Default Well, that was cool!

So...imagine my shock and amazement when I get the mail today and find out my unemployment got approved! It's not a ton of money, but it's a whole lot more than the $60.00 per month I was looking at until the hockey season starts again in late October. If I could do it without ruining my knee further, I'd do a happy dance!

I just figured it out. My income will now exceed my expenses by darn near $50.00 per month!

(expenses being my phone and personal items...if it wasn't for my mother, I'd have been living in a cardboard box down by the river months ago)

Surely you should start repaying your mother, say by $50 a week?

I'm not eligible for disability because I am "employable" in areas other than my chosen industry. They do not take into consideration that no one, especially in Michigan, is going to hire someone on crutches with a pre-existing injury requiring major surgery when there are 150 people applying for each position available.

This is why I stay out of political debates, particularly when they concern health care reform or welfare.

Hey Sarge! Glad to hear that someone came to their senses and gave you what you deserved! At least now you can keep 'body and soul' together until you can get back on your feet again. Way to go girl!!

I have a friend in that position, high rise wondow cleaner, fell and smashed his heel, by doctors orders cannot do any physical labour any more but is not qualified for a desk job, yet they say he is capable... stupid governments.

Congrats though, that extra $50 a month could get you 2 lovely feasts at MaDonalds!! Yeah, I know, my priorities are all messed up

Hey, good to read that your S.S. payments have been approved. Money alone doesn't buy happiness, it's true. But it does, perhaps buy a better standard of misery.
[Costs -$50.00= Misery; Costs + $50.00 = Happiness. Old Jungle Saying]
Take care and good luck, Tibbsy.
