Not Surprised

So yesterday I went to get my last check, and after waiting in line for 30 minutes, was told that the checks didn't come today, they were having issues with them, and they would possibly by there tomorrow. I was eager to see if they were going to fix my check for those 31 hours they owed me, on top of my last earnings.

So today i go in there, stand in line, the lady brings my check and asks for my work badge of course... one of my ex supervisors come out and says if i have any problems then i need to call some "Steve" guy. I have never met "Steve." I take a look at my check while he is standing there, and it is still short the 31 hours I complained about 2 weeks ago that should have been taken care of 4 weeks ago. He said that he knew that they had a problem a few weeks ago, and that i needed to call him to make sure I got it taken care of.... okay.... so the problem you told me you would take care of, didn't get taken care of, and just now you are telling me to call some guy named "Steve." And thus we can see another reason why I quit. Maybe we will have to take this a step farther if I call this guy and don't get a promising response.

So other than that, the only updates I got regarding my applications for employment is two denial emails from a company any average joe could get hired at. However, its the weekend, and hopefully next week will bring some interviews or more days on unemployment. I have faxed in some paperwork to the unemployment agency and I should hear from them soon, so I hope that one of the things I have applied to responds to me soon as my savings will not last forever. I guess its back to the drawing board, filling out more applications. I am starting to wonder why no one is calling me back if my resume looks so decent. Maybe one of my references is not giving me a good reference? Who knows.
