Lemme tell ya, the aggravation factor is high right now.
When all of this Lock Down bullshit started happening, our dear governor Inslee, (spit) started issuing emergency proclamations right and left.
Nobody knew what the fuck was going on and many like me, still don’t.
Apparently the rest of the government doesn’t either.
One of the many proclamations he spewed forth with was the suspension of the job search requirement for collecting Unemployment Benefits.
One thing I think he did right. ( I know, shocker, right?)
However, this proclamation came with an expiration date.
It has since been extended but that date came and went yesterday, even though much of the state is still trying to muddle through the “Phases” of reopening for business that he has also proclaimed.
After searching and searching and searching, through the unemployment website, the news and anything else I could think of, all I found was a website link on the unemployment website saying that it got extended in June.
That link took you to the same information saying that the job search suspension ended yesterday.
Pissed off and frustrated, I called the damn Governors Office to get an answer.
Of course you have to sit through five minutes of automated instructions doing their best to deflect you back to some other resource for you to bother but after calling twice I waded through that crap and actually got to talk to something resembling a human.
I told that person that I had one simple question that I was unable to get an answer to after searching the web for over an hour.
Is the job search still optional or not?
Well, he says, it expired yesterday but it has been extended again until the 28th of this month.
I said thank you very much and hung up.
I forgot to ask if the Unemployment division was aware of this bit of information dammit.
Apparently it is too much trouble to publish this information on the Unemployment website, or anywhere else for that matter.
I bit my tongue let me tell ya but pointing out what a large group of dumbasses we have currently fucking this state up as fast as they can would have been a waste of time on the little .GOV flunkie I was talking to.
These people could fuck up a wet dream though, I’m telling ya.
