I can't multi quote but thank you all for your words and concern. I'm just not strong enough to leave and stay away so I don't see the point. Things are bad but not bad enough that he isn't able to make me feel better.
I thought it may have been what you were saying- surely they would know I have two school aged children since I did all that last year, and I did log in to the app and saw that it said they weren't attending school (must be default, because once I logged onto the full site all the details were correct?) so I had to call and give them a 'what-for' type thing.. he left me on hold for another 5 minutes (after holding for over 30 minutes and being cut off after an additional 10!) to find out what was wrong because on paper, I do meet all the criteria.
I'm feeling ok about it all today, just bummed. I really wish I had of realised there was a cut-off... but I suppose they don't want to advertise these things too loudly.. the more people that miss the cut off, the less they have to fork out (Actually I will get the money, but not until the second installment of the school kids bonus half way through the year.. no help to me now though!)
So very emotional today 😥
I am embarrassed and annoyed.
Neighbor just came to check on me because of my loud string of expletives. I dropped my lunch on the floor. But I must explain that I was looking forward to it since shopping on Sunday. And I was too busy acting like some kind of Katy Perry back up dancer that I hadn't cleaned the floor yet so no 3 second rule.
Toast it is!
Eta I told her there was a big spider because well some things just don't need to be said
