My latest work-related trauma, in cased your missed me ranting about it EVERYWHERE ELSE ON THE INTERNET, is that I apparently have negative 30 hours of vacation time. I want to barf. I've emailed the human resources guy to ask WTF and left him a voice mail but he hasn't responded. I absolutely cannot face the idea of having to work with no vacation for the next four months just to get back to having zero hours of vacation. Also, if this is correct, every vacation I have taken for the last year and a half has had me in negative vacation hours. I foolishly assumed that the amount of vacation hours listed on my pay stub was somewhere within four weeks of the actual amount I had available (last I checked I had more than 110 hours).

Not so far. It is maybe for the best, though, because the more I think about it the more I can think of specific ways in which I have been Done Wrong and of specific steps they could take to fix the situation. At least one time I took time off because I believed my vacation time accrual was about to max out! I never would have taken that time if my paystub had been correct!

Oh, argh. I hope this all gets straightened out, how awful.

I did manage to get hold of the guy who sent the email, who eventually did seem to understand why I was upset about this and to concede that it might be possible to do at least something to help me out with this. But argh, argh, argh. I really, really like vacations.

Aaargh! Though, if your pay stub claims to tell you what the current state is, and it's giving you wrong information, I'd hope you can get at least some of that deficit written off! You would never have got yourself into the current position, if you'd known.

I hope you get a sensible answer today....

I managed to have a sensible conversation, though it did not quite lead to sensible answers. Fingers crossed, things can't possibly be quite as bad as they seem.
