I'm probably either going to have to sell my slot or just eat the 1500 loss on it... and that has nothing to do with where the game is at. >_<
Had to go to Louisville for a funeral, lost a bunch of overtime hours due to that (not a huge deal, but it compounds..), wife's dad is really bad off and she's going to fly out there for a week which will remove another week of her income, will likely have to go back within months for his funeral, my car got totaled by the insurance company and now I have to find a new car, and ya'll all know what car prices and availability is like right now...and to top it off, State Farm didn't even TELL US they had decided to total the car instead of repairing it...AT ALL!!! Found out late yesterday in the middle of a 14 hour drive home after 5 hours of sleep and getting up at 3am, because Enterprise called to tell us we had to return the rental car on Tuesday, we called the collision center and they told us SF had decided to total it and it wasn't their responsibility to let us know that.
So now my options are to either eat a monthly payment for years, or to spend the money I was hoping to use for Ultraman to pay off a new car purchase so I don't get stuck with a payment that I may not be able to afford. Clearly, there's a sane choice, and an insane choice here...but I don't have to be happy about it. Cars are obviously more needed than a stupid pinball machine.
It's pointless to even TRY to sell my BSE slot right now with people dumping CEs for the same price, so I can't even gracefully get out of this and get the money back to help with these expenses. Thank god I didn't have the money to pay in full, because I was totally going to try to do that so I wouldn't have to worry about it....but then I'd be stuck 8k out of pocket with no way to recover.
