Yesterday DH and went to pick up his car, We went to pump gas for his car and my truck. We both pumped 30.00 of gas in each car, and went into the store, He played 10 bucks in lottery tickets. When he handed the cashier 100.00 bill she handed him back 60 bucks. He tried telling her she gave him back too much change. We both sat there for trying to tell her this for about 2 mins. When she said OMG you two are together! I guess it did not hit her till then. She kept saying I am so sorry.... and Thank you for being honest.

My son has a friend from school, he has been friends with since first grade. They are both going into their sophomore year now. His friend lives in an apartment complex with a pool, so we went over to go swimming and hang out. While we were swimming, his mother's car was repossessed. She was a wreck obviously.

She then proceeds to tell me about how she had to have emergency gall bladder surgery 6 months ago, and when she got out of the hospital, her position was replaced, and now she is unemployed.

She called her ex husband and asked for help, but he said no.

A couple of days later, she tells the kids they have to move to Florida, because she is behind on the rent as well.

We invited them over for dinner, and they are telling me how they need to move, etc, and she has no options and no car. The kids tell me how good dinner is, and that they haven't eaten meat in a while. She was unable to buy groceries too. I then took her to the store and stocked her up.

So, my husband and I talked it over, and we went to the bank to get her the money she needed to get current on her rent. Then we set about a plan to get her a car. My FIL had a car that was sitting in the driveway, but not running or registered. We decided to get that running and registered to help her on her feet.

So, now, she has a car that runs, and won't get repo'd, and can catch her breath and figure out what she and her family need to do.

Today I was on the Garden State Parkway and for the heck of it I went through the Toms River North toll plaza and took an attended booth instead of Ez-Pass. I gave the clerk a $5.50 and told him to pay for the next 10 cars.

I drove away slowly and saw the next person apparently argui9ng with the toll collector who wasn't taking the money.

Today I will be signing a lease with a new tenant. The house normally rents for 700 a month, however, I am renting it for 200 a month on a 6 month lease to two army vets that recently came back and currently homeless. To make up the difference, I have other rentals in the area and they are going to mow some lawns, and paint some stuff in another rental. Its enough to help them IMO to get back on their feet. Once the lease is up in 6 months, we will take another look at it and go from there. They were very happy with that.

My step dad works for the Veterns Dept and told me about them coming in and asking for help. He helped them as much as he could. Once I learned about it, I told him that I can rent the house to them.

I would have never had all this stuff if it wasnt for the vets. My dad was a vet and passed away when I was younger. I was able to go to college the first time basically for free on a War Orphans Scholarship. I do what I can to help out and pay it back.
