…I may have been up late because I was updating my resume. When you get an email saying paychecks will be late for the second time in a row, you start to wonder. Especially if this hasn’t happened in the past few years of employment.
Question is, is it PayChex or the company?
I’ve been starting to get the “almost time to change jobs” itch, but this time, I’m listening. I cannot afford to be out of work right now. If it’s PayChex, I won’t be surprised (as I’ve had bad dealings with them in the past. If it’s the company (which is my gut feeling), I’d rather be ready than caught with my pants down.
Renee seems to think that the money problems are temporary, and will clear up after we take care of some debts. but she’s never been so poor that she’s had to decide between doing laundry and buying cheap bread & ramen (because you can’t afford anything else). I have.
And I remember, and even if I didn’t learn from that experience (i.e. how to budget properly), I have a lot more riding on things now. And it’s not fair to put the kids through that because Renee and I fucked up, or because of unexpected expenses (i.e. Damien’s surgery), or because I lost my job and wasn’t ready for it.
So maybe I’m getting twitchy for no reason. Maybe everything will be fine. But there’s this feeling I just can’t shake, and it’s better to listen and sound paranoid, than to blindly ignore it and screw over the kids.
Anyone need a Java Developer?
I need coffee. Thank the gods that that’s cheap.
