1. Going To Extremes For Money

Reddit user Timhortons67 told an interesting story. “It’s a pretty simple and uneventful story. I was in A LOT of debt and needed some money. I couldn’t pay my credit cards off and was terrified of someone showing up at my door.” The story went on, “I hid in a family well with my possessions for days until I heard my creditors knock on my door. Thankfully, things eventually changed. “I eventually got out of this hole, but I don’t know what would have happened if I had met them that day. I’m not sure what would have happened, and I’m glad I never found out. Everything worked out a few months later, and I was able to start paying my bills again.”

This is a sad story. How much debt do you have to have to go to such extremes? Hiding in a family well with everything you own seems pretty extreme. We’re sure the creditors would have worked something out with this Reddit user, but again, we don’t know the circumstances. They start by saying it’s an uneventful story, but it seems pretty eventful to me. It’s nice to hear that everything worked out in the end, and this Reddit user was able to start paying off their debts and stop hiding in the well.
