It’s been a week since I was de-jobbed. I’d love to be telling you that I’ve found something new and all is well, but I can’t do that.
In fact, things are pretty much more grim than they’ve ever been. Because, you see, I am not eligible for unemployment.
State I live in now says “You haven’t worked here long enough to qualify for unemployment here, go apply for benefits from State you used to live in…”
State I used to live in says “You don’t live here anymore AND you left of your own free will, bugger off, there will be no benefits for you!”
Agency I’d been working for has nothing.
I did have an interview on Monday that I felt went well, but they won’t be making a decision until tomorrow (after having interviewed candidates all week) so I doubt that they’ll even remember me. Which is sad, because I think I would have been a really good fit for the job.
But I’m looking. And applying. And even though I know it is pointless, I filled out the stuff to apply for unemployment in State I used to live in. Because maybe in OCTOBER, when I will be eligible to apply for unemployment in the State I now live in, it will make a difference. I hate bureaucracy BS.
So… at one week, that’s where things stand.
