It wasn’t too long ago when I woke up in the middle of the night with excruciating pain coming from the left side of my mouth. I got up and tried flossing, gargling and brushing my teeth – but nothing would make it go away. I knew right away that this was no ordinary cavity! The next day I got an emergency appointment with my dentist and he delivered the bad news – I had a cracked tooth and the bill to fix it was going to be well over $600. Furthermore, he said if I didn’t deal with it now it was going to turn into a situation where I needed a root canal – to the tune of $1,750!
Of course, this emergency came at the worst time. It was another week and a half to payday and my bank account was sitting on empty. Last months’ heating bill had done a number on my checking account, and now I was worried more than ever what I was doing to do. I certainly couldn’t go around for almost two weeks with the pain I was experiencing.
I was talking to a friend and she suggested that I check into getting a payday loan – they helped her when her car broke down and she was sure they could help. I decided to take her advice and did some digging and liked what I say – here was a loan company designed to help people just like me who needed small loans for an emergency. Even better, the payday loan company had a website online where I could securely fill out the application and get approved in no time flat. They promised that the money would be in my bank account the next day!
Sure enough, the money showed up the next morning and I was off to get the tooth fixed. I can’t tell you how relieved I was when the dentist put the final touches on that tooth! I also can’t tell you much relief I got knowing that I had a company who was willing to help me financially during my emergency without judging me or making me wait for weeks on end to find out if I was approved or not.
What amazed me the most about the payday loan process was that they didn’t want to know every little detail about my life, or what the money was going to be used for. They just wanted some basic information, like where I lived, where I worked and such. The process was so simple I was almost sure there was a catch – but sure enough, just as my friend said, they came through for me when I needed them the most.
Today, my tooth is feeling great and now I know no matter what happens in life that I have a resource I can turn to for financial help even in the darkest hours. Thanks to the payday loan industry I was able to keep my dignity, get the dental work done that I need and keep my financial matters to myself. I couldn’t ask for anything better!
