    Ever call in sick because you can't afford gas?

    I have to call in sick today because I can't afford to put gas in my car.  Yes, I am that broke.  Living alone, making a huge car payment each month and taking a paycut at a new job has finally taken it's toll on me. Anyone else going through this?

    I have once called in sick becase I don't have money to pay the bus. At least you have a car. I can't blame you the price of gas nowadays is just crazy!

    Ha ha that's definitely a sign of the times.  Bets thing to do is work from home in that scenario if your company allows that.

    No not yet, but based on this economy I'm headed in that direction so I feel your pain. I'm going through some terrible times too. God help us all.
