    So I'm 19 and I have credit card debt. Recently, I was in an accident that caused my right ankle to break, and I dislocated my left kneecap, and fractured my left wrist. I had to quit my job because it was very physical and I had no way of completing my job. I made ends meet for 9 weeks by using money in my savings, selling things around my house, and putting things on my credit card. I tried to live as frugual as humanly possible, but I still ended up maxing out my $700 credit card. I finally could get another job, and all new employees don't get paid until after 4 weeks of being there... so I have no idea what I'm going to do for the next 3 weeks. My credit card bills is over a month late, and the company calls me multiple times a day, and I explain to them that I have EVERY intention to pay every dime off the card. I just don't know what to do. I blew through my college savings, so Idk what to do. I don't have anyone to turn to. Any advice? how do you cope with depression? I'm not looking for sympathy, just advice.

  • Should I rent all my life or buy a house?

    I rent which is 600 a month but my friends tell me I'm just throwing my money away. I love my apartment, the area, and my landlord let's me do whatever to the apartment except major renovations which I wouldn't do anyway.

    I rent which is 600 a month but my friends tell me I'm just throwing my money away. I love my apartment, the area, and my landlord let's me do whatever to the apartment except major renovations which I wouldn't do anyway. I've been here for 5 years, and already made it my own by painting and everything. Water and trash are included, I have great renters insurance and just love everything. I can't imagine leaving. I know in the long run you end up owning a home when buying, but what if I lose my job and can't pay the mortgage? Or get sick and can't work, or the house burns down? You never know! At least with renting I can just pick up and leave wherever and whenever until I can find another place. Plus committing to a 30 year mortgage payment freaks me out. I already have a 10 year student loan I'm still paying on. Idk, any other pros and cons I should know about? AND I dont have to do yard maintenance, always have my own parking, a pool I dont have to clean, walking distance to work and shopping, it's like my own little world! And if I ever decide to have kids I might consider buying or just renting a bigger place.

    I went to a party with my gf Friday night and I had her sleep over at my house. I hadn’t planned on her staying but we got dropped off to my house at 2 a.m. and had both drank and I really didn’t want to drive 30 minutes to drop her off. To be clear, we didn’t do anything. We just slept in the same bed. I dropped her off and when I got back my mom started yelling at me as soon as I got home. She said that it was trashy and started saying she was going to kick her out herself if it happened again. My dad wasn’t even mad about it and she was acting like that. I tried to ignore her but she didn’t stop until I left. Now she’s ignoring me and acting like I did something horrible. I’m 18 and am moving away come graduation, so this really seems petty. Should I tell her sorry to just smooth things over? I didn’t want to drive after drinking and my gf is not some hoe, so I don’t see anything wrong since I’m not a kid anymore.

  • Our president slept with a porn star. The president is supposed to be a good example to kids. How do right wing people feel about this?

    Best answer: The right wing didn't use logic when judging what is right and wrong. Their opinion on most things are laughable.

  • So I rented a premium car with hertz and they gave me an Avalon for the same price?

    So I had reserved an Infiniti or similar which came out to 80$/day and that’s on the premium car category aka “prestige” the Avalon is just a full size car and they wouldn’t adjust the price. Am I wrong to want to dispute it with my credit card company if they don’t adjust it?
