NOT Wordless Wednesday here!

My morning was filled with angst - not mine - all DH. He still hadn't gotten his unemployment. He kept getting these letters from TN office stating how much he owed KY and they were taking his money and sending it to them. We're thinking ????? Nearly two years ago, KY gave DH an extension and after a good while, they said "Our bad, you have to give it back." So they got paid - Wish I could find the receipt for it. They said he couldn't get for a year. Again ????? So, he filed late this fall with TN, as he hadn't worked in KY. No check ????? Let the games begin! For some reason he has received two checks all told. Letters keep coming from TN saying he still owed KY. Now he was getting really BLEEPED. He talked to KY and they sent him a letter stating he didn't owe anything. A few days later TN sends another letter contending he will not get any unemployment until he pays $870! ????? He has been on the phone, hanging over my shoulder instructing me on emails, and had me worried he would go postal over all this. He even faxed a copy of KY's letter up to TN office.

Finally, it is resolved ????? TN is going to send him a couple of checks. There was some problem about his bankruptcy -  ????? (He never in his life had one) and then there was a problem that somehow his last name was spelled with XXXX on the end. They pulled his debit card for benefits and we were told he could get direct deposit for his unemployment. Went to the site to change it and we got The name and social security number do not match. I tried it 3 times. Back to the phone, they must know our number on sight by now. The woman said to try again tomorrow to change it. I told DH that I wanted Chinese for supper and nothing more about unemployment!

Meanwhile I am trying to make a cover for my second Dusty Trunk and coming up empty. I thought I would list The Pear Tree pdf for sale on the BP site. so I did that, trying to mellow out a bit. The cover can wait for tomorrow, right? I noticed that The Pear Tree was still listed on a google search. Curious, I did a regular search and found this:
 What? Is this a scam or what? Bleep! I didn't investigate much, but they had other books from other folks there. I was afraid of some nasty virus or something. I hope they are shut down. If this is/was truly a site, they should be bleeped and then bleeped some more! No wonder I never had any sales! I am never giving any of my stuff away again! I love to write but it is bleep hard work! I hope I can sleep tonight, but this puppy is so wired up now - I doubt it.

If I was a drinker - I would be passed out on the floor by now or at least mellowed out and not giving a bleep! Snot running and not caring.

So - you think I just lay around all day, being waited on and reading, HAH! I usually don't bleat it out all the time. Tonight, I can't be a nice, little, old, gray haired lady. Enjoy your day/night. I plan on taking one of my Xanax and let the world go by tomorrow.

  1. I find that type of bureaucracy with the unemployment checks so frustrating. It seems that when dealing with any government agency it never goes smoothly. As for your book dilemmas, I hope you get all of that worked out as well.

    1. Nice to 'see' you, has been a while!
      Yeah, I know, there's just so much BS in the world now and it seems as if it has been drawn to our house. It will work itself out ... or not, lol!

  4. I hope it's all sorted now. Government agencies and big business are so hard to deal with sometimes. We have had trouble with the phone company for two weeks now. And hubby is also ready to go postal. No wonder I drink!

  7. What a day! I don't know what kept you from crawling back into bed and pulling the covers over your head! Those kind of phone calls are so irritating. You would think being the federal gov. they'd have their crap together. Ugh.

    1. This is the state - all states are not created equally. That said, I don't think any of the state governments have it together. JMHO

  8. Oh my, oh no and S***!!! So...apparently government of all kinds, federal, state and local, are all so confused it's frightening!!! You have my sympathy and empathy, after having gone several rounds with one department of our government, I find I'm now going to get to go at it with another department. The right hand not only doesn't know what the left hand is doing it doesn't even know the left hand exists. Your DH sounds like my Darling Don...who would definitely have gone ballistic by now. So I'm sending you some "Brave New World" Soma in the hopes that it will take your mental pain away :)
