So, really, and mostly my own fault, I'm broke. I knowI could manage my finances better, and really I'm working on that, but this does not help the fact that right now, at this moment, I don't have as much money as I would like to have.
So yesterday, when I recieved my weekly pennysaver, I thought I would check the help wanted section to see if anything caught my fancy.
The first option was from a sincere couple looking to pay at least $40,000 for a surrogate mother. Hmm. but do I really trust a couple who would advertise in the pennysaver for an incubator? I mean, I was looking, so other people like me probably look, but something just sounded odd about it. Plus, I'm not so sure I want to spend 9 months pregnant with a child I will probably never see again. For my sisters, I would do it. for a stranger, I'm not so sure. Although the temptation is occationally there to sell my eggs because, hey, I'm not using them! and hey! people actually pay for those, and Hey! men sell their sperm, right? (except that men have an unlimited army as I do not)
So I looked at work at home opportunities, which all sound great except that I have been bitten twice by that and I don't really want to be bitten again. The first time was through a friend of my mother who assembled jewelry at home. I sent my money and application, and never heard from them again. I sent letters, but eventually had to kiss that $150 goodbye. The reason I was trying to work from home is because I needed money, not because I had it to spare.
The second time, I signed up to stuff envelopes at home, but found out that the envelopes I would be stuffing were envelopes advertising how you can stuff envelopes at home and so on. There was a money back guarantee, but I missed the deadline. I can't remember what happened with that. Likely another waste of funds.
This time, I went to the websites advertised. And saw that yes, it is possible to make $15 processing rebates or money entering data, but the data they showed looked more like spam to me, and the rebate comany didn't really say what the rebates were for. Both companies wanted $100 to sign up.
Yes, I am willing to work at a store or something for extra cash. But wouldn't it be nice if I could work from home at my leisure? (Remember, I have a start up business to run) I guess the moral of the story is, there are no free rides and nothing takes the place of hard work. Thank goodness I learned that lesson when I was younger. I hope no one is getting hoodwinked by these companies.
