So, I got my first pay stub today, after waiting for it since last week Tuesday. That was great. Look at it, looking to make sure everything on it is correct, it’s not. When I started, I signed up for direct deposit and gave all the correct information.
Some how my account number is incorrect, and has an extra digit on the end. I didn’t know if it was a mistake or not, so I look at my account on my banks website, no check had been received.
Text up my boss being like, “Hey, this is wrong, what can be done to fix it?” He asks me what the exact issue was, and I explained it to him, and he refers me to a payroll number.
I call that up, giving my information, and store number, and then am redirected to my branch owner. Wouldn’t you know it? She isn’t in today. So I am redirected to someone else, and give her my information and situation again, and puts me on hold.
She comes back on the line, and informs me that instead of direct deposit, I am set up with a pay card. That’s funny, because I never signed up for one, and made it clear I didn’t want one.
I text up my boss and tell him what I’ve just learned, and tells me that if I am signed up for a pay card, that it should be at my store in the folder. So, I go back to my store, talk to the co-manager about the situation, he looks in the folder, and the safe, and no card.
So I give my branch manager a voice mail, telling her about my situation, and hoping to be able to resolve this soon. She wont be back in till Monday, so I just have to wait till Monday, and see what can be done for me to finally get my check.
This all sucks, but I should be able to get the money somehow. Right?

(Little Caesars, I love the job a lot, and it’s been great, and I get to be around pizza all day. Please don’t take this the wrong way, I know mistakes happen, I just am slightly frustrated. (
Please don’t fire me.))
I speak about the lack of sleep I’ve been occurring for the last week.
I just realized that I have been diagnosed with ADD/ADHD for 10 years now, and have been on the same medicine for at least 5 years.
Wow. Doesn’t feel like it’s already been that long.
I did that stupid thing where I woke up at 1:40 AM, and thought it was 7:40 AM. I start work at 8:00 today, and so I had that adrenaline rush, thinking I had to be to work in 15 minutes. Since I have bad eyesight, I just didn’t even check the actual time.
I have ADHD, and every morning I take my medicine, Focalin XR, and it makes life much better. The best part about it is that it makes me awake for 12 hours, and alert, and so on. That also is the downside though, for nights like tonight.
At 1:40, I rushed and took my pill, and jumped in the shower. It wasn’t till I was halfway out the door till I realized that it was actually 1 AM, and I knew right then that my night was fucked. There’s no way I will get sleep tonight, which sucks for work, but oh well.
Moral of the story: Don’t take your ADHD medicine at 1 AM.
