My car got stolen along with my 2 kids’ car seats on 11/2/2023. I found myself in a difficult situation because it’s just me and my two kids and I had no way to take them to daycare so I could make it to work.
I didn’t have enough vacation to cover a week off so I had put in an emergency leave of absence because I didn’t have anyone to watch my kids at home while I work and I have no car seats to take them to daycare. My job denied my requests and said that transportation issues don’t fall under leave of absence requests and that I had to use my time. This back and forth put me in the negative with my time off work and so I made the decision to resign so that I’d be able to come back if anything.
Presently, I’m behind on a few bills and groceries are running out. I’m so scared and saddened by all of this. My insurance has covered a rental for me and I have claimed their car seats but I have to wait until all that is worked out to receive reimbursement for it.
I don’t even know if I’ll be able to afford my car and all my other bills once this is all done with because right now I’m jobless and currently looking online and locally. I keep thinking how will I afford to pay daycare to start a new job because I have no money. With Thanksgiving and Christmas around the corner, I don’t know how I’m going to make it.
I would appreciate anything and I’m so blessed to have found a site like this. Thanks for reading my story.
