Strangely Defeated

Today I had the unfortunate experience of going to the unemployment office and filing for unemployment. 

Can I just say what a miserable place that is?

No one was happy, hardly anyone smiled.

The employees were either very rude, condescending, or just plain unfriendly. 

I got there at the crack of dawn, before they opened.  It still took me two hours to fill out 2 pieces of paper, give them my separation papers and fill out a 10 page application on the computer. 

I came home feeling strangely defeated.



  1. Oh, those places are horrible. Sorry you had to do it.

  2. I’m sorry it has you feeling so defeated when yesterday you were so content. Try not to let that horrid place get you down.

    As for being a SAHM, the budgeting can be hard but it is so worth it. Good luck making your decision.

  3. I’m sorry MyFriend.
    *Giant Hug*

  4. Sucks you couldn’t do it online and avoid all those people. *shudder*
    Getting let go is such an undignified thing, but all the “after” details involved makes it a humiliating process. 😦

  5. We have had our fun with the unemployment offices too. Sorry you had to deal with them too. Good luck with the remainder of your pregnancy!

  8. Thank you for visting Whatever He Says, Rose, and I pray God’s blessing on you in your job search. It’s been a rough day.

  9. I hope tomorrow is a better day for you. May God lead & guide in your life!
