in ¿Confused?

Recently I filed for IU because i was fired. I had my phone interview and started recieve benefits after certifying. In the process of looking for work which the EDD requires. I went to an old temp agency because I was still currently in there system even though i stopped working for them because i started the job i was fired from. So they sent me on assignment. When i got there i asked the supervisor how long did he think he would need our help. He replied a few days. Me knowing this was not a permanent solution to my problem. I called off because i had interviews for permenant positions elsewhere instead of finishing the rest of the 2 or 3 day assignment that again was going to leave me unemployed. So the edd sent me a letter stating I quit the temp agency and i need another interview to determine eligibility. Im confused because they reason i filed unemployment had nothing to do with this company in the first place. I was fired and that was the reason i was recieving benefits. Ive been calling the temp agency for over 2 months and they havent sent me on a assignment but also stating i quit so they wont pay out my benefits. Im basically stuck not working and not receiving benefits. Was i suppose to be surviving off the temp agency even though they have rarely ever gave me 40hrs a week? Why are they stopping my benefits over a assignment that was only suppose to last a few days anyway. Was i better off just not going to back to the agency and looking for work as the edd requires? Was i suppose to accept the temp work and not try to go to my interviews for permanent employment? It just sucks how they do you smh

    You should have finished the assignment til the end. It was only a couple of days, what is the big deal? You could have continued your unemployment, all you had to do was list their pay on your worksheet. And after a couple of days, you could have continued looking for a more permanent position. You burned your bridges.
