{October 17, 2018}   Back to Divorce Court

Last Thursday I think it was I went up to check on housing help. I am not only worried about right now but in 6 months when my lease is up. I am not sure I can stay here if rent goes any higher. But there is no where cheaper to get. I am looking for better jobs so I do not need help but have to have a back-up plan. Anyway

On my way up there the guy from the car lot called me. He said something about he was going to call me the night before but didn’t get off until late and Starfishes ex roommate not showing up. Then he said he had cars he needed to find and get did I have help? I told him maybe I would check into it and see.

He said he had a lady that had 2 he needed to hit and a guy up north there he needed to findout about. I told him I was headed north then to take care of somethings. He said but you don’t have papers and key or help. I told him let me take care of business and I would track it down. If I found it i come get keys. I told him be looking for a driver and I be looking for help as well. He said okay.

I took care of what I needed to called and told him to give me the guys address and the info on what I was looking for. He text me the info. The guys job was on the same street I was on. I went by but he wasn’t there.

His house was about 10 minutes or less away. I went by did not see my truck I was looking for. He told me to call when I was by the house so I called and told him. He said to go knock on the door see if I could make contact but he wouldn’t answer the door.

There was another truck and car in the drive but he had a garage so it was probably in it. I went back by his job check the parking lot across the street. I had to pass the place on my way home. I seen a truck that could be it. I thought dang I should of check there before. I park in mall lot with ton of other cars and walk across the street to work if i was at risk of repo. Of course they are going to look at your job but who is going to look at the mall? It was wrong type of truck.

He told me to come to the lot that he gotten a few things taken care of. I got there we talked he was asking me what was going on and things. He said sorry not trying to pry into your personal matters, just trying to understand what is going on if I can help you in some way. You don’t have to answer. I just don’t really know much about you, you know this one, that one, worked here, know these but we never really have talked and your stressed, I can see difference from when you and starfish were here we talked and now. You have told me a little or made comments.

I told him a little bit and that I was working on going after them for child support. That I talk to the place the other week and I needed to take them papers. He asked why I hadn’t done it? I told him I was going to take it this week.

He wanted to know why I was waiting? I told him I work Friday and get my check then. If I had enough gas I was off Monday would be able to go then.

He said just go now get it over with. He said he owed me gas for going to them places, how much did he owe me. I said not much $5/$10. He said come on now, I said I was right by his job a block away and home was 5 minutes up the road, I’m not going to rip you off because it will benefit me. I didn’t even find it muchless get it. He said so you still done the job so what do I owe you? You can’t help it he wasn’t there with it.

I said whatever you give me is fine as long as I can make it to work I am good. We went inside he got money from the desk and gave me. Said go take care of that and get it off your list and things in motion. I got to the station he given me $30. I put it in gas and went to take care of business.

There was no one there so I was able to go right and talk to someone. They took all the info for father of the year then ask if he still lived on x street. It is his street so they have the right address.

Then the fact that he is not Little Bitties dad came up. They looked at all the papers I filed it is in both of them but the judge did not sign off saying it and make it part of the finale judgement. I use to have a paper but when I had to give info to the schools they needed it now they have lost it and I don’t have it.

They said they are going to turn it over to their judicial review team and see if they will go after RC and leave father of the year alone. Or they said if not then I am going to have to go to court and ask the judge to add it to the finale judgement.

Tonight I e-mailed the judge’s Judicial Assistant. Explain my divorce involved 4 kids and what the problem is. Hopfully they can fix it without me going back to court. The judge messed it up did not go over it not me. If they give me a problem I am going to tell them look he didn’t do this right either so lets just findout who I talk to about all the mess ups in it then and what can be done about it all if thats how you want to do things.

I can’t wait to get my truck back and not have to drive this van. It has so many little problems with it, it’s not even funny any more. The side door is messed up it was getting stuck closed or half open, we took it off and thought we had it fixed but for whatever reason half the time when I close it it don’t close right and sticks still. There is something wrong with the oil pressure when I have to stop for a light I have to double foot it or it drops to nothing then the check engine light comes on after so many times, at least I think that is why it comes one. It has this thing where if you park on a incline it don’t want to start and no one knows why. It has done that every since my dad got it. He just wanted something to get him from point a to pint b and for just him or just me would be fine but not for my kids to get around in all the time. The gas gauge also don’t work. I think this is the worst of all things that are wrong with it.

Well today I went to pick up my friend J and we were just driving around. I had to call the card people and see if they showed if I would get my money tonight or not. I was talking to them and not even thinking about anything. We turned off the main road onto this side street and the van died. I got it off the side and she said what we have a flat. I said nope worse we are out of gas. She was like what are we going to do. She has a broke ankle and I had the two little ones with us. I said yall are going to sit her I am going to walk up to the main road and go down the station we passed a little ways back. I walk all the way down there people flying by me left and right see her sitting there with the kids and not one person stopped to ask if we needed help. I get to the station and ask the guy if they sell gas cans because I don’t see them anywhere. He said yes I looked again he had none and nothing to give me to put gas in. I looked outside and seen this little old truck sitting there by the pump with a gas can sitting beside it. I turned around and looked around the store and seen a guy in line looked like he was waiting to pay for gas. I asked him if he had a gas can with him to see if it was his truck or not. He said yes. I told him I would give him $10 if I could get some gas and he could take me up to where the van was. He looked kind of funny at first he said ok. He started out the door. I told him I would be there in a minute I had to get money from the atm. I did that and got change from the guy in the store. I got out there he was pumping it but didn’t have a funnel or a spout on the can he brought. He said he used it to put gas in his other smaller cans. I went back in and found the paper funnels for oil and asked the guy if i could take one. I walked back out he was still putting gas in the can and his truck. We were standing there a minute, he looks at me and says your not going to kill me are you? I laughed I said no I just need to get this gas to the van so my kids aren’t sitting in the heat your not going to kill me are you? I said as long as you don’t try do anything to me we are good and laughed. He laughed we went on. We got to the van and had to find something to push the little flap out of the way on the tank he put seemed like a lot of gas in. I said that should get me to the station to get more. He said what’s it say when you start it. I said I don’t know because I guess it’s broke too. But it started so I told him I be ok to get that far. I started to take the funnel and things out he said wait let me put some more in it and dumped more in it. I took the funnel and things out put it in the van, he was behind his truck putting the can in. I walked back there to pay him. I was asking him if $15 was enough since I told him I give him $10 for helping me then the gas I figured $5 would get me to the station or $20 since he gave me a good amount of gas. He said get out of here and put that away. I said no I told you I would pay you to help me and you used your gas you have to get more. He said no I don’t want your money just get to the station and get gas in it so it don’t run out again. He said you going to turn around and go back out that way. I said no I’m going to go back around this way just in case since you showed me I can go that way. He said ok I’m going to follow you back to the station make sure you get there. He did he followed me until I turned into the station then turned around and went on. I was so thankful he had a can and was willing to help. I don’t know what I would have done if he hadn’t that’s for sure.
