Don't worry, I'm not in trouble or anything. It's just a most unexpected turn of events...
Some time ago I was released from a job only after 3 days after they claimed I was falling asleep. It's not the case, but they didn't bother to talk to me or hear from me what the real case was (slight fatigue from a multi-hour lecture period). But because of this, my unemployment deemed me not eligible to receive anymore payments. This of course didn't help me in my year of never ending job searching. I mailed an appeal to have them reconsider and gave them a full description on what happened.
Recently, I got a response back saying that they WOULD take my appeal, and that it would be settled at a courthouse with the location, date and time to be announced. Over the weekend, I got the notice with that info. And of ALL the days they could've scheduled it, it just HAD to be Oct. 25th, my B-day.....At 9am in the morning in a city 30-40 mins away, in the direction of rush hour traffic. -_-
So yeah! Definitely not how I'd want to start the day, there. However, my optimistic dad saw it as a silver lining: "Maybe they'll AGREE with your case, and give back your unemployment. That'll be a surprise birthday present!" One can only hope at this point. ^^;
Well I hope he's right, and all goes well when we go to take care of it. Wish me luck, people!
