Today I received my first unemployment check, and it was deposited directly into the bank. This means I removed some of the excitment of getting the mail from my day. It also means that I don’t have to go to the bank once a week. It is good to have set errands to get me out of the house, although I have done fine so far.
My Unemployment Check is for $442, but once taxes are taken out, it is only $371. I guess it probably would have been better to get more money now, and pay more taxes next year, but I just didn’t want the hassle. We’ll see if I change my mind.
