You know you've hit rock bottom when....

You know you've hit rock bottom when you are so desperate you setup a GOFUND-ME I don't know what else to do. I lost my job not too long ago then my wife lost her job. We have both just started new jobs but we are so behind on bills now that we might lose our house, wifes car, will most likely lose power/water(this Monday) and might be brought to court over a debt to our food vendor from our wedding(We set up a payment plan but now they decided to contact a lawyer to get the money now, wtf) Ontop of all this, we still have a small roof leak and our tub won't drain(I have tried a few things to try to fix it).

My wife and I are now both looking for part time jobs even though we just started new jobs. We have also been selling stuff we don't need but now it's so bad my wife has her wedding dress and wedding band up for sale. I told her not to do this but eh, didn't work. Ugh, sorry everybody for the post but I needed to vent a little. I've been with this club since the start and because of my father I LOVE this place and all of the friends I have made over the years. So if any of you can send a prayer our way we would be very greatful ! If you would like to check out our GoFund-Me page here is the link... https://www.gofundme.com/23dfte8s?ssid=730870769&pos=7 If this kind of thing is not allowed on here let me know and I will delete the link. I just don't know what else to do. This in NOT how we wanted to start our marriage.

Thank you Boston-Bull ! It means a lot to us...I am so happy to be apart of the Thunderbird community.

Thank's Ron, yeah, it's really bad here at the Connors household at the moment. Once we pay a few of these bills asap we should be ok. Just sucks how we both lost our jobs around the same time and now that we both started new jobs we have to wait for our first paychecks. We are trying everything we can that is for damn sure.

I'm in!

We all piss away money on dumb stuff, why not help a family in need.


Anybody else stepping up?



Good luck Chris.
