The excuse every time is "We're processing four times the people through here that we used to."
They've got a room full of people needing jobs there, every day. HIRE SOME MORE HELP!
Now that's an idea! Maybe I'll suggest it next time I go to the unemployment office. The local UE office here is TERRIBLE! It's like watching a monkey try to pull it's head out of it's a**. These people couldn't find their butts with both hands and a hunting dog. You go there and it's hurry up and wait and wait and wait some more. It's as bad as when I was in the Air Force. Worse maybe. At least in the Air Force there was someone that knew what they were doing. I can't remember how many jobs I've applied for through them (where you fill out the application and they hand it in for you) and I've not heard back from ANY of them! I'm not even entirely sure that they're actually sending the applications where they need to go. What a joke. The NC Employment Security Commission...your tax dollars at work
History is much like an endless waltz. The three beats of war, peace, and revolution continue on forever.
Inter Arma Enim Silent Leges - Cicero
If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen. - Samuel Adams
