Is it Saturday?

Wow! You would think with me being out of work and all that I would have tons of time on my hands to write for my blog. It seems to be just the opposite. My calendar is filling up and my to-do list is growing. I don't even know what day it is today.

On Thursday, us "dislocated workers" (how is that for a term?) had a meeting with the Unemployment office and Job Services. All I can tell you is that I am more confused than ever. First off, we did not even get the letter stating that we were signed up for this meeting in our exit packet. You see….from what I hear we were not supposed to be let go until the end of next month but to make the paper work easier on the company they decided to lay off the seven of us in my group. But since it was all done so quickly, our packets did not include all the info it should have.

So back to Thursday's meeting. It was supposed to be from 1:00 to 4:00. Lots of paperwork was filled out and I did not even have time to read it all. We were just told to follow along and fill it out and sign it and hand it over. Come to find out the one gal with Unemployment gave us totally WRONG info and when we questioned her, she got VERY defensive. So we did it like she told us to and now all of our Unemployment claims are being denied.

Then there was the TEST. They told us we were to take a test. A test that was supposed to take about 2 hours to complete. We started the test around 4:00 (when the meeting was supposed to end) and then we were interrupted to fill out yet more forms. So of course, when 5:00 came around I was not finished. Who knew that an SAT type test was required? I have not taken Geometry since 10th grade!! On Monday, I have to go back and finish the test. I am NOT looking forward to it at all!
