Today I had to change some things around in payroll. I learned what comes out of your check pre tax and what does not and why it is that way. It was a good thing to learn. I have been doing payroll for a long time but never knew why some things were pre taxed and others weren't. The program I use has always just told me. But now that we have a new item I had to creat a new account for it. So I had to figure out if the deduction would come out before or after taxes. Good for every one it comes out before taxes - Yeah a couple cents less to pay our lovely government!

Wow that i something good to learn. I know that I have no idea what comes out of my cheque I just know how much I get paid every week and see that so much money is taken off of me everyweek. Which really botheres me. I would like to know what it is for. I think I will have to ask the payroll department.

I knew what came out of the check. But when you take medical out of a check it is before taxes. Which is nice it saves you a little bit.

I think everyone learns something new every day even if they aren't aware of it. Either way, the best thing to do is learn something. I don't know what I have learned today. I came across a TV show that was explain how to live your life to the fullest. And that is always a concern of mine. But I know this fact every day of my life.

I think that is true as well. I think that it is important that we learn omething new everyday even if it s very small or we dont realize waht we learned. Today for example I was watching Who Wants To BE A Millionaire and learned the medical term for nail cuticle. I think that to some point TV shows can be very informational but they can also bring bad into peoples lives.

Yes, I do believe that we learn every day. Today i have learned new strategies on how to deal with young adults. I just need to be attentive to their stories and their sharing/opinions. Take care =)
