Today, EDD (the unemployment people) sent me a note, telling me that they didn't send me a check during the one-week no-money-for-you waiting period at the end of march. That's not actually a surprise, as it was during the announced one-week no-money-for-me waiting period, the one I distinctly recall being told about at the end of march. I wondered whether it was good form to send them a letter telling them that they had sent me a letter to tell me they hadn't sent me a check. I decided that if I was going to be a parasite on the welfare system then that was far too much work. Especially if they weren't paying me for it.
However, if they send me a letter to say I didn't send them a letter about them sending me a letter to say they didn't send me a check... Well then, perhaps I'll rethink my position.
