I just got 3 letters today, 2 from the company I pay social charges for being self emplyed, saying I was late with my last payment which I wasn't and another from them saying that due to the lateness they are rupturing our agreement. Basically I pay every 3 months, about 400 Euros but at the end of last year I got an extra bill for 2000 Euros due to their error of miscalculating the last 3 years, so I have to pay it, they agreed I can pay 60 per month which I have been doing and still am but say that due to last normal payment being late, even though they have cashed the cheque, this breaks the agreement so are demanding 1,800 Euros!! The third letter is from a bailif they have passed it onto which says if I don't pay all of it in 24 hours they will break into my apartment and take value of my stuff to then collect and sell There is no way I can pay it all in one go and it is just my word against theirs, the French often don't understand reason. It doesn't make any sense, I am going to see them tomorrow morning but the bailif letter is dated 29th May so is already over 24 hours so I am worried they will come while I am out trying to sort it all. The main reason I am so upset is I am really worried they may let one of my 3 cats out as they come to the door to greet people. The one is a bit old and crazy and doesn't think before she does things so she could fall 4 floors down the stairwell. It may seem silly to worry but they are all I have and all that stops me from killing myself, they are the only reason I am here and my only company every day. For nearly 3 months I have ben trying to get over a knee operation, was stuck at home for 2 months and don't get paid as self employed so am into my overdraft and then got an infection caused by the surgery which isn't getting better and hurts so much to work and walk. I have put on so much weight as I haven't been able to do anything and have been really miserable. Just when I am back to work and my main season is starting I get these letters. I feel like I don't know why I bother, it is such an uphill struggle and I keep sliding back down feeling weaker each time. My actual work is great and I love it but this situation is stupid and I know that even if I can sort it tomorrow I will still be charged about 220 Euros for the bailif fee. What is the point?!
