Hello again ATS, after getting a virus that effectively killed my computer, I have returned. I am a (former) USMC veteran of the first Gulf War, I'm
a son, brother and uncle - among other things. I live in southern Ohio, some of my 'neighbors' include...Atomic enrichment plant, Wright-Patt AFB,
G.E.'s testing area near Peach mountain, Springfield Ohio (home of drone R&D)....
Please mods...allow this post to ride
I, like so many others, have fallen on hard times. To ask for assistance from the government was the last thing I wanted to do. Being my ONLY option
remaining, I called and asked for assistance. The receptionist returned my call (they screen calls - my county office isn't THAT busy), and I
proceeded to relay the information requested. A phone interview was set up and that call was missed. My phone never rang and obviously my fault
(sarcasim). So I called into ODJFS to reschedule...during this call, as I was dispensing my info to the recptionist - she laughed at my
circumstances...LAUGHED!!! I asked to speak to the supervisor and all the receptionist could say is "...do you want a new appointment or not?..."
FOUR TIMES I had to tell this person that yes, I want to reshedule AND the supervisor. I was connected to a voice mailbox that wouldnt allow me to
leave a message, as a matter of fact - it hung up on me!
Being a human being with dignity, no matter how dire my situation is, took offense. I contacted every state office from Governor down to county
commisioners. If someone is employed by the state, has the gull to laugh at me on the phone...what does she say to others outside of ODJFS??? My
opinion is that if my situation is that hilarious, she surely told "my joke" to others...around the dinner table, standing in line at wal-mart...you
get the idea.
If anyone would like the ph# of the ODJFS to call them and lodge YOUR disapproval of my treatment, I will relay that info later.
