The best way to be paid is in dufflebags
post #62357 of 67956
Unless you do the direct deposit in house it can actually be quite expensive to sign up with a payroll company to handle paychecks. Plus you have to have a reserve on hand with the payroll company to ensure there's no overdrafts which is money just sitting there doing nothing for you. Also if the payroll rep you get stuck with is a cunt you'll have all kinds of headaches.

I hope Piob can back me up on this.

Paid in dead hookers?

I pictured decapitated heads. Deadbeats more likely than hookers.

THanks to the severe rain we've had the past few days in the DC area, I have some serious water damage to my fancy Allan Edmond's shoes. After a day in their trees, they accumulated some of that dried, washed out look in some sections that won't go away even after a polish (polish covers it up temporarily but becomes dried out again).

Dead hookers depreciate quickly. Sure, they're extremely valuable before rigor mortis sets in, but once they start to decompose they are worth pennies on the dollar.

Try conditioning then polishing. Salt stains can be persistent as you describe, but unlikely to be new due to rain this time of year.

It is because leather protein fibers are amphoteric and are highly sensitive to changes in ph. Leather constituents such as dyes, oils, waxes, tannage is ionic negative. Rain water, and especially salt tend to soak in and cause the ph of the leather fibers to move more ionic negative, which pushes out the tannage, oils, conditioners and whatnot (like like magnet poles pushing each other away). The key is is to clean your shoes with something slightly acidic like diluted vinegar to shift the fibers back to ionic positive, then condition and polish so the ionic positive fibers attract the ionic negative conditioners and waxes.

Accelerated depreciation? Great for tax purposes.

jesus, i think this is the reason my wife went through that. she got catty with someone on payroll dept. and before you know it they are purposely sending her checks through UPS knowing wouldn't be able to sign for them when delivered.

the U.S. obsession with paper checks is truly baffling to me.
best i understand it, there is no way for me to set an electronic payment from chase to my landlord for my rent every month.
when the guy in the bank told me this, i laughed, presumed he was joking.
a paper check gets mailed out every month from the bank.

WTF i gotta buy vinegar?? Considering taking them to this fancy shoe store that does great restorations (Sky Valet). They're not cheap though.

Of course there's a way. Either they're dicking you around, or your landlord isn't willing to receive it electronically.
