Amanda P (Arkansas):
I got behind on my bills due to being out of work for some time. And although I have put efforts into trying to get caught up, I’m still behind, and a couple bills (rent and water) are way overdue. My rent is a month behind…i still owe December’s rent (normally $600 but $640 maybe with all the late fees). I paid November’s rent last week. My water ($77) has a disconnection pending now for the past due which I have an extension on til Dec 23rd but that’s the very last day to pay is what the water company told me. And there is also a current amount due as well by Dec 26th. Everything else, I either made payment arrangements on or was able to pay, so it’s just my rent and water that are urgent. Just realized my landlord didn’t ever give me a new lease for this year, but I have my original lease that I got when i moved in, and I’ll upload it. I have proof that I’ve been sending them payments for rent as well. I can ask them for a new updated lease if necessary. Anyway, I was counting on working this weekend (it pays time and a half), but they cut me from the schedule because they had too many staff. But those hours would have made my next paycheck decent enough to pay on rent at least. But unfortunately I will now have a tiny check next Friday, and my bank account is currently at $4. I don’t have anyone like family or friends to ask for help because everyone is struggling themselves. I will go into more detail in the box below about what caused the issue with work and how everything got behind.
