Would u be a little upset to?? adult content

Goodwill has a program to help single mothers. They told me they can pay my previous balance plus reg fee for daycare. I send in all the paperwork, I go and do the application, and I'm feeling good like yeah! I' finally going to get some help. I get the call today saying they can only pay half (1st while filling out the app I told them how much it was an they are like oh thats all - i dont know if that was sarcasim or what) and wanted me to come up with the rest. Like b**** if I couldn't pay the whole amount what makes u think I can pay all especially when I just tell you what happened?? I'm upset I got my hopes up. I should know to never trust a smiling face.

Would u be upset too?

    Sorry I was watching The Wedding Singer last night.

  • i would be upset specially after they said yes. thats why you always need papers signed with a signature before you get your hopes up so no one can change what they said

  • im pissed cause I dont have that money so I am out of the chance to do it. It's like damn you coulda told me there may be a portion we can not cover. She told me that it was no problem so that means its covered I just had to send info in.

  • Maybe it was an honest mistake on her part. Either way, I'd be grateful for any help at all since it's really no one's responsibility but mine, but maybe that's just me.
