The phones just not ringing! Well, that’s not entirely accurate, it’s just not ringing with anyone asking for tiling quotes. Most calls are from credit card companies or the bank since June because I have barely enough tiling work coming in the pay the rent & utilities, let alone credit card bills. Today I literally laughed down the phone at someone from Mint as they warned me my credit history is about to be affected for the next 6 years. I’m just too worried about paying for the roof over my head to give a toss about my credit history! I am seriously thinking of declaring bankruptcy though.
If my credit history is going to be crap for the next 6 years anyway then bankruptcy might be the best option! At the rate I’m going it will be a simple case of bankruptcy or risk a stress related heart attack or stroke. At least I tried for 5 years to do the right thing & pay off my debt. Thanks to the recession I’m now buggered financially but still not on any kind of state benefits. Maybe I should have just claimed bankruptcy when I got back to England in 2004. I could have spent the last 5 years saving a deposit for a house instead of constantly trying to break even each month.
As far as getting tiling work goes I been sat on my backside all this week & at present it’s looking like the same scenario next week too. I could join one of the tradesmen websites but I don’t have any money to pay for the quotes. I dropped my price om my last quote but still didn’t get the job because my quote was low compared to the other tilers quotes they got. Talk about feeling like you just cant win!
