That means I no longer need to get myself into a lather over whether this payroll shortage will happen again in 2008.

I don't know, if they short you a penny every year with compounding by the time you retire it could snowball up to maybe 50 cents!

Honestly, I would be as irritated as you just on principle. Then again, I would know that the chance of my company fixing it is less than zero...thats one of the bummers when you work for a large company.

If your boss ever mentions it, just tell him that he should be glad you are psychologically driven to be that thorough and detail oriented. Seems like the kind of trait I would want in my doctor!
