’t drink, I don’t have kids–I barely exist. I did not ask for this. I have had and currently have many obstacles. This is just the final straw.
