~ You would NOT believe who showed up today! You guessed it Mr. Vincent. Yea the guy I talked about on Monday who kept signing in and disappearing. Yes! him! lol
When I got down stairs I asked him “Where were you going?! Why did you keep leaving?” to which he replied “Oh, I was going sit in my car”
smh, lmao… Got him all squared away and he’s good for at least 6months.
~ Got a phone call on my cell this morning… looked down saw the call said unavailable. Well I’m like most folks, I don’t answer “Unavailable/Unknown” calls. So I let it roll to voice mail. Well, then I see I have a message.
I call my voice mail and listen to one of my family members say
” Hey Trice, my phone is off and i’m calling from (says friends name)cell. I need $200 to pay my light bill. Please call me back today or my lights will be cut off”
Now normally I would swoop in a save the day, especially since I have a weekend trip to New Orleans planned. I just wouldn’t have gone and used that money to help them out. Well I called the hubby and was talking to him and he goes “is she working?” and I say “NO”. Then he goes “has she worked since the storm?” and I go “no”. Then he says “Isn’t FEMA still paying her rent?” and I go “Yes” and he says “did she get like $15,000 after the storm?” and i go “She sure did” and then he say “nah, we can’t help”.
And for a minute I felt kinda bad, because I ALWAYS help. Do whatever needs to be done and make it happen for them. But then I got to thinking. After Katrina all I got from FEMA was $2000.00 and since then I’ve only been out of work for 3months and I was still getting a check from my job in New Orleans during that time frame. I’ve scrimped and saved and budgeted and made due with what I had. We didn’t get the GREAT handouts from the government (not b/c we were too proud, but b/c they said no).
At this point I started getting a bit pissed, b/c several in my family have been milking the government and STIll have nothing to show for it. And yet you call me for help?!
I know my saying No, will result in my name being drug through the mud, but dammit get up and get a damn JOB! Be responsible for yourself.
