I have things to do so this is gonna be short. So far everything about this Unemployment thing is just a giant, confusing, Clusterfuck.
I think I managed to make a claim over the internet but it got flagged for some bullshit claiming I was a member of the Longshoreman’s Union, that I may have had an injury to claim and something else that escapes me at the moment.
The Union thing must be from a previous employer from over ten years ago, the injury thing is a mystery.
They say the have to call me to try and straighten that out and it may take several days. Which means they will call me very early in the morning after I have been working nights for ten years and don’t wake up before eleven.
I have to go to some Workforce outfit and do job searches and I don’t have a clue what that’s about yet but is where I am headed here shortly.
I ain’t the sharpest knife in the drawer to begin with but dealing with a firmly entrenched government agency that is massively overloaded with millions of other people already out of work and dealing with their Byzantine rules promises to be quite the time sink.
The backing plate for my Mini Lathe Chuck showed up this morning. After I spend the afternoon fucking with the Unenjoyment system I might go see if it actually fits.
Stay tuned, I can feel a major hissy fit coming.
