First check on this job

June 20th, 2019 at 05:23 am

I just saw the deposit of the first check of job. it was only for 38.5 hours as we cut a day short when the place had zero access for us due to poor planning.

as I finish up week 2 I really see this was a mistake to take this one. Anyway my money goes into 3 accts and will take a couple of checks to get back to levels I want.
After taking this job and being miserable I paid a bunch of things that depleted my accounts to below my Normal comfort level. Even though it was suppose to make me want to stay on job it did not help much. I paid enough on principle on house #1 so regular payments will take it down another $2000 level by end of year. added to retirement and took all savings accounts up a bit.

Was talking to co-workers whose lives are very different as they were desperate for check to hit their accts. They talked about changing direct deposit to their wives accts so they can curb their spending. I told them the place can split the deposit up to (6 )accts. and said I did that. I just do not understand how they can miss it as it is clear on the site we use for paycheck info.
I clearly do not get their world. Now they want everyone to go in to buy lunch for whole group. I do not want to be cheap but I see this as a headache and expense I simply do not want. Live in fear this will end up with all others "forgetting" their wallet or picking some expensive choice since they are spend every dime kind of people.

    This place of employment sounds like a nightmare.

    As for people not realizing about the information on paycheck info, don't be surprised. People often don't pay attention to stuff. I used to do professional development for the district and I learned quickly that people don't pay attention to things, even when it is important. Or they hear or read what they want to hear or read.

    I assume you take your lunch to work. If so, I would beg off on buying lunch and just say you brought your lunch and if you don't want to bring up the money issue, then say you are particular about certain foods.
