Appointment Adventures


The last week of August was full of appointments and frustration:

Tuesday, I had to go apply for COPA which is a health discount program. I was not able to get it on that day because I did not have enough information to prove that I qualified for COPA. (I needed to get a letter from my parents say that I lived with them and was not currently working/earning money. I also couldn’t provide them with my last paycheck stub or a letter saying I had been employed at the temp agency. This because a) I had direct deposit and therefore no last check stub and b) the temp agency would only give that information if it was directly requested by the agency or company, NOT if the former employee requested the information.) This was extremely stressful and I was a complete mess at the end of it. I was able to reschedule for Friday.
