Broken Tiles

Why do things always happen when I’m strapped for cash? This seems to go for everything in my life, good and bad. For example, last month I incurred some expenses that I wasn’t expecting and had to dip into my savings to be able to pay for them. The expenses also used up the majority of my spending and I get paid monthly, so that’s that for the month. I have nothing left to spend.

These unexpected expenses have set me up for disappointment ever since I incurred them. I wasn’t able to go on a spontaneous weekend trip away with my friends, and then that very morning that my friends were all going away, the tiles in my shower fell inwards and almost sent me into the pits of hell. I haven’t been able to afford to get them retiled yet or even speak to a bathroom renovation company about what has happened. I’m waiting until I get my next pay packet to even talk to them about it, because I won’t be able to afford it until then, so what’s the point?

I wish I was one of those people that had a high paying job and a bulky savings account so that I didn’t have to worry about stuff like this. I could just get my shower repaired and not bat an eyelid, or even better, just chat to the bathroom designers in Melbourne and get a whole new bathroom, just because.

When I give them a ring in two weeks time, I’m going to explain that the tiles broke through no fault of my own. I was seriously just standing there washing my hair and dropped 15cm into the floor. I thought there was an earthquake until I realised that it was just my shower. Talk about getting the shock of my life. I don’t even know what caused it, I just know that it definitely wasn’t me.
