Ok so this month lots of things happened financially, good and bad. I paid off my car and got the title in my hand today. Too excited about that. No more car payments and I have a fairly decent car. I live in an apartment and its small but I like it. My rent is due on the 1st. I didnt pay it because I was catching up utility bills and i had two days less pay this month. I don't qualify for any programs or anything like this and will pay the rent at the end fo the month. I have almost always paid on time and am a good tenant. Things are getting ready to get better for me financially and I just need this landlord to hold on for just a short time more. Next month, I will not have the 360.00 car payment that I had before, and i am working extra this month at our yearly convention. I need to know how to approach the landlord, and ask him for more time. Am i really off base even asking him, or thinking that he might be able to wait. I have had friends that have owed thousands of dollars in rent and not been evicted. I feel like a heel not being able to pay, really seriously. If I had been able to I would have paid on time, it just wasnt possible. I think even if he would take me to court I would still have the money to pay when we did go to court. I don't want all of those costs though either. Ugh, i don't like being behind, I am sure no one does! It's stressful. On top of that both dogs have to go to the vet, I called them today and will get them in after I pay the rent for 260.00. Not complaining cause I love my dogs. He's been calling me all day and I have not answered because I am stumped at the conversation that we need to have. Ugh, I don't deal well with this type of thing. I just shut down. Any suggestions on what to say to this man, i have to answer him soon, or I will really make him mad. Do I just say I don't have it, and won't have it till the 31st. I guess I don't really have a very good reason as to not having it. I probably should not have paid the utility bills but being inthe dark didnt agree with me either.
