America — the Depressed?

No, I’m not depressed. I’m spitting nails!

I’ve been madly applying for all kinds of jobs for 15 years, but don’t somehow seem to get them.

So I’ve been on Food Stamps: that is, I’m subsidized for $195/mo., or 2 weeks’ food (in NYC, at least).

Now they tell me that my renewal application was received on May 17 instead of May 15, and that that somehow gives them the right to deprive me of $400! Not that there was any mention of a deadline in the paperwork . . .

My next payment will be October 4. So I will have $0 for food in August and September. Lovely.
