So it’s fiction time today

Victoria felt morose, miserable, and felt like letting out a scream.

This is not what she had expected. Her job was no more, the company had laid off 100 employees in a single day. These were the difficult times. Every other day people were getting laid off.

But there was something else on her mind. How will she pay her bills? Her credit card bills had shot up over thousands of dollars. How would she repay?

“Ohh… why am I such an impulsiveshopper?? Why did I buy all those things? What do I do now?” she asked herself.

She checked her account on her smart phone and saw she only had a sparse savings which could sustain her for a month.

What would she do now?

    Ooof, not a good place to be in. I could say "I've been there-" but just the job loss.

    It's really scary when we find ourselves in that place. I hope she found a way out
