I lost my job last week, just about the time my divorce was finalized. I was behind in mortgage payments and was given a final notice. My credit cards are maxed out. Today, the IRS decided to dip into my savings account to cover unpaid taxes plus penalty. I feel like a hamster running in a wheel of doom; running, but getting nowhere.

My life couldn’t have gotten any worse, except it had. You see, the reason why I was behind in all those payments is because my wife was a shopaholic. Now she’s left me for my best friend.
