Being nice is not worth it. I’m going to be a bitch from now on.
Where do I begin?
I let a friend borrow my car Saturday. The person was in an accident Monday with the car and I don’t have the car back to assess the damage. It’s “drivable” in their opinion. Well, their car is in my driveway waiting for them to fix it.
I haven’t heard from this person in the last 24 hours. When do I sever the friendship and report my car stolen?
My insurance premiums are going up because of their accident. I wasn’t even in the car. I was at work minding my own business.
Being nice has just gotten me no where.
I loaned $50 to my cousin. I didn’t remember I was running that tight and a check bounced. I have NEVER had a check bounce in my life. Well, this has set off a mess that I haven’t had time to deal with. The nasty letter I received today makes me want to write back here’s your $10 fee and here’s your damn club membership card. The letter threatened to have a warrant for my arrest issued!!! (We’re talking $60 here.)
These are just the latest two examples of where being nice has fucked me in the wrong ways. I am going to be a bitch from now on. No will be my answer to anything that has a potential to put me in jail.
Honestly, I had no idea that letting an insured driver borrow my car was something that could put me in jail. Live and learn, apparently the car is insured, not the driver. I am liable to the injury of body and property in the accident caused by someone else driving a car registered in my name. So, with that in mind, don’t let your car get stolen. AND NEVER LET ANYONE DRIVE YOUR CAR FOR ANY REASON, JUST SAY NO!
I have usually told my cousin no I didn’t have money to lend him. I should have said that same that week as I really didn’t. I don’t know what I was thinking. I wasn’t and that is a problem.
I’m so busy and so tired, I’m forgetting very important things. I work 3 jobs. I’m not able to leave my day job to do day time errands. I work 3 nights a week, I go straight from one job to the next with ZERO time to spare. When I say I have no time to conduct my own personal business, I’m not lying.
I need to find an end to this madness. Something has got to give and it can’t be my sanity.
