Bridge Out

July 30th, 2006 at 10:37 am

Normally, when the bridge is washed out, there are signs warning you. Someone for got to post the signs on my financial journey. I left for work Wednesday morning, and discovered my car was gone. Stolen! I also lost a day's pay dealing with that, as it takes time to fill out a police report, notify insurance, wait for them to get back to you, then find a rental car. So, I get everything taken care of, including me Smile, and go off to work Thursday in my rental car. Half way through the afternoon, I'm testing, and I get asked to go to the temp agency's office at the company I'm working at. When I get there, they inform me my contract is being terminated effective Friday, the next day. Nice! It's due to internal restructuring, not performance. Still blows. So I am currently with out car, and with out job. Oh, they found my car Saturday morning, two towns over, missing the hood, front bumper and two quarter panels. It still runs, but who knows what insurance is going to want to do. We'll see.

At least I've been saving and living below my means for the past year. I have my money for August already saved, plus about a month to two months expenses saved, depending on what I'll need to pull from. I also have a part time job lined up to start in the next week or so, so that might be some income coming in. I also am sending my resume out to a ton of people in the next week, so we shall see. It's just such a blow to have two major things happen at once. Ouch.

    To quote the Morton Salt slogan, "When it rains, it pours."

    Sorry to hear about the problems you're having. You must drive a popular car. Smile At least you have some savings to fall back on until things clear up.

    Good luck.
