Dear Government,

Dear Government,
All eyes are on the Detroit Automakers request for a multi-billion dollar bailout. I realize this is a huge request, with many long-term consequences either way. However, at this moment I’m requesting another type of bailout in the Detroit region. Help my struggling family for the next month. I just paid my bills- car payment, credit card payment, 2 student loan payments, electricity, daycare, dentist, tithing, car insurance, union dues, internet, cell phone, etc – and the following will just have to wait till the next paycheck. (Which is a terrible way to feel in this holiday season).

If you choose to comply, this is what we need:

$368.17 for student loan #3 (I was able to pay the first 2)
$420.18 for student loan #4
$351.74 for student loan #5
$224.25 for car loan
$51.07 for gas bill (yes, we keep our apartment at a 61 degrees in the winter so our bill is affordable)

Total bailout: $1415.41

And if you’re feeling extra generous, feel free to send $1105 to pay for our moving truck, $500 for our security deposit, and enough to cover our first and last month’s rent. And for good measure, some groceries and a fat gas card for all my traveling.

See! Much easier than $15 billion!

    I feel your pain!!! Moving expenses suck, and so do student loans!

    I feel for you Nicole. Once you get to Atlanta you will be warmer and hopefully have a better heating bill. They’re snowfall is nothing compared to Detroit. Are you guys moving yourself or a company doing it for you? You can save a lot by doing it yourself..if you have the time.

    I hear ya sister – a mortgage, cell phones, loans, utilities, insurance and now a baby – I could use a little bailout thrown my way too 😉

    ..I honestly believe that somehow we are STILL paying for our first “pilot move” in 2001 .. (we have moved 4 more times since than) … and I KNOW we will be forever paying back the flight school loans … and dont get me started on the unions “fair share” that gets taken out of the paychecks … I really dont want a bailout but more of a taxation holiday from income taxes!!!
