Oh my fucking God ! I cannot believe that I have to file for unemployment. There was a problem at work that shut down the office for God knows how long and I cannot be without a pay check for even a week. So now I am jumping through the hoops required to make sure I can get my unemployment. It is going to be about half of what I am used to making but half is better than nothing at all. My boss said that as soon as the problems are worked out we will be back to work, but that it could take as many as three months to fix.
Unfortunately he didn’t elaborate on what exactly the problem is and I am a little annoyed by that. I hope it isn’t something illegal because I would hate to have to go to court. I have never noticed anything like that before so I am going to assume it isn’t. By boss said to keep in touch with him weekly, just in case. I hope whatever this is blows over very quickly, but I somehow don’t think that is going to happen. I will just have to cross my fingers and hope for the best.
