After waiting 6 weeks for the $$ to come, after price-shopping for everything under the sun, and going without "extras" like razors and burrito shells, and after numerous fights about $$.......SO's unemployment checks came in. 6 weeks worth. $1200. I know it is not really all that much, but I'M HAPPY!! Now I can bring all of the bills up to date that I had to put on hold. Also, SO can pay to get his drivers license reinstated. And, of course, back Child support.
The checks were printed on 9/9/09. I would like to say this was a coinsidence, but I did participate in a mass "money cleansing" prayer one of my friends sent me. The prayer is below. call me crazy since normally I just trash these emails but hey! Something happened.
Then we are looking at the checks and they have this 8 question questionnaire. The usual questions: Did you try to find work? Did you actually work? Did you receive money in exchange for work? Did you sit on your ass and play video games some days? --> (points to SO). So, SO tells me that this was the purpose of the interview on Tuesday. I then asked him, "You know, I told you to go online to answer this questionnaire 5 weeks ago. Did you?" He just gave me a dumb stare.
All this time I thought his job was giving him hell, but now I know it was his lazy sorry behind. It's ok things worked themselves out. Now, I wonder how we are gonna cash these checks since SO's driver's license is expired?
EDIT: That poor sun in the mood section is really getting a workout!
