    What about me???


    What about me? I was unemployed for almost a year, landed a job that I thought would be permanent, but it turned out they just needed seasonal help and fired me after 6 months when things slowed down. They then had the nerve to tell the unemployment agency that I quit. I have been unemployed AGAIN now for 3 months with NO income, waiting for the appeals process to get around to me, so I can tell them that I didnt quit my job, why would I?  I know what its like trying to survive on $250 a week!  Meanwhile I have applied to 94 jobs, from flipping burgers, delivering pizza, retail sales, to office work and management which I am experienced and best at. I have a wife, no kids, I drive a car from 1992, and rent a house. I cant even afford a full tank of gas, let alone a hamburger.  I dont have cable TV, I dont have a cell phone. Ive always paid taxes and claimed 0... Ive never broken the laws or did any drugs... What about me???
