Financially my family was really poor and I could not afford the basic amenities, food was scarce, water was used at a bare minimum and electric was used only when we had to. The Wintertimes were the most difficult. The heating in our house barely turned on. I can remember a time of our teeth clacking together late at night when I was trying to fall asleep, but paying the heating bill was always a large deal in our house, all of us did not have a lot of dough to spare in the Wintertimetime. The proprietor worked as a Heating, Ventilation plus A/C worker on the side. The guy was not entirely sweet and ideal about giving us an oil furnace tune up for free though. He would only service the oil heater when we had the money to pay the bills. I was not able to go to college. I had several jobs, and occasionally I couldn’t afford to pay the bills. I lived in the same town I grew up in up North, with those same brutal cold seasons. I was driving to labor 1 morning, and was turning up the oil furnace in the truck. I wasn’t paying attention and spun out on some ice. The damage to the truck was so much cash. I looked at our bank account and realized that I couldn’t pay rent, electricity, car repairs, meals and gas. I had to service the truck because it was the only way of getting to task to make more dough for the other things. When I got home from work, there was an evicted sign on the door.
