Thanks for the hearts!!!!!!!!!!

Can I just melt down for a minute?

I, like many people in our state, was pushed into early retirement under Snyder's "break the union" stand. I got over it and took my pension, which I am grateful for, and then found 2 small substitute jobs. I am a sub librarian for my city, which I love and it's my profession. I was talked into trying being a sub for a local high school. I do love that too. It's different, but in a rewarding way. Both gig jobs laid me off and did all the paperwork. It's not a lot of money and I do not qualify for the bonus money. I am cool with that.

I was rolled over from the December cut off and was sent a letter telling me to log in and certify or I would lose my claim. I did. I was told I qualified for the extension. OK, great. Now I am being told I owe the extension money back and I need to resubmit my claim. Ok, .......you can't talk to anyone, anywhere. I just now, 2 minutes ago, lost my claim because I could not answer questions I had no answer to. I am literally sick to my stomach. Both places of employment are closed due to Covid spikes. I have been asked to sub in a closed building as patrons can pick up items curbside. I do claim my pay and I do enjoy getting to leave this house for a couple of hours a couple of times a month.

Here is my theory: People at the state level are all dead and computers have taken over.....Yes I do like sci fi.

Thanks for listening. So upsetting!
