Murphy is Super Busy

January 11th, 2018 at 11:12 am

Murphy hit yet again.

After getting the brakes repaired, I realized my tooth is cracked. I'd eaten a piece of candy and thought it was that but no it's my tooth.

Then the SO and I went off to the basketball game Sunday. I'd told him weeks ago that I did not want to go, but he claimed that our friends purchased the tickets for him/us since they'd owed us a favor. I think deep down he really wanted to go.

Anyhow we go down to the game. Then we end up having dinner. I'd told him prior to leaving that I was not spending any money. Not for parking, anything. And I didn't.

So we are on our way home, he's driving and we stop for gas long story short, he hits another truck. Jumps out the car and guess what he has no license. I can't continue to live like this. The only good thing about this entire situation is that the driver of the other vehicle had no license either. Smh πŸ€¦πŸΎβ€β™‚οΈ

He kept apologizing, and I'm like enough already. We have talked about this crap since August and I just can't believe you have not taken care of it. Not only that, you're calling your mother now to bill clients so that you can repair the car. Are you serious? Why not just take over the business from her? What pisses me off is that he's saying the other driver hit him, if that's the case why is bumper damaged and not the front end? Who knows. My disinter looked at the car and said that the other drive hit us but can't do a thing because he has no license.

Then we come home and the cable box is out, I think lightening struck it. Can't call the cable company because once again he has not paid his portion of the cable bill and normally they want their money before any repairs. Smh
Long story short I was able to log in And schedule a maintenance call. The technician came out and we're all set.

In the meantime I did buy a little $15 antenna it works pretty good. I'll return it though for one of the better ones that was out of stock. Once I do that, I'm cutting the cable. He can pay for it if he wants.

Fast forward I wanted to walk out of my job yesterday. That place is a joke! I realize that I never want to be in a position in that I do not want to leave, well can't leave a job. I took another look at my budget. Cut some things and tomorrow I should be able to add $379 back to my EF. I'm annoyed because that money should be going to CC3 to pay it off but I have to beef up the EF since I used the money for breaks. Hopefully I'll have the Sprint check soon, and that should put me back at $1,000.

I got the first estimate of my car $800, I'm thinking they'll reduce if I pay cash who knows. I'm going to try two other places and then put it in the shop. I'm almost certain that this will be an expense in that I occur, SO never has his share for crap. Though he did say he would and so he should, pay for it. I'm not holding my breath.

Next month we go to court, hopefully we can get this house sold and behind us. I can pay off debt and then buy a small one bedroom condo that I can pay off in a few years, rent and then move into a two bedroom villa or something

    Darn! Brakes are fixed, what is the $800 repair estimate for again? If it is drivable and not a safety concern, it is likely not a rush to repair.

    Ouch! Yes, Murphy has been busy.

    SO sounds like a hot mess and the sooner you can get away from him, the better!

    Was there a police report filed??

    And the hits just keep on coming. I can't believe I'm saying this, however, have you considered moving out, staying with friends, anything to distance yourself from SO? I can't judge as I am not worthy, however, I really feel the focus placed on him is derailing your goals and sooner or later, will suck you back into a life of lackadaisical reactive response versus proactive growth. Just my opinion.

    Amber, there’s a big blessing in this whole situation. I’m assuming the car is yours and it’s insured by you. If SO had hit someone with a license, this could have been a whole lot worse. Does SO have car insurance with no license? If not, this could have had serious financial repercussions for you.

  6. creditcardfree Says:

    I reread this post. It sounds like the car SO was driving was your car. Not his. Thus you now have a repair in your future. Yes, he does owe you for this. I hope that he can get it figured out. But from now on you drive your own car!

  7. Out of the Dark Says:

    Amber, I just thought of a question you might ask your insurance agent. Does SO not having a valid drivers license prohibit coverage via "Uninsured Motorist"?

    Also, I would absolutely itemize any/all expenses, deductibles, time and travel to prepare and present a bill to SO. Establish repayment parameters no greater than 60 days and ensure he understands this will go to Small Claims court should he default or ignore. Just a thought.

  8. Amber Says:

    Thanks everyone, the police came out and made the recommendation not to file a report. Uninsured motorists would be covered but my premiums would drastically increase.

    The car is driveable but a site to look at. I'm in no rush to get it repaired. Saving a little at a time for it.
