I got one this morning, fortunately for days off next week, that the employee signed back in April. Judging by the number of holes in the top, it's been hung & re-hung on their bulletin board at least a dozen times in the past three months. Her manager just signed off on it yesterday.
Another one the same manager signed yesterday and left in our mailbox last night was for a vacation day on the 8th. That boat's already sailed, folks, that payroll cycle was submitted to Corporate last Friday. The checks are already here waiting for me to sort out & distribute. I hate that her check's going to be short, and she'll likely blame me, but there's nothing I can do now to fix it.
