Bless her heart
Well, one of my adjunct instructors came to me after she got paid and said that she needed to talk to me about her pay. At that point, I was nervous because I never like to mess up with people's pay and I do know that we are human. I stopped doing what I was doing and listened to her when she said that she got her check and it was more than what she was used to getting. She then said to me that she think I over-paid her and that she has more money than usual and didn't know what to do with all that money. I keep a log of all hours I turn in and how much I turn in every other week, so I said to her that I will check the records to see how many hours were turned in for her.
We both agreed that she worked a total of 22 hours and that is what I had on record for her. I said, "There it is, 22 hours on the dot." The little lady then said, "This is a mystery, I can't explain it." I then asked her if she was at the meeting where it had been announced that all adjuncts got a raise. She said, "No, I didn't go to a meeting....A raise, you say?" I said, "Yes, you all got like 4, maybe 5 dollars an hour raise." She said, "Now, that explains it, cause I thought I was gonna have to cash my check and bring the excess to you." Bless her heart!!
