I had no idea that initiating and maintaining one’s Unemployment Insurance was such a process! Filling out bi-weekly forms (that you should only send within certain date ranges), maintaining online resumes, accumulating job references and attending meetings to keep the benefits coming smoothly, is a job in itself. Fortunately, a friend helped me with the forms and filled me in on what I should expect at the meetings so I wasn’t too overwhelmed, but they sure don’t make it easy. Which I suppose is the point since they want you off of those benefits as soon as possible. We’ll see how long bot (and myself!) can live off of them. At least I have the benefit of the JEFbot webcomic supplementing my income but bot has no such fallback. (As of yet!)

So any of you BOTreaders on Unemployment? Did you find the process as convoluted as I did?
