Seriously, this is a curse

Every single time I start a new contract, my first pay gets screwed up.  I thought it wouldn't happen this time because I worked through this agency a few months ago and they have all my details on file but nope... no pay.  I have to wait another week!

It's so damn frustrating.  It's not even that I need the money, it's the annoyance and frustration.

  1. Grrr I hate situations like that. Especially when they're all "there's nothing we can do until next month", what shoould I pay my bills with until then? I hope it gets sorted quickly.

  2. Annoyance & frustration be damned - it is bloody rude & quite frankly I would have thought illegal. Pretty sure it would be here.

    1. It is rude. A few years ago I worked on contract where I didn't get paid for about 3 weeks. I told them it's a contract - a legally binding document and I'd take legal action. I soon got paid.

  3. Annoyances are so frustrating; frustrations are so annoying.

    I remember a time in life of being almost totally broke. I wish I'd known about dumpster diving and the freegans.

    Good luck.

  4. Did someone drop the ball or did you not read some fine print?

    If your not getting paid cuz they blew it I'd go nutz....if you were penniless this shit could push you over a cliff...glad you can make light of it. I think I just wanna punch folks to be honest and it looks like you got a good reason.

    I kinda envy that. I gotta make shit up and then freak out ;)

    1. Yeah it's kinda a fine print issue. I haven't punched anyone though... well not yet.

  5. When I switched jobs 8 years ago I started just after the payday cut off. And this job pays monthly. And I was transitioning from a weekly paying job. Needless to say I had a month and a half with no money for food other than Top Ramen. I still can't eat the stuff!!!

    1. Been there - monthly pays are evil esp when you first start a job!
