I have a new mission in life.
I am meant to help other people.
The only problem, I don’t know how.
I was always super good at talking kids off the edge of a cliff, diffusing really bad situations and that kind of thing. My heart is in helping kids in tough spots, I just don’t have a way to do it anymore. I have zero transportation and I wear out physically super fast, but I want to be useful somehow.
@ChrisWilson is the only Aussie I’ve ever heard sing with an accent and I love it.
Congratulations on some great music.
I mean, I understand I owe these people money. We went behind 30 days today. They were told about the bankruptcy. They’re, by law, supposed to contact our attorney prior to any recovery efforts. Now we have zero transportation.
It really sucks.
To get my disability benefits, I have to pay an attorney 25% of my back pay. That’s fine, I guess. Their fee is allowed by law. The repo company gets to charge me $45 for my license because the government allows them to.
What I’m learning is, if you’re poor, the government allows the vultures to come in and charge you money for your own stuff. Paying a lawyer is fine. Paying a guy to take my car and hold my stuff hostage is not.
I’m currently experiencing the poor tax.
We are going through bankruptcy, I alerted the credit union. They repossessed my one and only car last night with us being exactly 30 days behind. My wallet was in the car. Now I have to somehow get to the “agency” and pay them $45 to get my possessions back. The lawyer is getting the car back, eventually. My wife has to ask our kids to drive 20 miles out of their way to get to school.

What I’m trying to say, apparently as long as possible, is get off your ass and do something about the shit in your life.
Earlier this year I was complaining of sleeping 16 hours a day. Kind of undervalue with my health, but it sucked. Somehow (God) I got a touch of motivation. Now I exercise a little. Somehow that has turned into total motivation. I’m sleeping 8 hours, doing more chores. I’m about to start driving Uber to make a little scratch.
