This might not be scary to some, but I thought I was going to die. I used to work for a well known payday loan company and part of my job was collecting on past due accounts including title loans. For those who don’t know what this is, it’s a title pawn basically but with different legalities. This information will be important later.
It was a rather slow day and a very good customer had recently dropped off their vehicle because they knew they wouldn’t be able to pay back the loan. I felt awful for them but business is business and I took the key. We had the vehicle for over a month and hadn’t heard a thing from our repo contractor on when he was coming to get it. On another unusually slow day, I was sitting at my boss’s desk making calls when a quad cab Chevy pickup whipped into the handicap spot directly in front of the glass door of my job. I watched as two tall, built men wearing black everything from hat to boots and sunglasses got out of the truck as if on a mission. My stomach dropped into my feet when I saw they both had on a utility belt with holstered guns.
