So our lesson for today children is when the unemployment office tells you that it will take 8 weeks....yes, eight e-i-g-h-t weeks just to make a decision as to whether or not you are eligible for unemployment you can either accept that answer or whine to the governor's office. Yes, I filled out a little form on the state of michigan's web page requesting assistance from the governor's office last week and now my decision will be taking place sometime this week instead of many weeks into the future. And hence the age old adage that the squeaky wheel gets the oil continues to hold true. A lovely, extremely helpful young lady called me, asked me a bunch of questions about my quiting my job for medical reasons (due to the fibro and the nature of the job which entailed quite a bit of heavy lifting) and then told me she needed to call my employer but I should have a decision by the end of the week. Now we can just pray that the decision is in my favor and I will have income again - about half of what I WAS making, but income all the same! Something to tide me over until I find gainful employment of a less stressful variety. The lady I spoke to did say that it sounded like I had tried everything I could before quiting, asking to go part-time or have different job duties that weren't so taxing if possible. The company I was at said part-time was not an option and neither was restructuring my job duties and since they were a small company they didn't have any positions for me to transfer into either. So as long as the company doesn't pull anything on me and claim otherwise or attempt to block my unemployment compensation I should be in the clear.

On a completely unrelated note...if you like LOTR and/or potatoes you should check this out (ganked from [livejournal.com profile] ogasnor)
