Urgh my pay hasn't shown up in the bank. It's not technically overdue until tomorrow but it's always there by now.
I've emailed people about it and there's nothing I can actually do right now, but manually performing all the automatic transfers that have now failed won't be fun.
@mike god I hate it when this happens.
@Kels_316 at my company it's pretty rare, but it's happened JUST often enough in the last decade that I get nervous when it seems like the usual timing is off, but still feel like a bit of a dick for hassling the admin staff when it's not technically overdue YET.
But if I wait for it to be officially overdue, it's after close of business and it takes another full day to sort out ...
Urgh. Fuck financial stress.
@mike I'm so happy my bank auto-retries for a few days after (and sends you snailmail about it - not that I ever open it until like a month later), otherwise I would be in so much financial trouble.
@ultem I don't know what you mean. They can only transfer money that's in the account ... if it's not there, the transfer fails. I guess if I had some kind of overdraft arrangement there'd be an agreement to cover things, but that'd be if I was a business, not a regular person.
Consider this a friendly, local pub. Make yourself at home, bring your friends, have a good time! Meet new people, have a laugh, enjoy the ambience, and the Oxford commas.
