even though I have NO food in the cupboard?

Ridiculously, I have nothing to eat for the next 10 days, other than some noodles. I'm not quite sure what to do for DS's packed lunch on Friday. I am so broke it is making me sick to the stomach.

But I got bought a bottle of wine today, and have had half of it now.

AIBU to worry about it all tomorrow am?

10 days is a long time, there must be someone who can help you out?

bubaluchy Wed 06-Jul-11 22:30:02

OMG can you get a crisis loan from the CAB? Or a pay day loan from the money shop? If you're desperate if you have a local Church or Buddhist centre and you will be fed No youre NBU enjoy what you have good luck smile

You should have stood outside the offy, flogged it and bought some food wink

Seriously though, is your child going to be living on noodles for 10 days too?

usualsuspect Wed 06-Jul-11 22:33:14

have you any family/friends to get some food from?

Well, I wouldn't be buying a bottle of wine if that money would pay for few of my child's school lunches and I looove wine.

Have you got anyone to help you?

worraliberty Wed 06-Jul-11 22:36:56

She didn't buy the wine winny

MouseyCrumb Wed 06-Jul-11 22:37:05

I can do a begging act to a certain person tomorrow, and hopefully he might pay for a bit of shopping

Can't get a crisis loan - they don't cover this kind of thing.

Worra. If I'd thought about it earlier I'd have made my way down to the offy and flogged it smile

MouseyCrumb Wed 06-Jul-11 22:38:24

Yes Winny, I'm buying wine when there is nothing for my child to eat?

hmm x 100


winnybella Wed 06-Jul-11 22:39:57

Ah, sorry, you're right, worraliberty. it was the 'I got bought' line and I missed the 'got'.

Enjoy, OP smile

Hope it'll work out tomorrow.

winnybella Wed 06-Jul-11 22:41:57

Sorry again, OP

<feels a sanctimonious twat>

AgentZigzag Wed 06-Jul-11 22:43:59

I thought it too until I reread the OP winny FWIW grin

MouseyCrumb Wed 06-Jul-11 22:50:22

Yeah, grin all you like at the bad grammar. Apologies.

AgentZigzag Wed 06-Jul-11 22:52:50

It wasn't the way you wrote it Mousey, it's my ineffective skim reading.

Is the money shortage a long term thing? Any chance of a change in fortune in the near future?

MouseyCrumb Wed 06-Jul-11 22:58:14

No fortune change

Am literally broke 2.5 after payday

I am fucking sick of it.


worraliberty Wed 06-Jul-11 23:05:00

Is it a debt problem?

If so, have you asked CAB for help? They can help reduce payments to lenders.

Sorry if it's not and I've got the wrong end of the stick.

You're posting, presumably to get an opinion, but giving very little in the way of facts - and then when posters make assumptions about your situation that are wrong, having a go. Piss, or get off the pot.

ChaosTrulyReigns Wed 06-Jul-11 23:15:07

I don't think posters made assumptions Huw.

I think, and they conceded, that they read the OP wrong.

A bit of sympathy perhaps?

MouseyCrumb Wed 06-Jul-11 23:17:09

God, I'm sorry Huw.

I forgot that MN needs to be able to judge. And therefore each post needs every fucking detail so posters can do their best/worst.


I need to give facts. Apparently to be able to solicit responses...

DP made redundant in 20089. Then made redundant again in early 2010.

No jobs since then. There literally are NO JOBS here

Piss or get off what fucking pot?

Fuck you Huw.

HuwEdwards Wed 06-Jul-11 23:18:41

Chaos, ok, maybe ;o)

worraliberty Wed 06-Jul-11 23:21:23

Why do you have no food OP?

Are you claiming everything you're entitled to?

What about free school meals for your DS?

Have you spoken to CAB or anyone who may be able to help?

HuwEdwards Wed 06-Jul-11 23:22:10

Mousey, read the title of your post and your OP - how can anyone respond with anything informative.

Of course you need to give facts to be able to solicit reasonable responses...

sorry for your situation (now I know it) and quite frankly, fuck it, down the bottle.

ChaosTrulyReigns Thu 07-Jul-11 14:45:47

How are you feeling today Mousey?

Is there any light at the end of the tunnel?
