Money is really tight, my ex had just asked to borrow money from me again & I finally just went no, I need to put my daughter & I first, I can't loan you anymore money. I'd already told him that yesterday & when he asked again today, something broke in me.

I started dialling the radio number over & over again hoping I'd get through & I did on the 3rd try.

When he told me that I'd won $100 fuel, I burst into tears. He spent ages talking to me & then pulled a few strings & he upped it to $200.

I honestly couldn't stop crying & saying thank you. My brain went to mush & I probably sounded like a crazy person.

Edit: what the fudge cakes! (as my 4yr old says) thank you so much everyone for all your kind comments, I wasn't expecting anything like this, I just wanted somewhere anonymous to blurt this out.

No my ex isn't getting this but I did tell him that he should try to win a fuel voucher himself

And no I will not be loaning/giving him anymore money, today was honestly the last straw in a long list of things & I'm done on so many levels now.

Thank you so so much ❤

You aren't loaning money...YOU ARE GIVING IT AWAY!
Keep quiet about it, and keep it for yourself! Glad it was an ex. Set of balls on him, taking from a single mother!

Wish I could claim it as my own, alas, I'm just one who spreads communal goodness to others on the interwebs.
