I am in a dire situation after having one roommate tragically killed on his motorcycle last week and having the other one decide to leave in the night due to an inability to pay rent. Now I am left shouldering the entire balance of rent which is now past due. I work full time as a cook trying to make ends meet while living in the extraordinarily expensive California Bay Area.
I pride myself on my work ethic and independence. I have never been in a situation like this before and am now desperate to make rent so that I do not end up homeless without the financial means to find a new apartment to rent, not to mention how difficult it would be to find a new living situation with an eviction on my record.
I am currently short 2000 dollars as I went ahead and paid the other household bills (power, water, garbage, internet, renters insurance) believing that my flighty roommate would be paying the majority of rent while I covered household bills and the remainder of rent. To have one roommate pass away tragically and the other leave and disappear within the span of a week is devastating to me. I am working as many hours as I can and have offered to pick up co-workers shifts but that does not provide me with the money I need right now. I am genuinely afraid that I will be living in my car with my 2 cats soon with no other options. I do not have any family to ask for help, nor do I have friends who make enough money to help me out even short term as living in the bay is so cutthroat. I do not own anything of significant value to sell( not even my car, it is a salvage title 97 carolla) and have exhausted all my options. If anyone is willing to help I would be grateful and willing to work out a repayment option if you so desire.
