I got overpaid on my latest paycheck by several hundred dollars. When we had guests at our house this month I took off some days without pay because I had run out of vacation days. I filled out my time sheet correctly, but it looks like payroll wasn’t paying attention. At first I was delighted, then confused, then dismayed. I considered keeping the money (it’s their mistake and obviously nobody had noticed, maybe I could just not notice either?) but my conscience compelled me to do the right thing. I sent a note to payroll and expect the money to be deducted from my next paycheck.
