My car got towed last night at 11:10.
I need $300 to get it back.
So here’s the deets:
I live in a mobile home park with roommates. We have 3 cars and 2 parking spaces. Usually we just tetris all 3 cars into the allotted space. Now the roommates own the place, so they get the “real” parking spaces and I fit in across the end of the driveway.
I went out to a support group yesterday afternoon and when I got back, they were out. I parked on the side of the street in front of the house with plans to move the car later.
Roommates got home about 10:30. They had been grocery shopping so I helped bring the groceries in. We finished about 11:00. If we had been 5 minutes longer, we would have seen the tow truck.
“You’re car still needs to be moved,” said L. Well. I was in the middle of something and figured I had time. I knew the mobile home park had a parking curfew, but I thought it was midnight. And of course I got wrapped back up in what I was doing and forgot. Not that it matters, I was probably already towed by the time L reminded me.
So the place wants $300. I don’t have $300. I am scrambling for it even as I type this. I looked at an online personal loan but the interest rate is over 350% and the payments are greater than I can commit to. I looked into title loans but I drive a 98 so I can’t get enough money. I am calling in favors from friends and selling a corset on ebay. I’m going to see what else I can sell. I have some hats I’ve made and other little items. I’m really stressed.
Here is a link to the corset, if you’re interested:
