The first was the woman who does payroll. It is May, and I have yet to be paid any of my overtime for the entire year. That’s four missing months. The woman claimed I would have my (past-due) overtime pay in the next check.
Spoiler alert: The check was still missing the four months of overtime.
The other person processed an invoice so that a patient could receive a piece of medical equipment that was ordered last year.
In both instances, these people were doing their jobs. They were not doing me a personal favor. So it stuck out that they both approached me with the same phrase in the same week.
I don’t answer the phone, “Hello. You owe me for answering the phone. What do you want, for which you will also owe me?”
