Not my circus, not my monkees.

Not my circus, not my monkees.


different employees approached yesterday tell they didn't receive their paychecks.

An employee who has been working with us for about a year...

A brand new leader...

And a young guy who falls somewhere the spectrum...

Not going lie, the only one I felt bad for and went out of my way help was the employee who has the challenges.

You see.... The thing is....

Where I work, it's the employees who are ultimately responsible for taking care of their own direct deposit accounts.

They can do it at ANY time.

Using their phone apps or any computer, they have access this function day or night.

My only interaction with this process, ever, is during onboarding when I put them in the system.

Even then, the only thing I do is state them....

"Ok, we're doing direct deposit now. the screen, scroll down the bottom, and enter your routing number, bank , and account number where those red asterisks are calling out for them."

And, yes, it never fails, the fucktards will always return with "Here? Is this where I put the routing number?"

I want scream 'Yes asshole!! You do have the cognitive ability READ A WORD without needing seek out my approval!!'

Instead I say "Does it say routing number?"

The first employee approach about not getting her check was an employee who had been working with us for about a year. She had come earlier in the week and said I needed change her direct deposit in the system.

"I'm sorry, I don't have access that. You do, though, you can do it at any time. Just go into [database] and click the tile that says ."

", ok."

I never gave it another thought after that.

Fast forward Friday when she stood before once again.

"I went in and changed my direct deposit ok, but I didn't get my check today. So, when I went in just now to look at the account number I put in, one of the numbers is different. What are you going to do?"

What am I going to do?

Hmmm..... Think I'll shrug my shoulders. Not my issue to fix, this is why it is entirely in the hands of the employee.

"This isn't something I can fix. Did you call your bank yet to see if the deposit was rejected?"

"No."

"Did you fix your account number so your next check will deposit correctly?

"No."

"Ok. You have to do these things to take care of your issue. Once this is done, I will email payroll and alert them to look for your returned deposit and let them know your account number is corrected."

Not me.

It was later in the day when the brand new leader told me he had issues with his pay.

"I didn't get my paycheck this week. I checked this morning and I checked just now."

"Did you look at your payslip?"

"No...."

"Ok, first we need to see your payslip."

You'd think something like that would have already been done?? He's a salaried leader, does he even have the experience he claims to have??

", it shows I was paid."

"Yep. Check your numbers, is the account in there correctly?"

"The routing number isn't correct. It's for a fifth third bank, but not the one I use."

He'd been fiddling around on his phone for about ten minutes while he was looking this shit .

"Well, if you want be paid correctly going forward, you're going need put the correct routing number in there and call your bank. If it hasn't already been returned back payroll, they may be able route it into the correct account. If it has been returned back to payroll, I'll send an email stating the routing number was corrected and it will be reissued with your next check."

For someone who *ran* a store employing upwards of 30 people, I'd think he would have been experiences at something like this.....

And then there was the young man who falls on the spectrum.

I truly did help him.

He had called me and said he hasn't received any paychecks yet.

"Let me look at your payslips and see if it's being direct deposited."

"Ok"

"I'm seeing you're receiving direct deposits. Let's go over your account information."

I read aloud his account number that was in the system and asked him if that was his account number.

"No, that's not my account number. This is my account number."

He read to me his account number.

"Ok, here's what you need to do. You need to call your bank, ok? Let them know you have accidentally put the wrong account number in your direct deposit and ask them if they've returned your checks. When you've done that, I want you to call me back. Ok?"

"Ok."

Thankfully there are some people in this world who will look out for those who need it, and the girl he talked to at the back was one of them.

"Hi. The lady at the bank told me to come here."

I was happy to see him! I wanted to make sure we got the account information in there correctly this time.

" good! I was hoping you could stop by so I can help you! I'm going to verify your bank info as we put it in this time, ok?"

I watched over his shoulder and reviewed the account info the card.

"Let's head back my office, I'm going send an email payroll let them know your account information has been corrected in the system. You'll probably be getting your when you get your next check. Let know if this doesn't happen, ok??"

"Ok"

Out of the , he was the only one who didn't get mad and pissy or expect magically fix it all.

Out of the , he was the only one who graciously accepted the fact that he'd made a mistake.

Happy Saturday!

    Quoting  :

The leader did not listen to me when I told him over the phone to bring his direct deposit information with him to onboard. Instead he decided to 'remember' his account number and look up a routing number on his phone while we put him in the system. Even when I told him he could call his bank to verify he had the correct info, he declined stating "Nah, I'm confident I got this."

I let him roll with it.....

    Well, I gotta say on this one I have some degree of sympathy for the idiots. I'm not fond of companies oursourcing payroll and having employees deal with payment as "self-service" with a 3rd party online entity. In this regard I may be kind of old-fashioned, but I think a company itself should be part of the transaction of "we give you money in exchange for honest work". In the case of my company's payroll, the attitude we get is something akin to "I don't give a rat's petootie if you get paid."
    Have a happy!
Our payroll department isn't 3rd party, they're at the corporate offices. I do give a rat's petootie if there is an actual problem or people aren't being paid correctly. I don't feel sorry for the ones who typo and don't pay attention to error messages when they pop up alerting them to double check their numbers.

    .....and then y'all fucked liked dogs, right? cause this IS a sex site... I remember when I went from checks to Direct Deposit I got pretty panicky when my money wasn't in my account till late in the day. It was my bank fucking around like they like to do.
I prefer direct deposit, I never have to go to the bank anymore. Our deposits usually drop early, I don't even have to wait until Friday anymore to get paid. Bonus!

I get uppity too in regard to my own pay... But I always make sure I put correct numbers in where they go.

You wonder sometime what limited view, knowledge people have.
Only when it comes to SEX, making babies, they appear to have all the right answers
Now you know why I prefer young men over a leader or older one
