Friday 5 - Pay Day

Thought I might as well do another Friday 5. Don't think of them as filler. Think of them as a way to get to know more about me! Everyone's goal, I'm sure. ;-p

1. How often do you get paid? Every other week. This week is a non-pay day week.

2. Do you tend to splurge a little on (or shortly after) pay day? If by splurge we mean paying the bills and going grocery shopping then yes indeed!

3. What are the few days leading up to pay day like for you? Not so bad lately, but I've had some very fraught times in the past and will surely have more.

4. If you had the option, would you like to be paid daily for each day’s work?No, but sometimes I do think it would be nice to be paid every week.

5. When did you get your first paycheck and what was it for? My first actual paycheck was for a few weeks of work as a camp counselor in the summer between 11th and 12th grade. I think I probably managed to spend more on snacks at the canteen than I made. haha!

Please feel free to participate in the Friday 5 too. I care.

I will do this one. And this time I mean it. I agree about not wanting to be paid everyday, but sometimes every week would be nice.

Tara: If I got paid everyday, I'd probably just spend through it. But sometimes poor week seems kind of once a week would be a good compromise.

I used to like making tips where I got paid everyday, but also got a bi-weekly check too.

Churlita: Tips! Oh, I would love to have a bit of cash at the end of the day. They say former waitstaff are the best tippers. Is this true? :-)
