I'm sure you've all noticed the $12 price tag on the latest CoW pack.
Not only that but the fact that I have the gall to charge that much for one pic less than normal, much like Pack #4 before it. Just like then, I'm in a fix, only it's much larger than last time. I'm going to get in a lot of trouble to saying this, but she is making no effort to help me so I am going to make no effort to protect her.
When I was a teenager, my mother bullied me into getting a credit card for her under my name. If I didn't do so, I would have to deal with being threatened to get thrown out of the house, so I had no choice but to comply. She cancelled the card and never paid the debt back. Years later, the collection agencies came after me because while the card was hers, it was under my name. I was taken to court over this and had to force her to own up to her debt.
I thought that was the last I would ever have to deal with that mess again, but unfortunately I was wrong. The debt collectors never sent us a specific tax form we needed to fill out on my 2013 tax return and because it was filled out incorrectly, I owe the IRS $441, due April 8th. I told them that I was never given this form and they told me they didn't care. The fact that I never got the form, let alone even KNEW about it, was my responsibility to deal with.
Yeah. Figure that out.
I suggested to my mother since this was once again HER bill under MY name that we could sign up for a payment plan, but she refused as in doing so, the IRS would tack on interest as we went along and she would end up paying more that she would if she paid the $441 straight out. She said that she would pay the taxes straight out.
There are only two weeks left and I haven't heard a word about her making any effort to pay off this debt. But she has the nerve to tell me not to stress about it when stressing about it is all I've been doing because I know how unreliable she can be at times like this. How she loves to wait until the last possible minute.
Know how I know this? She's in no rush to pay off this debt, but she's more than happy to buy me airline tickets to visit the family in the summer for ROUGHLY THE SAME PRICE
As you can see, I am on my own once again on this one.
I absolutely HATE that I have to release the pack early and charge more, not to mention the fact that until this is dealt with, the 1,000 to Victory Campaign is on hold, but if I don't deal with this as soon as possible, I don't even want to imagine what will happen. Please forgive me and understand my situation. I would not be doing this otherwise.
