Long story short, since I know my loyal readers are waiting in suspense.
Finally spoke with my rep, who claimed that I had submitted a claim (and been paid) for a week that crossed over into my last position. So then she launched into the Texas code, launching words at me like “misdemeanor” and “felony.” I can’t remember how that happened, other than an accident.
So they ate my first check from this new claim (except for about $28 — guess I got a raise), and I eventually started getting my payments.
And yes, it’s mostly going for diapers, wipes and all forms of baby-fied yogurt.
