The big news at work: The moment when everyone discovered they had a little less in their paychecks today than usual.
It took me all of one minute to figure it out. The Social Security Tax increased from 3% back up to its previous level of 6% after a two-year holiday. I know this because, y'know, I read the news.
It took my co-workers a little longer to figure it out. Cue the bitching and moaning. Not to mention discussion of what costs they're going to cut to make up for the loss of income.
This was my cue to blink uncomprehendingly at my co-workers.( Cut because this is getting longCollapse )
