We have $14 and rent is due on Saturday.
This is the joyous news of the day. It all started when I went to check my bank account balance and discovered that the online banking system didn't recognize my account number. I figured there must be an outage (it happens alot) so I tried to get my balance via the phone...which still didn't recognize my account number. So I talked to a person who told me my bank account had been closed.
After talking to that person's supervisor, who sent me to another department, which sent me to another department, which continued the finger pointing to yet another department, no one could tell me why my account was closed. The closest explanation I've gotten was "there are a number of reasons why your account would be closed, but I don't want to speculate".
Why should they have to speculate?! They're the ones that closed it-presumably they have a reason. Right? RIGHT?
I can only think of two reasons that the account would have closed. I was in Check Systems five years ago, which prevented me from getting a bank account for a long time, but they opened the account knowing that and it's already been open for two months. The other reason I can think of would be that something went wrong with the check I deposited from my employer (you know the work at home thing I've been doing) last Friday. Still, I've already deposited one check from them and everything went through fine. And the check from them is written on the same bank I go through-so you would think that if there was a problem they wouldn't have cashed it to begin with. Right?
I am at a total loss. We make "too much" to get rent assistance and our families are as (un)helpful as they've always been. The bank did manage to say that they would mail us whatever was left in our account after fees for our unknown transgression-in SIXTY DAYS. I just don't see how this is going to work out and I'm pretty sure my head is going to explode.
I'm just trying to keep my head above water. I'm trying to remember that so many people are living in a lot worse situations right now. I'm trying to remember that I am blessed with three beautiful children and a loving husband and we all have an amazing home life. Personally, when it comes to love, I am blessed to overflowing.
If only love really was all you need.
