The place I applied at doesn't like people to call, so I don't want to tick them off.
I've been thinking a lot about this and here's my plan for this year. Last year was my first year at the shop and over here to qualify for unemployment in a seasonal job, you need 910 hours, but after you get those, every year after that you only need 420 hours.
Last year I opened my claim 2 weeks early and accumulated 70 extra hours after I put in my claim, so this year I only need 350 hours to be able to open a new claim in Dec. The claim I have now stays open until then, if I should get laid off ;-)
So, if I am as sick as I was last year, after I get my 350 hours I can get a doctors note stating my condition and that I can no longer work at the shop until I've had surgery on my asophigus and get an early lay off.
This way, I would be there when they need people the most and I'd be out of there before I drop dead
