Well, a big emergency happened. I took my car in and got an estimate for work that needed to be done. I requested the exact amount from my trust fund and got the money the next day. I rented a car to get to work that day using my debit card, something I've never done. You have to fill out some extra paperwork and show two bills and proof of insurance. So I did all that so I wouldn't have to use my credit cards. So I'm at work and Firestone calls me and says when they took the radiator hoses off to replace them they saw that the radiator was eaten through and would have to be replaced. This would be an extra $400. I'd just gotten paid and knew that if I paid the extra 400 I would not have money left for my bills. So I split about $230 of it between two credit cards and paid for the rest. I feel really bad about it but didn't know what else to do. I didn't want to ask for anymore money from my trust fund since I'd already gotten out about $800. And I didn't want to get behind on my other credit card payments and bills.
