I'm a Statistic

Well, I am now officially a number in the system!! I just knew, when I thought that I could do all the filing online, that there would have to be some hang-ups. I mean, how can anything that has to do with a gov't . entity go smoothly?

So, I log on and type in/create my passwords etc. and then as I sit back and prepare to navigate my way through unemployment bliss it begins to go awry. I spent the next 30 minutes going back and forth between two pages. I would sign in and use password and then it would go to the " begin my account" page and then it would tell me that I didn't even have an account. Then I would fill out all the pages and re-start an account and then it would take me back to the page that said I didn't need to do that page because I already had an account!! So I went back and forth like this for 30 minutes until I finally called and did it with a human on the other end of the receiver. We got it done together in less than 15 minutes.

I am now on my way to a "waiting week" and then the sticker shock when I get that paycheck that will be 40% of what I used to make. Sigh, well with a new class starting I guess that I will take advantage of this opportunity and make the best of it before I begin to get all freaked out about another job/or part-time job. Aside from the coffee mega giant there are other things that I can take advantage of, so I'm not freaking out.

the button pushing will come easier.Just remember to hit 'weekly claim',not 'restart claim' every week,and to check your 'view correspondence inbox' once or twice a week.
