My story isn't as gut-wrenching as some here, but here it is.
First week of March. Week of Jury Duty and work only pays for first day.
Second week. Rushed to emergency room for kidney stone. Insurance won't cover doctor's bill and only a small percentage of the others. Could only afford some of the meds out of pocket. Missed more work.
Third week. Found passport (yay) in wash (boo). Completely ruined (more mad that the stamp ink faded than anything). Still have five more years on it.
This week. Speeding ticket (I'll cop to that) on my way to work. Already have points on license. Friend got caught elsewhere.
Looking on bright side (still have my limbs, no one has died, etc), but these things do dim the view.
