We get paid on the first and the 15th. She gives us cash, and she gives us an index card with what taxes were taken out of our pay.
Do they do W2"s? This whole situation is concerning.The fact that they didn't have you background checked is scary.  I'm glad you're getting out of there.

Yea, if they're giving you index cards, I'm wondering if any of that withholding is actually going to the IRS, much less being reported to them.

My wife and I were watching video of a concert and she made the comment; "Wow, there are a lot of old people there."  and I looked and anyone older in the audience were all probably our age or a little younger.   I laughed and said; "Honey, I don't know how to break this to you ..."

My dad had gone to stay with his dad for a long weekend, and they went to church. Before they went, Grandpa was saying something about where to sit; he didn't like that "those old guys" all tended to line the pews in the back, and so he planned for him and Dad to sit further by the front.

They get to church, and Grandpa points out "those old guys" in the back. My dad is cracking up--they all look to be in their 70s, that mix of spry and not-so-spry anymore. My Grandpa is 92.

Your grandpa is right though - I know a couple of ladies in their 80's, they're not "old folks!" And some in their 60's and 70's that really are. A lot of it is attitude, and your gramps has the right one!

Shopping in a Walmart once, someone had taken rubber snakes and hidden them on shelves in the health/beauty department.  >:(

I would Not be amused by that at all. I hate snakes. Shudder.
I'm pretty sure my shriek if I saw the snake before my brain could register 'fake' would ensure no one in the store appreciated that one...

While not up to the level of Derek, I have a PD story of my own.

Director C has been with the organization for a long time, has done very well, and was considered to be a rising star. I enjoyed working with her in special committees and going to events with her.

For whatever reason, C decided to leave organization and go to a private sector job.

This is not PD. C told her direct boss, and the top boss when she had been offered the new job, and while the paperwork was still being done.

C decided that she didn't need to come into the office much anymore, once she gave her resignation, effective more than three months in the future.

C has become obnoxious since turning in her resignation. She came into the office singing at the top of her voice that her contract was "signed, sealed, and delivered", interrupting a class in the process.  :o

C has been in the office a total of 6 hours this week, and flex time is not part of her position.

I feel terrible for the people trying to keep business running as usual while C is performing these antics.

Do you have a work email? That is the company's preferred method in several places I've worked at since it can't get lost (or "lost" depending on the situation, I guess).

If not, hand in the letter and send from a personal email to confirm later.
.

No email. Or phone calls for that matter.  I get a text two hours before my shift if I am supposed to come in or not.

People actually trust their children to this place? It sounds so shady.

You are telling me. I haven't even gotten my fingerprints donefor that place and I've been there since October! I just went today and got my FBI/BCI for the new place and can't work there until it passes through, so basically I can't even be working there *alone* with the kids but I am left alone with classes all the time. If state were to come in we could get into a lot of trouble. ><
