Got laid off in February. Can't seem to find work. Had three households dependent on me. Now, I don't know what to do for them. It isn't fair - I sacrificed so much for these people, now they abandon me just when I needed them most!!! All I ever did was give everything I had to take care of the ones I love!!! When I was still living in my old apartment complex, my car died (back in 2009). I was extremely busy with working two jobs, so I bought a new car and just let the old one sit there in the parking lot (dealership wouldn't let me trade it in, as the car was not working). Finally, the owners of the apartment complex, in their infinite desire to strain out a gnat while swallowing a camel, sent the complex's "courtesy officer" around to find ways of ticketing vehicles and otherwise drumming up new fees. Since I didn't renew the tag on the old car (it was, after all, dead), he slapped a ticket and a tow notice on it. I had to get rid of the car. Finally sold it to someone (more or less gave it away) for $145 (scrap value). However, the state of Alabama has been dragging its feet on getting me a replacement title so that I can give it to the new owner. As in, dragging its feet for the better part of two months. The guy I gave the car to has threatened to sue. He has gotten a ticket, and I'm afraid of getting slapped with more fines. I have no income - unemployment barely keeps my son and I in our new place. This isn't the only issue I have been having to deal with. There are the "revenue generation efforts" of alot of "moneyed interests" that seem to be constantly eyeballing what little I have left. It just seems like this massive vise is squeezing in on me. The one common theme is their greed. Groceries alone for my teenage son and I cost $100. When will enough be enough? Isn't it bad enough that I had to mortgage my soul to a company who ended up abandoning me? Or risking alienating my loved ones (and the resulting circuitous hoops and various rabbits I had to pull out of my a$$ w.r.t. my job to prevent that from happening)? These rich fools who we have been suckered into making our new "gods" strain to swallow a gnat and squeeze out a camel... Are they just going to keep going until they kill me? Or will actually cause me to do it to myself; these bloody men who use others as their proxies so their hands will not appear "dirty"?
