shock

It is going to be a fucking miracle if I don’t go into labor right now. Fucking, fucking miracle.

I got denied unemployment. The lady on the phone said disqualfied for two fucking years. FOR WHAT? WHAT THE FUCK DID I DO? That i misunderstood the ladyon the phone who originally called me? Once I realized that I hadn’t filed my thing online I went and did it. talked to them on the phone about it. Told them it was a mistake.

The appeals people won’t talk to me because I dont have it in writing yet. I don’t know what to do. In order to appeal they will have a meeting where all parties must be present.

I”m leaving in one week from today. I am almsot 34 weeks pregnant. I CANT BE PRESENT.

I don’t know what to do. This move is going to take every last penny that we have. We’re already selling our house. Moving where it is cheaper. And now some person is going to go and play God with this and not give me money for what I assume is a mistake? I tried to remedy it.

I can’t type anymore. I”m too fucking upset. I’m sure the grammar and spelling police are having a field day with this one. You happy? Something else bad has happened to me. I can’t breathe, i cant move because the baby is hurting my ribs.

What a happy day. I’m hysterically crying and i have to leave to go to the doctors now.

    SJ,
    It’s been a few years, but once I applied for unemployment and was initially denied after I had moved out of state. I appealed and they arranged a telephone interview through the sister agancy in the state and city I had moved to. THey had someone there to verify my identy and witness my testimony and I was granted benefits (with a 2 week penalty) after that. It was a pain, but it was worth it in the end.
    Try not to lose your temper with them. I know they are just state employees (which I am too) but they can be your friend. Ask if there is some way you could “appear” via teleconference or other net meeting type technology.
    This is just one level of complexity that weeds out the lightweights. If you insist on being accomodated for the hearing, the other party may fail to show. Don’t forget to keep the discrimination card up your sleeve. Some employers unload pregnant employees if they can so their benefit costs don’t take a hit. Good luck.

    Screw it, go to TX and apply. You moved because you were fired, not the other way. Can not hurt to try and or get a lawyer. But once you move they will stop paying anyways and you will have to refile. Since you are moving to find work you should have no problem.

    Gawd. This isn’t what you want to hear but I’m so sorry. My fiance lost his job last year and we thought we were playing by the rules of unemployment too….denied. We were denied and that was the end of it. Nobody wanted to even guide us on what to do next. But the losers of the world can sit on unemployment for years collecting that cash, while people who are looking for other jobs get denied left and right. It just isn’t fair. I shouldn’t have read this so early in the morning. What a pisser.
