Got paid this morning.
Checked the Bank of America website and realized that because our sitter deposited our checks yesterday, and the way B of A does withdrawals to maximize overdrafts, and the way the ATM does fees, that $10 I pulled out of the ATM at the local Sheetz yesterday morning is probably gonna end up costing us $119.
Checked the wife’s car on the way out to my truck…there’s steel belts showing through the sidewall on her left rear tire. So two new tires this weekend for Stubby. $100+ that we don’t have down the drain.
And the Durham Arts Council still hasn’t refunded the $160 they owe us for the booth fee of a show we didn’t get accepted to, and they’re late on it. But we don’t get to charge them late fees.
It just never ends. It just does not ever fucking end. Forget getting ahead…we can’t even get less behind. I am totally out of altitude, airspeed, and ideas. I feel like I’m just rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic watching the Atlantic get closer to the rail as the ship tilts. And I don’t know how to fix it.
