It’s a snowy and windy Sabbath here in Bagwine, Ohio and in my heart its raining.
How can that be, you ask?
I got a notice from unemployment that there is a problem with my claim. That’s just fucking great.
I didn’t get any unemployment last week because I reported what I made during the week ending December 5th.
I knew that I wouldn’t be getting any because of that, but this morning I see a message from the UE office that say there is a question about my claim in general because of that.
Kill me now and leave my rotting corpse in a snow drift where the stray kittens and curious children can feast upon my remains for three months as my body should be relatively well-preserved through the cold Ohio winter.
You see, my employment ended on November 30th. I filed my claim on December 1 AND reported what I made up to that point for the week ending December 5.
Unfuckingbelieveable…Who knew that reporting income would send them into such a tizzy?
In an email to them this morning, I explained the timelines of my filing and hopefully it will straighten things out and I will receive benefits this week in a timely manner. As I said…
I didn’t expect any last week, but I didn’t realize that reporting my fucking income as I should, would put a wrench into the overall claim.
Pray for me that common sense prevails.
On a happier note…
My son Ryno scored his first ever points as a varsity player for his High School basketball team last night.
While his team was thoroughly crushed by former State Champion, Dayton Christian, he managed to sink three 3-pointers for a total of 9 points.
I was all giddy because when he called me last night I could hear the happiness and excitement in his voice.
So, at least there’s that. Also…
In case you missed it, Thursday night/Friday morning Jayman and I had a rousing Radio-Thon for Ryno on I’m With Stupid.
The guest stars were at the top of their celebrity game; Google phone tried to screw us again, but the celebration and electricity could not be silenced.
Here’s to Dour Mike, Dianne, and Dianne’s new love interest Drive-By Mikey, for calling in and providing scintillating conversation.
You can listen below and re-live the excitement:
Have a wonderful day…I’m going to spend mine fretting about unemployment.
