the harder i work and make, the more I go in debt?
Ok, i know i haven't been here in a long while, but this is the best place i can think of to just let it all out, responses or no responses, i just need it to be said.
So, as many of you may remember, I own a business with my boyfriend. Well that business will be the friggin end of me if things continue the same way.
We were all financially set, i started working at a convenience store, I get overtime more often than not, and thank god for weekly paychecks. He works a real 9-5 bringing home most of the bacon.
on average, we make 2600 a month from personal jobs alone.
But then there's the business, for which, we are in a contract to do deliveries 3 days a week for a company that required a 26 foot box truck. We figured out our finances, all was well, it'd be tight, but we'd get it, we got the company to prepay so we could afford the deposit and first 2 payments. but then, they wanted an extra 1000 down payment, ok, still tight as hell for a while, but we can manage just lose some services for a little while, suffer a month..... and then the kicker, a month later, it broke down, fuel line was too close to the radiator, it burned through, spewed 80$ worth of diesel down route 13, cost 100 to get it fixed and during the down time we had to do multiple trips in our personal suv and spend another 80$ in gas just to go back and forth for the deliveries.
now, i'm starting a software QA job for a friend for great pay, only issue, due to all these, comcast shut us off, so now i have no internet except for tethering to my cellphone which will also be shut off in a day or two, that was the saving grace to get us back on track.
I've heard all about Karma, I was always crapped on as a kid by everyone else, I was the first person to give the last dollar in my pocket to someone who might need it more than me even if it was all i had for food, i started working at 10 years old, had 2 jobs by the time i was 16, spent all of my savings at 17 to keep my mother and step dad out of debt, continued to help my mother pay bills even after I moved out causing ME to go into debt, i now work 3 jobs, roughly 100 hours a week+, and still life just craps all over me.
what goes around comes around my ass, the more you give, the less you keep and the more you hurt in the future.
