Is It That Difficult?

clockI have to clock in and out each and everyday I work. Should I be out, I have to turn in my leave slips whether it is for sick leave, administrative leave, or vacation time. Now ever since October I have been taking anywhere from 1-3 days off a week to use up the excess vacation time I have racked up during the year since I’m not known for taking vacation days since #1 I have no where to go and #2 no money to go anywhere. Well, I should not have been surprised when I was checking the amount of my paycheck this week when it was shorted a days pay. Yep, the person who does the payroll conveniently “misplaced” my leave slip. My opinion? She trashed it. This isn’t the first time it has happened either. Now what ticks me off the most is the fact that she didn’t bother to call to see why I didn’t have my full hours. I mean really, what sort of person in this time of financial crisis honestly thinks I’m not going to need my entire paycheck? You can bet your ass she has her full paycheck as well as all her faction.

It just confounds me. When I worked on the floor and did the payroll up there and if anybody was short some hours I always, ALWAYS called them to find out what happened because I KNOW what its like not to get your full paycheck especially when you depend on it.

I mean its around effin Christmas. What the hail am I supposed to do about buying gifts AND trying to pay my bills since I’m still down a job.
