Embrace your inner Yellow and Black

Those of you that haven't been living under a rock for the last few weeks are aware that there is a fire in Georgia. Well, several fires really. Well, recently, today, the smoke floated up to chalreston area. It was on the news last night that is was coming, so we all knew it. But we didn't know it would be this bad. Visibility is less than 1/2 mile, and it's disorienting. What happens to a bee when they get smoked? They get disoriented, and go back to the hive and gorge themselves with honey. I just don't have honey.

But i am disoriented and confused.

I'm disoriented because of the smoke, but confused because of other events.

I worked at a company for one week and had 38.5 hours on my time card. I was supposed to be paid last week on the 11th. I still have not received my paycheck.

So i called my company and said, what the fuck? Where's my money bitches?
They said: Well we sent it on the 10th, so it should have been there on the 11th.
Me: Well it's not, so can you put a stop payment on the check and re send it?
Them: It'll cost you.
Me: Why?! This is not my mistake!
Them: Well it'll cost you 33 dollars out of your paycheck to put a stop payment on it and resend it.
Me: I don't want it re sent. Obviously that's not working!
Them: Well we sent it.
Me: Do you see the logic in charging me for a mistake I did not make? Do you see that it is illogical to punish me?
Them: No.

I'm very frustrated. So i went there and picked up my check, and i signed up for direct deposit. I have to send in as well as fax my time card to these people, and it's very frustrating. I'm on my way to finding a regular job because seriously, This is just not working. I thought these folks would be more professional, but damn.



I can't think of another way to put it, so I'll just say it this way - that sucks. If what comes around goes around, a major customer will cancel a big order and leave them hanging for thousands of dollars.
Hope your next position is better!
