|Oh Lord. Good AND Bad news :D

Financial woes. Our rent went up at the end of our lease (only by 17 dollars), so I had to fill out a new direct withdrawl form. However it was not processed in time for May, so I had to pay May's rent with a money order. Not so bad...except that apparantly I have to CANCEL the direct withdrawl...which I did not, because I didn't know I had to...they gave me a paper that said 'your rent is going up so fill this out and hand it in' so I did... I paid the rent on the 30th of April, and on the 1st of May, F.J.M. Properties Inc. withdrew $675 from my $84 bank account, then returned the check thanks to non-sufficient funds. $37.50 in BANK non-sufficient funds fees later, I don't have enough to pay this month's bills. Then I find out that the stupid fucks at F.J.M properties also charge a NSF fee of $25!! AND it's my turn to buy groceries... I can hardly pay $78 worth of bills and buy $100 worth of groceries with $21 dollars... |
GOOD NEWS! :D I have two new jobs. I'm a cashier at Farm Boy, which is an Ottawa based grocery store. Unfortunately, I don't start until the 20th of May...which means my rent is coming off the ol' credit card this month, as my first pay won't be until June. I'm also not sure how long I will be there...not because I will want to leave, but because of the uniform policy...tattoos and piercings are out. I'm allowed to have a retainer in my eyebrow instead of removing and replacing it on breaks, since my hair covers it. That's the other problem though - my hair (no more blue :( ). Cashiers are supposed to tie back shoulder-length or longer hair, and mine is long enough that it can be tied. The problem lies in my ear piercings and neck tattoos...I'm only allowed 1 stud earring in each ear (I have 5/6 piercings in my left ear and 4 in my right), which I probably could remove for work, but if I tie back my hair, my tattoos are extremely visible. Uniform shirt covers the one on my chest. I'm really not complaining, I changed my appearance a lot to find a job as soon as possible, but I'm worried they might fire me over something I can't get rid of (my neck tattoos) even though I had them when they hired me, you know?
Other GOOD NEWS: I also have a job at Wal-Mart. I have no idea when I start, or what I do XD I'm fairly certain that I am a cashier, and I do the paperwork on friday. I know that Wal-Mart is pretty lax with their uniform policy in terms of piercings and tattoos, at least, based on what I've seen...when I was there last week for the interview, I saw a cashier with a bridge and lip piercings, and a sales guy with a HUGE tattoo creeping up his neck. I don't think I'll have a problem there =p
OTHER OTHER GOOD NEWS: In an effort to help me pay my bills this month, I've been selling stuff on HH and so far made enough to pay the internet bill... HUGE thanks to halocaustic for helping me out by buying something :D You're my hero this week! I'm also expecting a nice chunk of change sometime in the next week or so, my aunt's hairdresser wants me to make something geisha-esque for his granddaughter, to put on her wall. I REALLY hope that doesn't fall through.
