Hi, my name is Sheila. I’ve ran into a bit of a situation that has dissolved my weekly check. I failed to pay my car insurance, no ones fault but my own. I made the decision to not pay it in order to keep food on the table and a roof over our head. It seemed like an OK decision at the time, I’m not one to burden anyone for assistance, besides this wasn’t the first time juggling monthly bills. Rob Peter to pay Paul is an occasional norm in my household. I’ve always seemed to manage, that is until now. I was on my way to a job interview for a position that would be a promotion, a position that would help with financial freedom. Unfortunately, I was so excited I failed to notice I was traveling at 52 in a 45, which seems petty… but speeding is a reson to get pulled … which I did. And as you may already know what happened next. Yes, a whole strand on unfortunate events were about to go down. Without proof of insurance, my car was towed and placed in impound, and that’s not all. Due to lapse of insurance, my tags had been canceled and my license had been suspended- all of which I was unaware of but now taking the responsibility of. I was able to get coverage on my vehicle using my everyday living funds and making a few sales on marketplace. So just when I thought things were looking up, is when the rug was ripped from underneath me. I went to get my car- (needed for transportation to and from work). Only to then find out the reality of the consequences caused by my poor decision of juggling bills. It now will cost me $240 for tow, and an additional $40 per day. And the car has been there since January 25th. As of now I’m looking at $520 to get my car back, which will allow me to continue working. One good thing of this horrible situation, my employer has been grateful for allowing me to use pto, otherwise an uber ride daily would’ve just added to the funds that are non existing at the moment. I hopeful that there is someone willing to help me out of this horrendous situation I’ve gotten myself into. I have had to swallow my pride for this one, it’s not easy to except failure and negligence caused by self. I’ve worked very hard to provide for my family, my work ethics speck volume. Somethings are learned the hard way and this is definitely one of those. I thank you for taking the time to read my need, and if I’m lucky enough to get the help needed through this process, I can guarantee I’ll be paying it forward in the future. May you have a blessed future.
