Something’s odd or changed with the good ol’ Michigan Automated Response Voice Interactive Network: This time it told they’d send me my check when they’ve been automatically depositing my money. (But I need the money deposited into my little debit card account NOW! Not that I’m impatient or anything.) And it said I was still certified. (I had wondered about that; it’s getting towards the end of my initial 26-week unemployment claim).

But the most interesting part of this week’s MARVIN call was at the end: It said to “call back if you’re still unemployed.” Did it miss me last week? Does MARVIN know something about my future that I don’t?
