Y2K

There's a bright Side

WHAT THEY DIDN'T THINK OF

A lot of people have written to ask my view on the Y2K business. I haven't said much about it, mainly because there isn't anything I can add to the volumes that have been written already. Either side could be right.

But somebody sent me the following, and I'm always happy to share a cheerful view.

Re: Vacation Pay

Dear Valued Employee:

Our records indicate that you have not used any vacation time over the past 100 year(s). As I'm sure you are aware, employees are granted 3 weeks of paid leave per year or pay in lieu of time off. One additional week is granted for every 5 years of service.

Please either take 9,400 days off work or notify our office and your next pay check will reflect payment of $ 8,277,432.22 which will include all pay and interest for the past 1,200 months.

Sincerely,

Automated Payroll Processing
