Happy St. Patty's Day! More on Payroll.

March 17th, 2013 at 01:24 pm

It has been a wonderful weekend. The weather has been very nice and mild. We have been enjoying "hang out" time as a family both indoors and out. I have even had plenty of quiet time to read this weekend. Not much got done yesterday..*shrug*..who cares?!

Today it's laundry, dishes, general pick-up. DD and DH are getting the garage organized for a garage sale next weekend.

I'll be starting the corned beef soon. I'm going to make soda bread tonight because I have not had that in years. It is very easy to make - flour, buttermilk, baking soda and salt.

After dinner I am going to a girlfriend's for dessert and a chick-flick with her and another girlfriend. Very likely I'll go over in my PJ and be comfy. Smile

My coworker got her check replaced in cash before anything effected her checking account (her account never went negative.)

I think that my check cleared because: (A) I put in the bank first or
(B) because he instructed his personal banker to pay my check before any other.

I asked the boss about doing direct deposit. He told me he pays the rent that way and if the account is empty the direct deposit is declined so that would not be a solution.

I know with certainty that our withholdings are okay. All our insurance and such is covered. He pays IRS like he should. Thankfully he does conduct his business legally. Unfortunately he sucks big time with money management, budgeting and so on.

When my coworker was talking to him about things she said he told her "the kids really *need* their cell phones nowadays" among other things.. Rolleyes

She told him she wasn't going to work this Saturday. She just didn't want to be there. A bit of payback, I think, because he had to have his family work with him.

I don't know if he really can't say "No" or he can't figure out what to do. It's frustrating!

Hey! It just occurred to me that I should duct tape him to a chair and have him watch a Suze marathon! Wink

    I think that's a great idea! A little Suze love! I get the cell phone thing to a certain degree.....but one would think his kids would be old enough to pay for them themselves....at least the older two! My kids are 21 and 17 1/2 and they both pay us $10 a month for their line....we do cover the $30 unlimited texting though, but mainly because we all use it. If they ever want a smart phone, they are on their own. We are just trying to teach them a little responsibility, something it sounds like your boss should do with his kids.

  2. Looking Forward Says:

    They seriously need to make the kids chip in. They are really nice kids, but everything is given to them. I know the youngest doesn't know how to handle her checking account - not sure about the boys?

  3. CB in the City Says:

    My ex's daughter is like that -- a very nice girl, but she has been given everything, and doesn't have a clue about how to handle money. I think it's very hard to turn that boat around once it's been set in motion.
