Do you know me?
My name is Billy. When my wife died, I was left alone with our three year old son. It also meant we had to live on just my income, which wasn’t enough. My car broke down and I didn’t have enough money to fix it, so I had to take my son to pre-school then get a bus to work, and since I was constantly late for work, I got fired. I haven’t been able to find another job. My son and I are living in our car, but it’s gotten so many tickets that I know that one day soon, it will be towed away and I’ll lose everything we own. But I have to get him to pre-school and spend my days looking for work. I’m just hoping I’ll find that next job before the car is towed.
