    They didn't tell me about that program until after my benefits were about to expire. Then the Unemployment people said oh, you should have applied for Training Benefits to go to school and keep drawing unemployment checks. Great, sign me up. Oh, no -- you had to apply for that when you first started getting unemployment.

    But how was I supposed to know that at the end of my eligibility period I would still be unemployed and in need of benefits?

    Shrug.

    No answer. I just should have known somehow.

    This circus of hoops we must jump through to get basic subsistence benefits is ludicrous, and if anyone of any importance had to go through such a bullshit process, it would be changed immediately. As it is, we are powerless to change things.
