I have called the FA office a couple of times to find out when checks will be sent out for this semester. They had previously told me that they will be sent out the week before school starts. Great, I thought, because that gives me a couple of days to get books, supplies, shoes, etc., and pay for dues, uniforms, and other things at our Welcome Brunch the Thursday before class starts.
Well, I called today to see if I could get a more definite day as to when MY check would be mailed out. AND...are you ready?...They have no idea, and no control over when checks will be processed. AND, Not Only That, BUT...some people do not get their check until a couple of weeks AFTER school starts.
When I told the FA rep (over the phone...) she said, "Do you have a credit card? You could charge your stuff." Well NO I DO NOT HAVE A CREDIT CARD!! If I did, it wouldn't be such a big deal now, would it??? :angryfire
I don't understand how they expect people to get by, purchase necessary supplies, pay for daycare, etc. Obviously I am receiving FA for a reason...I AM POOR, don't have any money!
Now, I am really going to be stressing out (as if I haven't been already...now it is just THAT much worse)...and I don't know what I will do. My dh does not bring home enough for us to pay all the bills that are do, and me use another $1200 for books and supplies.
Thank you for listening to my rampage...it is just so frustrating...
