Oh my gosh! I am SO tired of our new payroll system. You'd think by now (we've had it since August) it would have all the bugs worked out and be an easy process every payroll (we only have 55 employees). Every single payroll processing day it's something different that causes a problem. And it takes half the day to hear back from our payroll person. She takes hours to respond to an email, so I call, but the recording always says she is never available, would you like to leave a voicemail? ok....but the last two payrolls their phone system won't let me leave a voicemail, so I end up having to email. I am beyond frustrated with this. It wouldn't be so bad if the person assigned to our company was actually available. I just have to sit and wait until she finally gets back to me, and then of course, I hardly have any time left in the day to get it all entered and reviewed, which ticks me off. We finally heard back right at closing time yesterday, but with not a good answer on if it was even fixed and then subsequent emails to her were not responded to. She asks me "how did you determine that today was when you were supposed to submit payroll?" OMG! Seriously?!! I said since we started with your company I was told I needed to process payroll 4 business days before our pay date (15th and last day of each month). I even got a generic type email from the payroll company the day prior, reminding me I was supposed to submit payroll the next day! Not to mention, when we first started they sent me a schedule of when to process payroll. And then while trying to make dinner, I having to message with my boss about it. (I need a raise!)
I was finally able to get it completed this morning, except the very last step produced an error message on a severance pay manual check (that the payroll person actually entered for my boss, not me), so I can't submit until she responds to that email I just sent. I'm sure it will be several hours wait, again. My boss actually sent an email to her and her boss about an hour before the end of the day yesterday, basically saying we all need to get this figured out, it shouldn't be this complicated every single payroll.
DH was crabby yesterday, but that is expected as usually 2 days after he over does it (worked on pantry all day Sunday) is when he feels the pain extra. He did at least go back to the lumber store yesterday morning and picked up some more boards so he can finish trimming the windows in his shop.
For reading books in my library queue it always seems to be feast or
famine. The past week or so just about every book in my waiting list
became available and I can't keep up now, haha. I did finish Lee
Child's newest Jack Reacher book. I have to say this one really didn't
do it for me. I loved all the other books, but this one just seemed to
drag on and on.
Awhile back I read a sci-fi suspense
type book by Blake Crouch called "Dark Matter". Really good and
mind-trippy. I then put in a reserve for another book he wrote after
that one, called "Recursion", which I am reading right now. Oh wow -
it's even mind trippier! LOL. I few times I had to put it down
and take a little break, I think just to wrap my brain around it, but
then I'd want to get right back into reading it. I'm about half way
through it. I think both of these books would make really good movies.
