So last year I opened (and closed) a business. I ordered biz cards from my Step Dad they were outrageously expensive considering I had a separate designer. Well I havent had the $$ to pay him I just havent the biz bombed, and we have been trying to pay everything back from it. Well I got served papers for small claims court over this debt for 300 more than the actual debt which is going to kill me. bringing my total to nearly a 1000 dollars for biz cards :cry: I have been sporadically in contact with the comp but not consistently because I have been so ashamed that I couldnt pay them. Now I have to either get a sitter (cant afford) or have DH miss work which I can not afford to go to court, I emailed them (dont currently have a phone trying to conserve money) so I wont even know if they get it or anything unless they email me back. What kills me is I sold my table last night and was going to pay them 100 today (what I sold it for) so I can pay them back :cry: I am so mad at myself for even trying to run a biz and being so irresponsible...I am really ashamed

So sorry Sam! I hope you can get everything figured out. So many of us are in tight financial situations, so we can all relate to the "no extra money" thing.

I hope it all can get resolved quickly and you can put it behind you.

Keep us updated.

I am so sorry Sam :hugs: Money is such a tight thing for so many right now. I hope that you can figure out a way to resolve this the easiest way possible. Keep your chin up and know that you aren't the only one having a difficult time right now. Hope it all works out.

I'm glad to hear they are willing to let you pay monthly instead of demanding all the money now.

So your dad got them for you and now because you didnt pay him back he's taking you to court? Thats just crappy IMO and its costing them more $$ to take you to court than you owe them!
