It's been a weird day on what should have been a payday...a happy day for me. Always get shit in writing. Did a job a month ago, sent invoice all seemed good until today when the money was not in my account. Called and they decided not to use my work and or pay for it.
So & so's kid was able to do it for them for free. The pettiness in me wants to put them on blast, bully them into paying what they owe me for the work I did but at the same time I can't help but get the feeling that NOT being able to pay was the issue
There's a tone, a shakiness you get in your voice when you owe money, when you don't have it and you feel embarrassed and that's what I recognized the minute my call was answered. It took the anger right of me because it's a tone I've had a lot over this last year
It's never a good feeling, to need, to owe & not have enough or anything at all. Call me soft, but all I could say is I understand & I do. It's just a sucky ass feeling. Everyone's doing the best they can, struggling, going w/o & having to choose between food or what bill to pay
It's just weird and I've been debating all day between whether I was being naive and projecting my own insecurities or if I was doing the grown up thing. At the same time, I'm upset because I'm struggling and I have bills to pay as well, I did the work, met the deadline...
