  1. I would wager lawyers are at the root of this.

    This sounds like a very big number to me, maybe I'm just naive. "at least twenty shoplifters a shift"
  4. I was away from the Web for a while, sometimes work dominates my world. Your above quote says it all brother.
  5. There was a time when I was very hopeful. But, I think the last time I felt like the world was going to turn out well was when Anwar Sadat and Menachem Begin smiled big and shook hands. I try not to be pessimistic, but sometimes it's hard.
  6. When I was only nine, we put a man on the Moon. Honestly, flying cars are the sort of thing I expected by now.
  7. When I was much younger, this is not how I pictured The U.S.A. in 2019.
  8. I think this will make for some interesting reading...

    Hey mr-l

    Thank you, I do appreciate it!

    So that's how they do that....

  12. Got an email from my boss, she had the same issues with her pay and called payroll like I did; with the same “you are wrong...blah...blah..blah..”. I spoke to her later today, she basically said “as long as you are not being under paid it’s not a pay problem.” I’m tempted to just fudge my time sheets to an even 80 hours per two weeks, but as Srgt. Hulka pointed out “DO NOT fudge your time sheets. Future jobs are priced out on what time you spend on current jobs, and how much it costs the company to complete them. You fudge your time sheets, the company loses money on future jobs.” So at this point I’m not going to worry about it. I’ll keep some extra money in case I need to repay this (it will soon be a lot of money). What I think will happen is that half a year from now there will be a company wide email claiming that, by no fault of their own, there has been a payroll discrepancy so your pay statements may be a little funky for the next pay period. They are a good company and I think when they discover the problem, they will “eat” the overage and I can keep doing the Alfred E. Neuman “What me worry”. My only true concern is that I don’t look like I was trying to do something under handed, the extra money is nice but I am far more concerned with being in good standing with my employer. Happy new year, Mr. L
  13. I think this is where I'm at, well said TomJefferson.
