I don't mean just say "I'm sorry." I just mean when you explain the situation do so with hat in hand. As for E.I. how many of those people who didn't get it only worked there for a short time? Because you've worked there since I've been here and that's at least 5 years. Kids who work a job for a few months aren't going to get it. And welfare is pretty low I know. But like I said it beats getting noting. Just talk it over with your landlord and tell him/her you're sorry and you're going to pay your rent as soon as you can. Don't wait until the landlord comes looking for it.
