      I’ve tried. They don’t have anything that’ll help pay rent this saturday.

        How about Adam, can he ask his grandparents for a loan for a week or so?? It’s not like it would be a longtime thing right?

        Or could you call your landlord and tell him that you can only pay half now and would it be okay to pay the other half in a week? Stacey used to do that all the time and apparently it worked for her.

          heh. His grandparents wouldn’t give him money if he was lying near death at the side of the road. They’d lecture him about it though, and tell him how if they were the ones in this situation they could find work in a second, and not just any work, but they could find 25$ an hour full time jobs! Yeah. Not worth it to ask when we won’t get anything from them anyhow.

          I could ask the landlady. She doesn’t really speak much english, but I might be able to explain.

            From experience most landlords can be sympathetic in these situations as long as you don’t make a habit of it. Everyone knows the economy is sucking ass right now.
