My Fingers Are Crossed!

Oh, my fucking GOD!

This Unenjoyment bullshit would be enough to drive the most tech savvy motherfucker right over the edge.

I have been dicking with this shit all week!

The absolute lack of common sense from whoever designed their website should be criminal.

Then there is their phone help system….

I literally spent HOURS the other day getting the runaround from that fucker.

They give a phone number if you need to ask a question.

Of course it’s busy.

Redial that sonofabith 65 times. FINALLY get someone to answer !

Get your hopes up that maybe someone can answer a basic fucking question, but no.

They can’t answer that, here’s another number.

Redial THAT motherfucker 65 times.

Get the same runaround.

Did that, FOUR FUCKING TIMES!!

Final result?

They sent me back to the very first number…

Filled out their bullshit as best as I could.

Finally got a claim number which tells me I have an active claim.

Then they sent some alert about applying for extended benefits.

It won’t let me fill it out.

More hair pulling.

I looked for two days for the form to fill out to fill in to make a weekly claim. NADA.

Back and forth and back and forth, I shit you not, I had TWELVE tabs open on this laptop.

Calling people who have been dealing with shit already.

I finally talked to my brother yesterday and he tells his daughter, my cutie pie niece who cut my hair last time.

She has been fucking with this for a month and a half. 40 days it took for her to get her first check!

She tells me that the form to fill out to make a weekly claim only appears, by fucking magic, on Sundays.

WHY THE FUCK CAN’T THEY PUT A MESSAGE ON THEIR WEBSITE TELLING YOU THAT?!!!

FUCKING COCKSUCKERS!!

The little darlin’ just left.

She had to come over and show me how it works after the damn thing finally appeared on their website.

So my very first weekly claim has been filed.

Now I get to wait and see if they actually pay me sometime this next week.

It’s been about ten years since I have been on Unemployment and for the life of me I don’t remember it being so fucked up.

I guess it’s possible that some fairly important brain cells got exterminated by drinking so much all those years but I’m here to tell you that there isn’t a reason on God’s green earth that this system needs to be so damn difficult to navigate.

Now if you will pardon me, the Sun is out and there is a massive amount of yard work screaming my name.

  1. Because it was designed and maintained by freaking dot indians with chinese supervisors who in the whole scope of things don’t give a flying fuck rat’s ass about us white men. Now, if it was their brother in law Raz, and Han they would be shown the back door…

    • It was designed by a committee that kept moving the goalposts every week, by underpaid and undereducated programmers in a turd-world country that just don’t give two (bleep)s – so, you’re basically correct.
      It a feature, NOT a bug. The morons (who are Gubmint Unionized workers who can’t be fired unless they screw the pooch major big time) don’t WANT the site to be easily navigated or used, it keeps us “dirt people” from using it as much as possible. I know this because I’ve been asked to program stuff as a Gubmint worker (in Portland, OR) and I was told to make it difficult but not impossible to use. Keeps the riff-raff out, y’know.

      Nope, I wouldn’t do it, so they got somebody else to do it that knew absolutely nothing about the problem nor how to “fix” it so it worked.

      Your Tax Dollars *not* at work.

  2. Not just the gov types, got an e-mail from H*** D***t Friday that my freezer I ordered before the lockdown was to be delivered Saturday. The stated delivery window came and went. Tried calling the help desk numbers for the next 4+ hours only to be put on hold and then dumped. Finally called the local store and had the appliance supervisor inform me tihat there weren’t to be any deliveries until September. Oh, by the way, that notice was put out during my time on the phone. At least my refund was faster.

  3. Any private business without a well thought out Internet site will not last very
    long, The government does not give a fuck if their website designers suck.
    It used to piss me off to no end that the Orchard Supply Hardware company
    was so FUBAR that it was easier to walk the 1-1/2 blocks to the store and
    back than do a simple keyword search.

    The site designers needed hardware experts to identify parts for the geeks.
    If I typed in a keyword for a 1/2 inch EMT coupling, it would take more time to
    find the part than solve a Chinese puzzle box. They went out of business as
    did most of the Sears stores, but the problem with Sears was a total misunder-
    standing of Internet commerce.

    The government pays no price for failure, as the billion-dollar failure of the
    Ubangi-care website showed us. I know a world-class designer who would
    have done the job for a million dollars and would have felt guilty for fucking
    the government!

  5. Early on, I sent an email with some questions about the timeliness of my State’s Covid reporting to the Director of HHS, copying the Governor. Guess what the response was … they DELETED the email addresses of EVERY Department Director AND every Department, except the Governor, from the State website. So, now the only way one can contact any department in my state is by phone.

    State government serving its citizens, good and hard.

    Sure there’s a reason. They don’t really want to pay claims because it empties the State Treasury of YOUR MONEY.
