Today I go to certify for my last 2 weeks of unemp1oyment. It goes through but does not give me an amount or when I will be paid. So I call and wait on hold F O R E V E R and the lady says that it did not pay me because their is an open investigation. I say wait I got a thing in the mail that says I am eligible and for how many weeks and for how long. She says that is just eligibility but I have to wait to see if I am "qualified". Well thank you for being as clear as mud! She says that because I said terminated they have to look into it. I said well on the form you sent me it says my employers name and reason for leaving job was "lack of work". I ask what does that mean. She says "well let me look at it and see if I can help". Then she sees it and says " just to let you know your employer can protest"...I say " Yes I know". I asked what they said and she said she can't tell me and it will take another 7-10 days for me to get a questionaire and then 6-8 weeks for a determination. Um...how long? " Well due to the high unemp1oyment rate it takes longer" Well I have been out of work for 3 weeks what the heck takes so long to mail forms? I have received all kinds of stuff from unemp1oyment including 2 debit cards. Which to me seems like money well spent for the state if they don't even know if I am going to get it. For a state that is broke they certainly waste a lot of money. They did a name change in 3 days...I'm just sayin'
So here I was rollin' along thinking things were fine and now I find out it will be at least 8 weeks and no guarantee. Her response after looking at my stuff makes me really nervous like she saw something bad. I know I am way over thinking but I am really freaked out. What am I going to do for 8 weeks and then what will I do if I don't get it. I definitely will fight it but who wants to spend their time doing that? And still there is NO GUARANTEE. I am not a patient person. I do not like waiting because I am a worrier and during the next 8 weeks I am going to be worried about what am I going to do? Am I going to be on the streets? Where will my doggies and cat go? what about baby makin'? This is not good!
I am trying to analyze. I know a girl got fired for looking at porn on the internet which she had been warned about several times and she is getting unemp1oyment. Does that mean I will? I never had a warning and all I did was tell somebody that with the job cuts I was worried about losing my job. Apparently that was some big company secret. Yea sure no one knew (note sarcasm). I could get into all the things my boss told me that she should not have like about other people who were at my same level and their write ups. All their personal business. She used to tell the 2 guys I worked closely with all about my fertility stuff. Which uh none of their business!
Anyway so as you can tell I am freaking the F@#$ out! What the hell am I going to do?
