A NSD to celebrate and then...

February 11th, 2013 at 11:32 am

(was feeling so proud of myself) and the phone rang...

my well meaning family called to say:

"we found you a car - its a 2011 model, only 18,000 miles for $10,134... so if you put your $4000 in and we put $3000 in and you get $3000 finance then.... huh???????????????

And I flipped completely - I was so angry (but DD was still awake and of course listening to every word of the conversation) that I just became abrupt and said that we would talk in the morning.

And then I just sat here and cried... I would love to get finance so that I can get a nearly new car but I CAN'T because I am not credit worthy! The little dignity I had and all the debt I have paid off just faded into insignificance...

    Please don't think all your hard work is insignificant. You are working very hard and diligent to reach your goals and that is to be applauded. Remember how far you have come and don't let this incident steal that from you. Hold your head up high and keep your focus. There will be another car at another time that will be perfect. Your family meant well but just explain to them that at this time, that is not an option - no other explanation needed. Wishing you the best.
