Where do I start. I’m asking for serious help with this month of October and the month of November. I moved to the Carolina’s, with my daughter, from Georgia. We’re originally from New York. I came without a job. I know, I know, but I went by the word of a friend that said that there were plenty of jobs here. So, I didn’t find a job right away. I lived off a couple thousand dollars that I’d had saved up. I also got a little help from a rental agency, Doordashing and giving blood. Still no job.
Finally after 5 mon. I got a low paying warehouse job, didn’t pay much, but I figured something is better than nothing so I better take it.
After 3 mon. I fell behind and my landlord started evictions. When I started working, I was paying rent to the courts on time, but I messed up royally cause I mixed up the trial date and missed the trial. Probably because I was so dam tired from working nights. After 7 mon. I got evicted. I begged my landlord to understand, that I mixed up the dates, maybe they could grant me a new lease. She said no and that they were instructed by their attornies that I had 30 days to move.
So I started looking for a new place. I went to go look at another complex, viewed the apartment, paid the administrative and application fee. Come to find out I was rejected due to the eviction that was now on my record. Never been through this before. So that’s when I found out how this works. I got some of my money back though not all.
So now I was scared that I wouldn’t be able to find anything for my daughter and I. I searched and finally found an apartment that would accept us. Something like a second chance with a lease lock payment added to my rent. But the apartment wouldn’t be available for 30 days. So I asked my friend if we could stay with her for that time. She agreed as long as I helped out around the house and stuff. We ended up only staying for 3 weeks, because the male family member that she had staying there, uncle or something, I thought, was looking at my daughter funny, so I got the hell out of there! We stayed in a hotel for the last week.
I used my income tax return to get into the new apartment. After the 30 days we moved into the new apartment and on the first day, 3 roaches came out as if to greet us! Also the microwave didn’t work! I immediately called management and told them, asked them if they could move me into another apartment. They said they had none available. I said how long do I have to rescind this contract. They said 72 hours. So I immediately went out to look for another place. Stopped at this complex, toured it, filled out the application, paid the fee, whatever, for Liberty to see if I could get approved. I thought it was going to go through since it did already at the other apartment. But no, It didn’t and I was out $60!
So I went back to my apartment complex and cursed out the guy who rented me the place, I said, “Thank you for renting me this fucked up apartment that I can’t get out of!” crying. Now I’m not answering the phone cause I’m pissed! Then the landlord leaves me a message, about how she’s so sorry, she wants to rectify it, she wants me to be happy in my place and for me to give her a call. So I call her, and now all of a sudden they have a 2 bedroom 2 bath apartment available that she’ll rent to me for the same price of the old one. And she reassures me that there are no roaches in this one and shocked that there were roaches in the first one.
I go to see the apartment and what do you know it has roaches too! I videotape this shit because no one would believe me that the second apartment would have roaches too! Then while I was visiting, a female neighbor comes out of her apartment with her daughter and tells me be careful around here they break into cars and I’ve had my apartment broken into 3 times. Wtf really, Omg, I cant, I cant, really!
So I show the video to my landlord. You should have seen her face, her eyes were crossing at how disgusting this shit was. Whatever. She agrees to do an aggressive treatment on the apartment to get rid of the roaches. I said ok, but I don’t want the second one you showed me, I want the first. Cause I was scared for the safety of my daughter and I. The first apartment has a storm door, which you have to go through first, before you can get to the main door. The second apartment doesn’t. So the exterminators come and did the aggressive treatment. Had to stay out of the apartment for atleast 3 hours after. Roaches gone.
Then I get into an accident on the highway by myself with the guard rail. It
was raining very heavily. I don’t know why in the Carolina’s that it just starts suddenly raining, pouring to where you have very little viability! So I lost control, my truck spun around and I slide like a quarter of a mile along the wire guard rail in the center of the highway. Stuck! This nice lady stops and asks me if I want her to call highway patrol and let’s me sit in her car while we wait. It was a very nasty day, raining really hard. I don’t know how mother nature expects anybody to drive in that shit! This lady was so nice and I was moved at how this level of kindness still exists. Definitely affected me. She had just had a baby and eventually had to leave cause her breasts were hurting and she had to pump. I thanked her over a thousand times and told her get home safe.
Went back in my truck still spinning the wheels trying to get out. State trooper comes after almost 2 hours, I guess there were a lot of accidents that evening. Gives me a ticket for the damage to the rail! Asks me if I’m alright, explain what happened and writes me a ticket for like $230 something or 60 something dollars. “We’ll no one else got in an accident, everyone else is driving fine, your going to have to pay for the damage.” Tow truck comes, tows the truck to my apartment. Luckily my Ford Explorer, it’s an old one, could still drive. It had to, I had no choice. Right tail light is cracked, truck is a little bit dented, but thank G** I’m alive, that’s what everybody tells me.
Then this heffer at work gets me fired! Right in the middle of the month where I’m living paycheck to paycheck. She had it in for me. She used to make a comment about everything I did. Nothing was ever right for her. Then one of my male coworkers tells me, that she always has a problem with one female here. I say oh great and it had to be me. Fell behind on my rent due to lack of funds. I got by for one month with the help of an agency and a church. Now I’m back in the hole again. My landlord already added a late fee and an eviction filing fee, we’re at the end of the month and next month November is almost already here. Oh and wait when I tried to help myself by Doordashing, cause I haven’t found a new job yet, and yes I’ve sent my resume everywhere, the wrong bank sucked up all my funds, now I’m broke and can’t even buy gas for my car.
See I have an account with Delta and an account with Bank of America. Delta went ahead and took it upon themselves to authorize transactions for Hulu, Netflix and YouTube Red when there wasn’t enough funds there and charged me $35 for each transaction and they did it twice!I no longer live in that state so they took it upon themselves to take advantage of me. If the funds are not there you shouldn’t be authorizing anything!
So I use my Bank of America account, they covered like gas and stuff, which I realized when I checked my account, leaving me in the hole for $37 and change. So I switched my Doordash account to BofA, this way once I made over $37 and some change I’d make enough gas money to really be able to work and keep all my money. I had a little gas and that’s what I used to Doordash. I figured that’s all I needed to make a little money. Well, I made $58.85. I thought that number was strange. But the money went into the Delta account where I owed more instead of the BofA account where I owed less. So Delta sucked it all up where I could get none. And now I have no money for gas to even drive to an interview. I had planned on taking my daughter trunk or treating with my friend and her kids, can’t even drive to her for that. I’m in a dam hole!
I’m on the phone with Doordash customer service demanding that they put back my money, in the right account, showing them proof that I switched the banking to BofA. They send you a confirmation email saying there’s been a change to your account without any banking information. Customer service says it went through, you have 2 accounts. I said I have one app and I changed it in the app successfully, your app glitches a lot to where I have to restart my phone, while Im dashing! Maybe then it reverted back to the old account by default! I dont know but I received confirmation and sent you proof! Oh you must of updated your banking account with the same bank. Why would I update my banking information with the same bank. That doesnt make any sense! There’s something seriously wrong with your app, but that’s not my fault! I’m sorry Ms. there’s nothing we can do about it because it went through. I’d have to call my bank to get the money back. So forget it cause Delta made it like I owed them and sucked it all up!
So here I am, tired, tired of s**t failing, don’t know what the hell to do. I’m tired of drowning, I want to swim, I want to float, whatever instead of this s**t and honestly I don’t really have a solution. I borrowed some money from my Dad which I used to keep the lights on and the Internet running, but that’s about to go out on Oct. 31, where the Internet is due. My cellphone is off due to non-payment but I can contact those in my contact list through WhatsApp.
Rent $3,340 Utilities $60.56 Internet $106.00
State Accident Damage $3619.85 Cellphone $124.00 Storage Unit $170.00
And I had the worst birthday ever this year on Oct. 17th where I was broke!
I’m seeking great financial help and gracious kindness. I’m so thankful and grateful to whatever I receive. Thank you all.
