Over the past several months, my company has shorted my paychecks several times, anywhere from $75 to $300.
Each time this has happened, the payroll department made me wait two weeks before they corrected the error.
Last payday the situation reversed. Everyone with direct deposit was paid twice.
I quickly withdrew every dollar from my bank account before the mistake could be corrected.
When payroll called about the mistake, I grinned from ear to ear. I said, "Yes, I noticed the mistake. I will correct it in two weeks."
