I Made a BOO BOO

January 17th, 2011 at 09:27 am

Ordinarily, my child support payments are deposited into my account on Tuesday, like clockwork. So I set up some payments to be sent tomorrow. However, today is a bank holiday, which I forgot about. Therefore, my child support might not show up until Wednesday. Now I am scrambling to find money to cover what I have to pay tomorrow. The largest of which are my speeding tickets. Well, one ticket for speeding and one ticket for having an expired tag. Total is $310. I am about $30 short...but wait, I just remembered that I have money in my kids savings accounts. I put $20 each payday into each of the accounts. I hate to touch them, but this is an almost emergency. I am not sure what the penalty would be for not paying the tickets on their due date. I know have enough to pay the tickets! YEA! That is a huge relief.

    That is a good thing you have extra cash on hand for this emergency. Smile

    In California, a ticket for such thing as expired tags are called "fix-it tickets". You get the item "fixed" within a specified period of time, and you don't pay the ticket. It doesn't work that way in Georgia?

    If your kids know about their accounts, could you explain the situation and ask if it's OK to borrow from them?

    The kids don't know about their savings accounts, otherwise I would talk to them about it.

    Petunia...you got me thinking. It is not an automatic dropping of the ticket, but I am going to go to court and ask the Judge to drop the ticket.
