Luckily, no, it seems that it's fine if it's just a day late. Not so sure if it had gone on longer though.

Yeah, exactly, which is what annoyed me about the fact that it was due on Saturday, so of course no weekend hours to call the agent.



Grind... When you're trying to do a final dungeon in part of a game, the original end game content no less -- *cough* and it has take you and a friend years to finally get there because you're rather casual players -- and the game announces an emergency maintenance shut down in 30 min and that's never going to be long enough so you'll have to go back and do it all over later. Yay.

Plus the "free" month of membership via a gift card from a family member is soon running out so now it's just losing time and the ability to even do that dungeon without having to buy it via game currency to get back in.

finding an online job

bills

having trouble with Microsoft excel

getting stir crazy

the freaking heat in my miserable house with little to know air circulation

having to rely on other people to get stuff done (man oh man if I could be a one woman army and had basic carpenter skills)

Actually this is the worst. I hate relying on other people for anything or asking for help especially when they say "yes" to helping you and then it either:

a) never comes up again.

b) It gets put off for an obnoxious amount of time while you wait and are stuck to go forward until they lend a hand

c) You feel like a pest bringing it up

Pushy and snobbish people in positions of authority who abuse it by treating others differently based on petty biases and dislike. So much bs, but even more so when they bring up "lack of respect" in front of higher ups, and then when you try to call them on it, somehow it's all on you. Respect works both ways.....

God yes, esp 'c' as feeling like a burden often makes me resist asking. Also:
d) Those people who want to insert their preferences/ideas into something, instead of just helping make your idea come true, and if you oppose then they don't want to help anymore.



Grind... Figures that now we finally get some nice warmth happening we're punished with high humidity.

Do what I do, send 'em dick pics. That'll fix their wagon!

It's not mine, but they don't need to know. If they wanna think I have a goose penis, let 'em. The whole point of the exercise is that they never bother me again, and it's guaranteed to work!

Why does state stuff always have to be stupid and/or a fight..? Talking the unemployment in this case. Naturally, since the claim I entered for last week was beyond my benefit I can't have it for that week, but I entered it anyhow thinking if I skip a week they might close it. So of course, because it was too much, they close it anyhow. I know I probably should have gotten them on the phone, but was kind of running late on the time to get it submitted and good luck getting them on the phone.

I had hunted for quite a while for info on the situation where if you made too much one week but then would qualify for it the following week...what do you do? But of course for my state there is just no info about that. Chances are I'd qualify for it again for this week, but now I'll have to fight with them to get this thing reopened. And how many days will it take me to get a human being on the phone.... Grr.

If someone's unemployment is open for however many weeks... can't it just stay open for those weeks and simply skip paying out for any weeks you had earnings higher than your minimum? Or does that make too much sense.

It's the government's way of trying to avoid paying people at all, of course.

Not really a gear grinder per se, but had to put this somewhere. So, hubby is in the process of trying to qualify for a kidney transplant. He has had his first two interviews, via phone conference calls, and tomorrow will be going to Dallas for a CT to see if there are any problems that might bar him from getting it, like cysts, or whatever. We are very anxious, and I had wanted to go with him, but apparently my request to have off was either forgotten or simply denied, and I was never informed. Either way, it looks like I won't get to go with him to find out the results. Which sucks, because he is leaving today after his treatment, so I won't see him until tomorrow night. Going to be very nerve-wracking sitting at home all night, and being at work tomorrow without knowing what's going on.

Wow, what the heck... I really think any manager should be willing to cut someone a break when it comes to important family things like that. Eesh!

Best of luck and best wishes to you both. Hope the stress ends up well worth it and his scans turn out great.

Well, update- his scan showed some sort of vascular issues in his lower abdomen, which may require surgery before he could have a transplant, and in addition, he is on hold for an open wound on the bottom of his amputated (half) foot. So, until those things are cleared up, it's a no-go.

Sorry to hear that. Was wondering yesterday how that all had turned out. Hope those hurdles don't take long to clear.

Last week of the bonus "pandemic pay" so of course they cut back on hours, and this is of course when I'm being sent a lot of product I've been waiting to come so I can finally get a lot of the remaining missing stuff restocked finally post-lock down, so yeah, real nice... just barely able to make a dent in it. Cute.

If it's through eBay or some other third party I'd contact them soon, imo.

Last time that happened to me I'm not sure the seller even mailed my item. That's not to say they intentionally didn't, but I think sellers who mail out a lot can use a printed sheet that the post office scans that collectively checks in a lot of packages to save time? So maybe it was on that list, but not actually present? So yeah, I'd check on that.





edit: Netflix grind... that it can be sooo long between show seasons. I want to watch the new season of Dark, but that show was so complex, what with the time hopping and constant back and forth and a web of multiple characters involved with multiple versions of each of them in different time periods, that even watching a few recaps on YouTube didn't help, so I'm finding myself just rewatching the first two seasons again just to remember what the heck even happened. >.< lol

I bought them from a comic shop in new york which I have used 5 other times. UPS claims it can take up to 10 days before usps gets it or something like that. Its never taken this long

Huh. Good luck then, I hope it shows up or updates soon. Maybe this whole pandemic stuff is still slowing shipping down in some cases?
