Well fellow hondaswappers. heres what has happend to me since you last heard from me. I lost my job on a friday. Started at a machine shop on monday as inventory manager/supervisor. i was SUPPOSED to bring home $440 a week. That was the minimum till the small shop would level off and i would get a raise afterwards. Well, he pays me 11/hr and then takes taxes from that. To make matters worse there isnt enough work to even get 30 hours! Whatever. i stick it out until i'm borderline broke........i go in a quit and jobless for 1.5 week. I Get rehired from the company i got fired from thatnks to a friend. Now i'm an assistant manager making .50 cents more than before. sweet. My mom then gets thrown in jail because some idiot drops the ball back in '96. She had her check book stolen and even though we filed a case with the police AND called the bank. They still issued Warrant for writing bad checks. So here we are in 08, she gets pulled over for speeding and gets taken to jail. To make matters worse, because she's mexican INS gets involved. They investigate and tell the sheriff's office to hold her for 48 hours. We are freaking out and nervous. We dish out $3,500 on my wifes credit card and get my immigration attorney to help her out. Fucking waste of money. He doesnt do shit but take our money. Luckily because she has a clean record they let her go after a full week of eating shit and being treated like a criminal. Now that she's out she has friends whom she cleans houses for that are big time lawyers.They feel the Immigration attorney ripped her off and are fighting (FOR FREE!) to get her money back AND settle the criminal record AND got her another immigration attorney whom is friends with the lawyer. I know i prolly doesnt sound like much but all this happend since you guys last heard from me months ago. It had put a big strain on my marriage and finances. Well the finaces are what put stress in my marriage. Everything else just gave me stress I'm back now feeling better waiting for my first big check that will level us off finally this week. Ohh and............................. I finally got my court hearing to get my green card!!!!!!!1 woot woot! finally after almost 3 fucking years and $10,000 borrowed dollars i think i will finally be legal!!!!!! that is all.
