Two days ago, I got a letter informing me that in four days I have an appointment with the agency from which I get subsidized rent, for the purpose of verifying I am still eligible, along with a list of about 2,000 documents they want me to bring. In four days.
Do you know why
people with disabilities on low incomes only get four days notice for
things like this? Because it is assumed that since you are disabled and
poor, you have no life. Therefore they do not need to give you more
than four days notice. Surely you have nothing to do between now and
then but track down all those documents. If you do have other things to
do, just don't do them because they can't be important things, anyway.
The people at the agency, now, they are real people with real lives and
important things to do, so you should be happy to be at their beck and
call. But you are poor and disabled, so you have no life and nothing
important to do, ever.
Yeah, I'm angry. It's just disrespectful. I don't like being treated that way and I don't like the fact that I really have no choice.
