And my dad says he's going to help me! Like no! I don't want my dad to help me do the "paperwork" I would like to handle this like a young adult. (I'm a minor) So, will I need my dad's help? Thanks :)

  • How long does it usually take to find a job?

    So I've been searching endlessly for a job of my own for about a year now. I'm tired of being dependent upon my parents for money, which they hardly lend me, and not being able to buy the necessities I need as well as things I want.

    So I've been searching endlessly for a job of my own for about a year now. I'm tired of being dependent upon my parents for money, which they hardly lend me, and not being able to buy the necessities I need as well as things I want. When I was 17, I stumbled upon my first job opportunity at a Target which was hiring and due to lack of experience, I didn't get the job. Since then, I've been desperate to find one and I've probably applied for 40 jobs since then, at stores, restaurants, theme parks, even internships and haven't gotten one. About 8 of them replied to inform me I've been rejected and the rest just never responded which quite frankly means the same thing. I've graduated high school now and I'm really looking into being more independent. I mean, how can I ever move out if I can't financially support myself? Am I just having bad luck or is this the normal process of job hunting? Thank you.

  • I need to move out ASAP. What can I do?

    I live with my parents but they are divorcing, so my mom is going to find her own rent and she will not help me with anything financially.

    I live with my parents but they are divorcing, so my mom is going to find her own rent and she will not help me with anything financially. I am currently on my first year of college, and I plan to transfer to a University in 2-3 years, but right now I need to move out asap. I live in South Florida, where the rent is minimum $1,000 everywhere. I have 300 dollars in my bank and plenty of bills. I have a not-so-stable babysitting job but I'm not sure if the parents will be calling me back. (and it only pays me 50 bucks a week) Getting a real job will be hard and might take me some time unless I settle for slavery-type jobs (lol) like restaurants or fast-food joints, but I need a place to live asap and I need a good-paying job to keep up with my bills+debts. I currently pay for: internet ($40), my insurance ($35), car loan ($229.69), phone ($50), credit card ($57) paypal credit loans ($35) and that does not include another loan that will be coming up soon (35) plus my car insurance which I need to apply for. (I'm young so it might be pricey) Also, I'll likely be responsible for many other new responsibilities (rent, water, food, etc.). I drive my own car. Do you guys know of any ideas or suggestions to help me in my situation? I just need some ideas.. I'm not sure of what I can do to afford school+bills+loans+rent+life with minimum wage jobs.. I'd love to move upstate or to another country if it makes things easier but I'm not sure if switching colleges will be so simple..

    So I am a regular cigarette smoker and I live in a large apartment complex on 2nd floor! I m new to the building by one month and the upstairs neighbor has TWICE now asked me not to smoke on my balcony because the smell goes into her window. I pay rent here and I feel that nobody should tell me what I can and can t do as I would never do that. Mind you the lady has THREE small children that are very noisy ESPECIALLY at night and are even allowed to run all over the house well into the night, sometimes even as late as midnight or 1am! Save the lectures, I know smoking is unhealthy but it s my body and my choice! I have kids ofor my own whom I make sure keep levels of noise to a minimum out of respect and I stay on top of that! It does not say in my lease that I cannot smoke on my balcony or apartment, which I don t smoke in my apartment but the POINT is that it s not against my lease and no where on the property including outside of the building entrances or parking lot does it ban smoking. The building(S) all have regular smokers as well. Anyways she is very rude and I told her she CAN close her window and she threatened to report my smoking. I have maybe 4 cigarettes throughout the day on my balcony and told her I pay rent and I can smoke if I want to though.

  • How do I handle this girl at work?

    Best answer: Next time tell her, "Thanks, but I have all the cards I can handle right now. Actually I brought some for you today." Then hand her like 10 business cards.

  • Does my credit score keep dropping if I don't have an installment loan?

    So I just finished paying off my student loans last month and I was excited to see (what I had hoped) a bump up in my Fico score. I was unpleasantly surprised when the score actually dipped like 25 points. After doing some research apparently the credit score will go down when you finish a loan and have no other ones. That is precisely my case. I have no car, student, or mortgage loans. I have zero debt for now. My question is will the lack of an installment loan keep lowering my score every month or was that a one time hit?

  • What happens if my insurance company denies the claim for a crown?

    My dentist said that I needed a crown. A piece of my tooth cracked off and my dentist said that there wasn't enough tooth structure to do a simple filling. So, I got a crown.

Now, two and a half months later, I got a letter from my insurance company saying that the crown was unnecessary and that a simple filling would have been enough. They're not going to pay anything. Am I really supposed to be on the hook for another $1300?? This seems ridiculous.

    I am horrible at managing my money and I don't have enough money on my bank account to pay for my car insurance which they always deduct tomorrow. Once they try to withdraw it, the bank always messes me up because they don't give them the money but do charge me an overdraft fee every time which is going to mess me up even more. I won't have enough money until Thursday. Do you think I should call the bank and tell them to block the transaction. Considering how tough the police is in this country lately I am worried I could get in trouble for going four days without insurance.
