So, this woman is incompetent and defensive about it? I know it's really easy for an outsider to say this, but your HR people really need to do something about her. As the payroll person, she has tons of power, and if she's misusing it, that's a problem.

I've gotten so used to communicating quickly with certain family and friends on Facebook that I get unreasonably concerned when I notice they haven't been on FB for a certain length of time! It's actually a good thing if someone isn't living their life on their computer, let alone FB! And yet I still have this nagging feeling of "what if something's wrong" .

Yeah, my parents did that when they remodeled the house when I was in junior high.

And it was in a room with 11 foot vaulted ceilings.

I just found a flea on my leg. I don't own any animals and haven't been in the vicinity of one since Saturday.

I'm going to take a wild guess and speculate that Cervus doesn't own any humans either.

My backyard became flea infested one summer, when I had opossums living under the platform of the old shed.

She's very likely been in the vicinity of some, however; though I don't know for sure.
