Chill, It's No Big Deal
3/1/2009 8:23:30 AM    [ Flag as Spam or Inappropriate ]

Bankruptcy is no disgrace. It's your right as an American citizen. Millions of American's file bankruptcy every year without shame or blame. In fact, it's an inevitable fact of life in our credit driven economy.
Get a nasty letter in the mail?
Send us money or weíll give you hell?
Donít lose your cool, donít get upset
Chill, itís no big deal

Creditor called and wants his bread?
Got to have it now, no more said?
Donít get upset, donít be depressed
Chill, itís no big deal

Constable came knocking at your door?
Youíve been sued, canít take no more?
Take a deep breath, donít despair
Chill, itís no big deal.

Didnít pay your taxes? Owe a lot?
Accounts been seized. Now your checks are hot?
Take a walk, get some air
Chill, itís no big deal.

Rent is late? Landlord lookiní for the cash?
Wants the rent or youíre out on your ass
Take two aspirin and go to bed
Chill, itís no big deal

ĎCause when your world starts to crumble
Your lawyer will be sure you donít stumble
Heíll smile as he takes your cash and tell you
Chill, itís no big deal

I wrote this poem initially to get across the point that it's advisable to get an attorney immediately when you get in trouble. Better yet, get an attorney when you first smell trouble. Too many people wait until it's too late to take any preventative or defensive measures before they seek legal advice. The consequences of that strategy can be devastating.

But there's another message in the poem that is important in today's economy. When you lose a job or take a pay cut, remember, we're just talking about money. Don't let your temporary financial difficulties destroy the most important things in you life like your marriage, your family and your integrity.

If bill collector's are hounding you, your rent is late, or the repos man is looking for your car, go see your attorney and discuss bankruptcy. Millions of Americans file bankruptcy every year. It's not a disgrace. It's a fact of life in our credit driven economy. And bankruptcy doesn't mean you lose everything. In fact, most people don't lose anything but their debts. Chapter 13 is a great way to catch up on your house payments, cure a default on a car loan, or pay your delinquent taxes.

Remember, it's just money. Chill, it's no big deal!
