DH and I have been arguing lately about not having enough money to even pay the utilities. In fact, the groceries he bought for this week made us have an extra over charge. And it’s all because he decided to work with a JW elder who has bounced his paychecks more than 4 times. This time, because this man’s check bounced, we are overdrafted over $1000 and now I can’t even pay the water and electricity. We can’t pay for gas, and we have to pay our property taxes in November and in December, plus, we just got the hospital bill from his accident that happened in March. We are negative in our account. I don’t know what to do. I don’t get paid until Tuesday, but all of that is going to go onto covering the overdrafts.
I tried telling DH to please work for someone else. This person he works for is so inconsiderate. He owed us a check from 8 months ago, because according to him he had no money. Dh then decided to get a different job, and now that this man, supposedly had money, contacts him 2 wks ago, and DH quit his other job to go back to this JW man. So, now we’re overdrafted and the overdraft took the little money we had on my savings account, which is for me to pay my quaterly taxes.
I’m desperate. I put an ad on cragslist to rent one of our spare bedrooms, and I’ve gotten 1 response. A 20 yr old and a 25 yr couple who isn’t married but are willing to pay on time and be neat and help keep the house clean. I don’t want to have unmarried people living at my house. I have 2 spare bedrooms, that could be another option… Ahhhh! I’m just speaking nonsense. I don’t know what to do. This couple could help moneywise, but I couldn’t live w/myself if I allowed this type of immoral behavior in my own home.
I’m going crazy, I’m really stressed. I cannot ask my parents for money because my dad will say “I told you your DH cannot support you”. What can I do? I cannot publish an ad asking for a Christian person with good moral values. How can I rent a room in my house if I can’t ask for specifics?
Sorry I’m venting, I just need to get things off my chest, especially when DH won’t listen to me about not working for this man. I reminded him of how the checks bounced before, and he just ignored it. Now we have no money, he quit his other job, and we cannot even rent a room of our house.
