Payroll Time

I had the most trusting bosses in the world for about two years. Or, for about one year. During that year they only had five employees, so at the end of each shift (we each worked one night during the week), you'd write your hours on a piece of paper and pay yourself out of the cash register. Something tells me this was not entirely above code. The second year they began paying us with checks made out from a company checkbook, but they'd never have them there on payday. Protocol was for the first of us to ask them for the check to also ask them to write out everyone else's. I don't know about everyone else, but I'd always go straight to the bank and cash my check before any of my colleagues tried to do so. Oddly enough, they actually went out of business after hiring one more person. My theory? Too many of us cashing $40 checks each week.
