A good idea

Post by GingaDensetsuAleu »

Hey, you guys know that cutout paper doll of King that's in the back of book 3?
Well I just had myself the best idea ever.
If you know what I mean.

To make a copy of the King doll on magnet paper and have a magnetic King dress-up

I'm gonna do it, too, once I have a job again. I don't have money for fun things right now.

I am sure that King will really appreciate the effort you went to so that you could make his humiliation a lot more enjoyable for everybody else. I am gonna be interested in seeing how this turns out!

Well, it's not gonna be long. I accepted a position today. I gotta get caught up on bills, but I'll still have plenty of time because it's a part time position to start with, although I'll definitely look for it to become a full time position if possible. Especially at what they're paying, I'd love it to become full time.

It's gonna suck the first few weeks. First of all, it's a very physical job and I've gotten used to not much activity since I lost my previous job, and second of all it's gonna involve getting up at 3 AM whereas my previous job involved not going to bed until 1 AM. Complete opposite end of the shift spectrum.

Yeah I can see how that can be very difficult to get used to but I am sure you will be able to push through it! Once you get used to it then you will be able to get a handle on it!

Bravo for gainful employment! (Although starting at 3 AM does mute the enthusiasm of that cheer just a decoble or two.)

It pays $4/hour more than my old job so if I can grab a full time version, yay for that. That's so much money to spend on gas to get to work.

Oh trust me I can feel for you right there. When I take gas out of my paycheck in order to get to work I have only a fraction left of it which isn't really a whole lot of money after taxes.

I've also got a car payment and student loans and one credit card. It took longer than I thought to find a new job, so I'm gonna have to miss a payment on my student loans and probably be late on the car payment. Fortunately this new job is a pay every week type of job, so I should at least have a partial car payment on time. Partial is better than none.

I'm lucky enough to have my parents (read: my mother) stepping in to help me if I begin to fall behind and I need a way to catch up but I do have to pay her back double. In exchange she doesn't have the money I owe accrue interest! XD

My parents probably would help me if I asked, but given my brother has already "borrowed" $200K from them, I try not to ask them.

I am assuming that they will have no hope of ever getting that money back?

He hasn't paid a dime back, but he was gonna go on a cruise last year. If that gives you any idea.

Yeah that actually makes me see things pretty clearly honestly and I get it and what he's like. No offense, but in my opinion he is a complete scumbag for taking money from them. :/

Not so much for TAKING the money but for not even trying to pay it back. The money was to pay a lawyer to get his daughter back from his drug addict ex-wife, so he had a good reason to borrow it.

So he would use the leftover money to go on a cruise instead of you know, GIVING it back? Would have been nice if he wasn't gonna pay it all back for him to give what was left back.

Oh, no, it wasn't leftover, it was new money from his job. He just decided "let's go on a cruise instead of paying mom and dad back what we borrowed."

That is still kind of scummy. Unless they told him EXPLICITLY not to pay them back the money he got from them.

They told him explicitly it was a loan against my father's 401(K) and that he would need to pay it back.

Yeah that truly is just horrible then. I will be really surprised if he does pay it back.
