What a day.
I got to work today and discovered that the decision about the future of my workplace will not be made on the 24th as we were told, but that it had already been made and there would be a big meeting in the auditorium to discuss it tomorrow at 2:30. That is beyond ominous.
Just after that, I got an e-mail from an old friend who asked me to repay the $200. he loaned me in 1998, and an additional $300. WTF? Are you kidding me? 1. He did not LOAN me any money. 2. He GAVE me $80., in fact, he INSISTED that I take it, because I was heading out on a cross-country trip by myself and he wanted me to have a few extra dollars. 3. When I offered to repay it (in 1998), he wouldn't take it.
My first thought was to tell him to keep on dreaming. But instead I wrote back and told him I would be happy to repay him in installments, but I am kind of broke right now (I didn't mention that I am broke because I just bought diamond earrings). I did tell him that I wish he had mentioned this earlier because I had no idea he thought I owed him money. (I didn't argue the amount - I will pay him $200. because I can't prove it wasn't.)
I wonder if he is drinking. He is one of those guys who got sober and got real successful in business and didn't need to hang around meetings anymore. I have a feeling he is no longer real successful in business if he is trying to get $500. from me.
Oh, the people in AA. It is always something. Most of the time wonderful somethings, but sometimes just crazy ass shit like this.
So tomorrow I will know more about my fate. Lucky for me, I have been homeless and broke before and I know I lived through it and I know I will be OK no matter what happens in my life now.
If God is with me, who can be against me?
