It’ s 6:41 AM…
…and my rent is due in about 3 hours. I am currently $80 short. It is an
extremely humbling experience to have to essentially e-panhandle, but I have
set my pride aside.
I am not on any assistance. I have no food stamps to save me, no SSI. I am a
military veteran who works full time in health care. I fell short on my rent
this month not because I am not hard working, but because I had the flu
during the holidays…which, for me that meant no money for missed sick days
and no money for holidays which we have to take off.
I am looking forward to getting back into the swing of things at work. I
have one daughter who is well taken care of, it is simply just not happen in
for me this month.
I need a total of $80 to make my rent. I would not be concerned about being
late if I paid to . leasing company, but my landlord is a single mother as
well an I feel I have let her down.
When I had my daughter, I knew it would be tough and that I was accepting a
huge responsibility. For anyone who can empathize, or who understand the
plight of a hard worker who still falls short in this economy, I entreat
You. I will pay your kindness forward. Thank you.
