What is it about I have no money that they don't get? It's kinda funny. I told the lady at Visa today that I could not give her the full amount but I could give her $25. She says 'okay but can you give me the remaining amount in 3 days?' I said no. I explained that my husband had been out of work for a few weeks (laid off) and just got back to a new job at a much lower pay rate and I had to see how we were gonna get everything else paid. She says to me 'okay but I'll at least need half of the balance in 3 days.' I told her I would try to make another payment when my husband got his first check in 2 weeks. Get this. She says 'Well do you think you could go ahead and schedule your next payment?' Geez, I know it's there job to get the money but as my grandma used to say. 'You can't squeeze blood from a turnip.' Next time I won't be so nice. I'll give them what little I can and then hang up.

Wow that would drive me nuts!! I'm sorry you are in that situation. The group One Day of Peace is doing a theme on peace through personal finances. We've got lots of other groups helping out if you wanted to come and ask questions, get advice- or just vent.
I hope things turn out well for you and your family! Sounds like it's a bugger!
