I hate the North Carolina unemployment office. My area got hit by hurricane Florence over 2 months ago. My work was closed for almost a month and is still recovering. So they told us to file a disaster unemployment claim. So I did. I had to file online because their call center was always backed up. I've never had to file unemployment or go through a natural disaster so I had no idea what to do, and my job told us to talk with NC Employment Security with questions about filing. I filed it, tried to follow their instructions, but it was confusing. It was asking me to fill out weekly job contacts and submit a resume, even though I didn't need a new job. I still had a job, I just had to wait until the building reopened. So I tried calling but I was on hold for an hour each time. After waiting for an hour, it hung up on me. I didn't lose signal, I didn't hang up, their phone system just released the call with no warning. One time it asked if I wanted a call back, I said yes. When I got the callback, no one was there. I couldn't hear anything. I waited for over 2 minutes, repeatedly asked for a response and if they had their phone muted. Nothing. So I hung up. I'm sick of it. My sister in law told me she finally got through, the rep was rude and told her she missed answering some questions. Where those questions are, I don't know because their instructions on what to do freaking suck. I'm just going to email them now and hope it's not too late to get my money. I filed 2 months ago, it's not my fault they're understaffed and can't give better instructions to do it yourself. Why not just record instructions on what to do when you file, and have an option to press for that? Instead of just saying the fastest and easiest way to file is online. I know that you dumb machine. What I don't know is why this stupid freaking form is acting like I'm actually unemployed and no one can pick up the damn phone.

I felt confident a first, but now I'm not so sure. I don't think he wants me as much as I do him. He said, I love you first, but I think he doesn't want to say it anymore. I love him too, and happy to tell him and show him that. Sometimes I wish we never said I love you to each other. I think as long as you as display that you love someone, you don't need to say it. Just my thoughts.
When Dunkin Donuts didn’t offer Peppermint Mocha this winter I actually got mad at the new Cinnamon Bun flavor because it ‘replaced’ the one I liked. I am a grown ass 39 year old man.
I don't get why so many people love The Office (US). I couldn't even get through the first episode. It was just so cringy and I didn't think it was funny. My boyfriend said it gets better but I don't want to struggle through the first season or skip it. There are plenty of shows that are watchable from the first to the last episode. I'll just watch one of those instead. Or try the UK version since I've heard it's better.
Im a huge shut in and super anti-social. Im trying to change cause I have a 6 month old and I dont want to be like me. I want to have friends, have habits he likes to do outside so hes outside and be happy. Hes my world and I hate seeing him upset.
i am usually that person at housepartys that sits alone and awaits the time where its reasonable to leave. couple of days ago it was my bestfriends girlfriends birthday and i made myself responsable for the playlist until that girl from university i barely knew came up to me and complimented me on the songs i was playing. it was just after midnight and we started to talk about my band and music we used to listen when we were teenagers. people left and the hosts started to tidy up the place. we just stayed, showing each other songs we liked until our friends made us leave at quarter to five. now i am sitting in my room, where i am supposed to study for a huge exam and cant focuse at all. i would really like to ask her to go out with me, but i am kinda afraid of rejection. she is super pretty and confident and that scares me.
why are people willing to spend tens of thousands of dollars to go to college or university, no guarantee of a job. or are willing to spend 1000$ on video games with no advantage at all to your life. sure its fun. but no real value... but when you offer them a program with coaches, material, and all the tools necessary to get totally out of debt, accumulate more income and have better succes in your relationships for 250$ and they tell you thats way too expensive, it's not worth their money or time, say things like 'what if it doesn't work' or 'get away from me with that scam.' people are so flawed in their thinking its unreal
I do not like fashion, I lost all my overweight to wear a, equally flamboyant and pseudo-militaristic, doublebreasted greatcoat with an oversized open collar, but I neither want to run around in a corny "steampunk"-coat nor do I want to wear a literal SS-Uniform. But worst of all, these flamvoyant coats are quite fashionable this year - but only for women.
Back in the 90s, people of all creeds, cultures and ethnicities lived happily and efficiently together where I live, but now, through "social justice" and forced "muliticulturalism", a cancerous, or to use a more modern term, "toxic" tribalism starts to form on all sides through the idea that there are problems to be fought - which didn't exist to begin with. These social justice warriors simply ruin everything. Now fuck ideology, people just love to complain.
