Tiny bit of background: My paydays are on Tuesday, not until recently have I been working on paydays and I've been getting my days mixed up...must still be on nightshift time.
Another: I fall asleep as a sanity-saving, self-defense mechanism when riding in a car with a reckless driver.
The other night I had a distressing dream. Shrek and I are in the car and he asked me if I had remembered to pick up my paycheck. I said no, I had forgotten about it but would get it later. In the dream, Shrek started accelerating in the car, taking all kinds of reckless risks, so I fell asleep in the dream and decided there it was just a dream and woke to still be in the car. This happened several times. And when I finally did wake up i was angry at Shrek for being so wreckless until I woke up enough to realize it had all been a dream.
When I told Shrek about the dream he laughed his butt off!
Yesterday, while tooling around the building, I remembered it was Tuesday and went to Reception to pick up my paycheck. I didn't remember the dream incident at that time. The receptionist was busy on the phone and the desk was not set up for payday. I wandered off down the hall and asked the first CNA I kew if it was payday.
She told me payday was last week.
I was wondering if I had picked up my paycheck and forgotten about it or what the heck was going on.
So, I went back to payroll and asked Kathy if I had missed a payday. She found my paycheck in the box on her desk. I had forgotten payday
About that time I remembered the dream and got a chuckle out of it, listen to your dreams!!! Shrek is still laughing about it.
The best part...we get paid three times this month. I can do what ever I want with it, Black Friday is coming up and still make next month's rent on time
