I applied for food stamps in June, 2007. On the appointment letter I selected a phone interview, in case I begin work. I begin training for a job on Aug 8th. My case worker was supposed to call me at 10:00 am on Aug 10th. She did not call, and I had taken a break at 10 to speak with her. By 10:15, I called her. My break was for only 15 mins. She then told me to be patient and she would call me back. Although it was my 2nd day training, I did as she instructed. She called back about 15 mins later, and went through the interview quickly. She had gotten behind, and I was late as well. Here's were my problem is....Some things got skipped over. She asked me if I had gotten paid yet, and I said no. I assumed she would back date it to the date I applied. I now have to go to court.
