Squeal of Tires...

November 13th, 2008 at 08:10 am

....car alarm going off....knock on my door at 1am.

My car is gone. They came and picked it up. =(

We had no choice - but damn that hurts ones pride. I have never had anything like that happen before. They refused to work with us or help in anyway (which sucks because in today's economy, I am sure there are a ton of people behind).

We still have our Odyssey and our Ford F-150 (which is 10 years old and needs some engine work) - so we will survive.

I will never, ever, ever let this happen again.

    Yikes. So, it was repo'ed? Sorry to hear that.

    But why would the repo man knock on your door?

    I am so sorry. At least your have other vehicles to drive though. I have a question, Do you still have to pay the balance of what you owe? I have a friend at work who had her car repossessed and she still is responsible for the balance. Just wondering. Good luck with everything. I started getting serious about our finances last spring, had a bad couple of months in September/October and am trying to clean up my own mess.

    BA - I am not sure... do they normally not?
    I wonder if it was because the steering wheel was locked. There are marks on the pavement from where it was dragged. It wasn't a normal tow-truck, rather a heavy duty pickup, that grabbed the rear of the car.
    He said he wanted us to be able to get our stuff out (there was a car seat in there). We took our plates, and gave him the keys... seemed like he had to put it in neutral.

    I don't know...

    Pearl... I am sure we will. =(

    It's not ideal... but it was that or bankruptcy.

    I'm sorry to hear about this. But, you made it through, still have other transportation, are avoiding bankruptcy, and things can only get better from here.
