Zombie story part 1: Something beginning with the letter C
The calls are nearly constant. Creditors calling wanting their cash. All day long.
Just about every 45 to 50 minutes the phone rings and it’s a new creditor or at least a different creditor, that wants to know where their cash is.
Sir, do you know that you are three months overdue on your credit card payment?
I am aware, yes, thank you for the reminder.
Sir, do you know that you are two months behind on your car payment?
Yes, he answers everyone with a variation of “I am aware that I am behind on my payments. I just don’t have the money to pay you at this point. I will make a payment as soon as I can.”
It felt like he just wanted to put that on a recording, just so he could hit play the next time somebody called, asking for their money.
Maybe not a recording per se, but at least record that as his outgoing message on his voicemail.
He thought that something like “Hello I am aware that I have not paid you in a number of months, I will make a payment as soon as I can, I just can’t make a payment right now. Please leave a message after the tone, just be aware, that I will likely delete the message without listening to it.”
That way he figured, but at least they be able to say that they made contact with him, even though they probably wouldn’t really be able to say that.
So, here he is. Sitting in his car, which he hasn’t paid for in two months, wondering how long until they come and take it? Wondering, if they take it, how will I get to work?
Zombie story part 1:
The joys of someone in debt. There is a certain joy that comes with being in debt and knowing that you are completely screwed.
Or so he thought.
That’s what he was thinking about when he was driving to work that very next day.
That’s when his phone rang, it was his friend Bill.
Bill was a guy that always had money, but never seemed to have a job.
In passing, he mentions to Bill that he needs to make some more money. Bill asks how much money?
That’s how the whole thing started, just one day one guy in debt, driving to work, talking to his friend who always seemed to have money.
