Unemployment

Elliptical, 65 minutes.

When I got laid off I applied for unemployment, just 'cause I thought that's what you're supposed to do, even thought I got quite a few weeks in severance pay, I didn't think I'd actually be eligible to receive unemployment. But, it turns out I am, like a few hundred dollars a week. So I guess I'll take it, even though I've accepted another job which I start in a couple weeks. I do feel a little guilty; technically, I don't need the money, of course, I can always use it, but it does seem a little unsporting of me to take it, but the system says it's legal, and I have paid into for like 23 years. And, just the fact that I'm feeling a little guilty about it makes me feel a little better about taking it.

Hey, you've paid into it, so don't feel guilty. That's what it's there for.
