My bad luck just keeps going...

Before I start on my bad luck story, I would like to thank everyone for their comments in response to my acupuncture post. On Thursday, I did try acu #2 once again and I have decided that I will NOT go back. Mostly due to the fact that the guy that works with her gave me a massage on my back to loosen my muscles and now I have bruises in the middle of my back around my spine. There is another place I am going to try next week.

Ok, now to my (really, both DH and I) bad luck...

Two weeks ago, dh went to local pharmacy to get a few things and parked in the lot behind the building. He decided to go three shops down and get cash out of the bank ATM before going into pharmacy. By the time he was in the line to pay in the pharmacy, a tow truck guy came up to him and said he was towing the car because he went to bank and pharmacy and lot was only for pharmacy parking. WHAT?! The guy then made him pay $108 in cash on the spot to get the car off the tow truck. Since our 12 year old dog was still in the car, there was no other option but to pay him. What a scam?! DH did report it to the city of New York and also to some other agency that is investigating.

One week ago, we get a $115 parking ticket in downtown while we are shopping. Due to construction there were no signs posted that it was a fire lane that we apparently parked in. Out of the three cars that were parked in front and behind us, we were the only ones that got a ticket. How fair is that?!

Early this week, DH calls me at work to say that the fraud department from our bank left a message on our home voice mail and that I need to call them straight away. Oh great...What else? Yes, unlucky me... My ATM card number and PIN have been "compromised" and over the weekend someone in Montreal, Canada has withdrawn $2,000 out of our bank account!!! Although, the bank is not going to hold us responsible for the money, it will take a few weeks to before it gets put back into our account and after we do piles of paper work. ugh.

Yesterday started off very nice with a decent 6 inches of snow and since I love snow I thought that maybe my luck would change.... Nope..... DH called me around 2pm to say that our car, which was securely parked in front of our apartment building, was hit by a department of sanitation truck and the whole front area around the wheel and the front bumper were smashed up and the tire had a huge hole in it and was flat. The sanitation truck must have slid back and sideways as 4 cars were damaged. They did leave a claim form for us. How nice of them?

Then today I received a notice from my insurance company that before they pay any of my claims (which I have already paid out of our dimished bank account) they need additional information about why the procedures were performed. Hello??? they paid all my claims last year for the same reason? Infertility!! Now that I'm paying them myself they are stalling? What the fuck?!

When is my luck going to change?

What did I do to deserve all this?

that's a bad stretch of bad luck - to me, it only means that a stretch of good luck is on the way - the universe always tries for balance. In the meanwhile, I'm sorry about the enormous pain in the ass hassles you are going through. Unfair!

When it rains, it pours!!! But, why does it have to be so expensive???!!! I agree with egged out. The universe owes you big time!

ugh.... that is a rough patch. I hope this unlucky phase is over. I'd be sooooo pissed about the tow truck thing. That guy must just sit there and watch for people that do that.

oh good lord. That's just, well, too fucking much to handle. I'm so sorry!!! Hang in there - it can't possibly keep going as badly. ~hugs~
