Just got 2500

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
And I'm not telling anyone about it. Not even dh. I had an escrow surplus. Just opened up the mail and bam...2500.

What would you do if you got 2500 unexpectedly?

Now why would such a small amount make me feel important, lol. I'll feel really important if my attorney is correct on the quote he gave me. Someone should ask that question. "What would you do with XXX,XXX,XXX.XXX amount of money". Now that would be fun, eh? Maybe if this was a PA post people like you wouldn't be bitching as much *shrugs*.

Quoting fallenangel_353:

No, it didn't I assure you. What I got from that is someone bragging about receiving money, and then trying to act like it didn't mean anything. Does it make you feel important or something?

Quoting Elyce225:

She asked what someone would do with unexpected money, no? We just got unexpected money, like I said, we put it into one of our accounts. Whew that went over your head, lol.

Quoting fallenangel_353:

What does that have anything in this world to do with having an escrow surplus? Um, nothing...

Quoting Elyce225:

My FIL just sent us a 2,000 dollar check just because. We don't think anything of it, it's really not a lot of money. We just threw it into an account.

Quoting wintermermaid:

If it's from escrow, I would be saving it because escrow always has a funny way of having a surplus one year and being short the next year.

Get everything for this baby and christmas. The rest would go to bills and rent so we can be ahead by the time we have this baby. My husband plans on taking a few weeks off when I have her.

I would go shop get my family new clothes. Put the rest to nice lighting for the house.
