Why is this happening to me? - Page 2

post #31 of 47
Good grief girl, I'm so sorry to hear about all of this. You've just had a bad run of it lately haven't you? I know how you're feeling. It seems like the worlds against us right now too. Keep your chin up. Everything always has a way of working out eventually. Not to mention...karma is a witch!!

Being in the same kind of business, I highly doubt this would work for her. Most of these places loan you money depending on your normal paychecks. When we finish a job, we get a check. There's no normalcy to it, therefore they won't loan us any money. Besides that point, they charge you a lot of extra money and I wouldn't advise anyone to use them. Its very easy to get caught up in a vicious cycle with those people.

I am glad they are going over the surveillance tapes...maybe someone will recognize the woman who bumped into you. I'm sending lots of good vibes!

The bank just called. Someone made a credit purchase for $256.98 around 8:45 last night. The bank says I have protection on my card but they're charging me a $35 fee for it
I just realized also that the gift card for $100 my Aunt sent for the kid's Christmas was in my wallet too...
I just want to crawl in a dark hole and hide now...OMG what am I going to do?

As long as it has not been used, they usually give you a receipt with the card number and they may be able to reissue - really depends on the store, but all hope is not lost!

OMG Alycia!!! I am so sorry that this is all happening to you.
Some people need to have the crap smacked out of them for doing this to hard working people.
I am still really leary of using my card WHEN I get the new one.

Why the heck are people so rotten around the holidays?
I mean this season is to celebrate happiness and family..the lord and peace for all the people in the world...
instead it turns into money hungry thieves, insane shoppers, and down right rotten behavior. Not to get all religious on you guys but it makes me sick that we celebrate Christs birthday by stealing from each other and wasting our money useless items for spoiled people when we should really be lending a helping hand to those who do not have much.

anyways...
I am soo sorry sweetie to hear about your problem with evil people.
I truly want the best for you and I hope someone above is looking out for you and helps your holiday get back on track.
(ps I think we've all been in a slump like this before...I know I have and dan has also been in your shoes. one year someone broke into his truck and stole all his gifts for his family on x-mas eve...he was miserable and out about $500)

Thanks everyone!
We asked my FIL to borrow some money. We're waiting to see if he says yes or no.. DH isn't really close to him and doesn't talk to him much but I'm keeping my finger's crossed that since we have never asked him for anything that he will..

Did you check with the store to make sure that no one found it and turned it in?

I would call the credit agencies and put a credit alert out as well cause you may get your identity stolen and that is hard to fix.

The Christmas season - by whatever name you call it, is a special time of year the world over, and has been since ancient times. Most faiths celebrate some holiday of great significance to them at this time. So, even in our difference, we all have this chance to celebrate, in a sense, together.

Anyway, we don't celebrate Christmas, or anyother holiday, by stealing from each other. Pshaw! What do you think of your fellow TCSers?

On the other hand, buying stuff for spoiled people (and extremely spoiled cats), that I think we might be guilty of.

At first my FIL said yes, and asked where to send a check, we emailed him back with address and he wrote back saying No... We're screwed

Sorry about everything that your facing right now. Even your friend that you were trying to help out is being witchy. It will get better!
