Sneaky and Fast Financial Emergencies

My family spent a week at Table Rock Lake in Missouri this summer swimming, skiing, wakeboarding, kneeboarding, tubing, boating and fishing.   It was an incredible week.   Except for the broken toe I sustained while doing a good deed and the faceplant I performed while wakeboarding.

The faceplant reminded me a lot of some financial emergencies my family has sustained.

  • It happened so fast I did not see it coming
  • It HURT – at first I could not even register the pain, then I felt more pain than I ever wanted to
  • It happened even though I did not want it to
  • It was visible to everyone that I was on the edge of a mess, but I was not able to hear them for the noise

In fact, they had the camera rolling as I crashed.   You can check it out by clicking the 43-second YouTube video below or by clicking HERE.

You can hear how much sympathy I received at the end of the video when you hear the laughter.   Ever noticed that some people have no sympathy for your financial mess?
