So our new landlord has like bent over backwards for us, has been a really great guy, offered us help with everything.
He knew we were breaking our previous lease and told us straight up he was weary of renting to us but also understands that life happens and if you cant afford a place then you have to move and was happy we were honest with him about our situation and he got a good vibe from us and blah blah blah.
well we paid our deposit and gave him the prorated rent for may, june 1st would be our first full rent payment....WELL.... I went in to early labor the day DH has to put in his work ours to be approved for pay and he completely forgot....because I was in preterm labor, and we had the baby and he didn't realize he didnt put in his hours until it was one day too late. So today we had to tell the landlord that we didnt have the rent money and wouldnt until 2 weeks from now when we get our next paycheck....
we feel like douche bags.
The poor guy was like "come on and just be honest with me, is this going to be an every month thing cause I will just let you out of the lease no with no hard feelings" My poor husband is like mortified that we look like that.
We're hoping to have an extra 50-100 dollars in the paycheck so we can give him and his wife a giftcard to a restaurant or something on top of rent to apologize for the mistake and inconvienence.....we really feel like smurf about it but with the preterm labor and the baby being born 3 weeks early and all the health problems and the chaos my husband was so overwhelmed and running around like a headless chicken that he made an honest mistake....and all I want to do is hug him because the look on his face when he told me he forgot to put in the hours was just devisating, he looked completely crushed and just kept going on and on about how its all his fault and he feels so bad...hes being really hard on himself and I wish there was something I could do to take all his stress away....
I LOVE THEM
