What's So Funny About Unemployment?

A funny little unemployment blog for your (un) enjoyment

I’m officially still unemployed

with one comment

I just finished filing my second claim for unemployment within a year.

It’s official: I’m still unemployed in the State of Michigan.

It was tense for a moment. I thought reporting that I was substitute teaching would mess up my new claim. However, I reported my pittance of teaching income (I had little choice. The school district taxes my wages and it’ll catch up to me sooner or later) and the system still approved my claim. I still have to go to the Michigan Works! office today to get my paperwork stamped and put my resumé in their system (it’s there already, but whatever).

I didn’t expect to still be unemployed now. Last year, I thought I’d have a full-time job sooner or later. Preferably sooner. However, sooner turned into later before I knew it.

  1. Hello there,

    Just stumbled across your blog this morning and thought I would say thanks for the humor in these tough times. I gave up a job as an account manager working for JP Morgan Chase in Phx to move home and help take care of my mother. I thought for sure that I would find a job pretty quick due to previous experience sooner or later. As you stated before, sooner turned to later pretty quick. This is now my 6th month looking for a job and humor continues to keep my attitude positive.

    Good luck in your search and thank you again.
