    Man, I hate 3 weekend pay periods.

    Bank account is getting rather thin and the wife wants to go a-buyin'



    This time was especially costly as it caught us during the fair and we did a camping/bike ride/bar crawl last weekend.

    I'm in sales, and I'm on a draw, so I hate three pay period months. You have to make 50% more in commission to break even with it.

    That is the nice thing about working for yourself. I just write myself a check once a month.

    Re: Man, I hate 3 weekend pay periods.

    Our company just went to one a month pay periods rather than the twice a month we had been doing. Definitely takes a bit more planning.

    Yea we only do once a month as well. Took me some getting used to.

    The month of June made me pretty uneasy with nothing but my leftover beer money + any money I got from graduation getting me through

    Re: Man, I hate 3 weekend pay periods.

    I'm so used to getting paid monthly, weekly would seem like I hit the ******* lottery.

    I'm getting paid once a month, you really have to have self discipline with sticking to a budget.

    I have neither. By month's end I'm usually scrounging for quarters in the couch and doing "favors" for a pack of smokes at the truck stop.

    We went from getting paid every other Friday to bi monthly. When you look at it on paper it doesn't seem that bad but when you get those 3 weekends between paychecks, it seems so long.

    Years ago there was a country song about this, "Too much month at the end of the money!"

    I just switched to monthly pay checks... This will be my second. We are still getting used to it.

    We get paid whenever out controller feels like paying us! One pay period will be a 100 hours, and then the next pay period will be 88.

    Re: Man, I hate 3 weekend pay periods.

    For some strange reason, we just switched from Monthly to weekly pay checks. We also went from paying on time, to a week following so with the change our next check was a week short... That sucked.
