So, Poo says I should file for unemployment, something I have not done because I am prideful.

I just tried to via internet but because I worked in CA part of last year, I can't do that. Which means I have to call them. Which makes me want to cry. So I am blogging instead.

Hey, don't be too prideful! That is money that you paid in while working!

It does suck that it can't be done via internet. People are such pills to deal with. But don't cry. If you're snotting, the person on the other end of the line won't be able to understand you.

Don't let your pride get you turned around. You're a great example of who unemployment is supposed to be for. As freaky stick figure girl above said, you paid into that system. If you don't take some of that money back when you need it, you might as well just be handing it to people who don't actually want jobs. You not only want a job, but are a hard worker, cute, and fun to have around. Heck, wanna come work for me?

GM, as freak out stick figure and two dogs and a hangover said, you earned the money offered. It bothers me that they take 15% of your pay for it and make you prove you are not too lazy to find a new job to get it back.

Imagine how much you would have in the bank if instead of taking 15% for unemployment, it got put into the bank.

It will help alleviate some of the financial stress, allowing you a clearer head to make decisions.

BTW, go over to my MySpace page and look at my pics, under the Road Rash folder, to see the result of last night's mishap on my motorcycle.

Let me triple agree.

Are you too prideful to accept your paycheck when you're working? If not, then why are you worrying about taking back the money you were required to put aside for exactly this occasion?

I agree with everyone here. I've been there. Twice. With the same feelings that you have. Until a friend gave the same advice--that's why unemployment exists!

Chickie-heh. snotting. I didn't ACTUALLY cry. I just wanted to.

rebturtle-you keep trying, but Hawaii is even further from my family than Reno! and you know how I love my family! plus, I really want to make it work here.

Sensei-I wish I could do that, but the government tells me that they can handle my money better than I can.

Rich-Logically, this makes sense. But I am not always logical.

Obasso-This is the attitude that finally convinced me to call

Thanks guys, for your wonderful advice, as always.
