Ten months ago I was laid off from a job I truly loved, that I have held for ten years, with the promise that when the workload improved, I would be recalled. Two weeks ago I learned that they do not plan to rehire me, and my unemployment benefit has been depleted, and I must look for work immediately, starting with a state-designed program meant to improve one's employability and job-search skills. I discovered that everyone who goes on unemployment in this state is put into this program immediately, but somehow I fell through the cracks in the system. So with no income I am commuting to a neighboring town for this silly (in my opinion) program, and yesterday my car broke down ten miles from home, and I had to be towed, and then pay a fortune for the repair. I have this fantasy of running into my old boss, who always was very pleasant to me, until he fired me. He will smile and say "How is everything?" and I will tell him the truth about what it's like to live in poverty and have to find a new job at the age of 62, thank you very much!
Thanks for letting me vent.
