I got paid today, and they didn't pay me for the day I was out due to Isaac's shots.
Logically, I know they don't have to pay me. I used all my PTO while on maternity leave. But they've never shorted my pay before, even when I've used all my PTO already. I haven't taken a sick day for myself since before Gabe was born, and I've only taken a handful of days because Gabe was sick, so it's not like I abuse the fact that they are lax about sick days. DH gets a lot more sick time than I do, so he is usually off with him when he is sick and my work knows that. The only reason I was out with Isaac is because DH was out 2 days the week before with Gabe.
It's only $100, but this was supposed to be my first full paycheck since I came back to work, and I generally only have about a $100 to myself once bills are paid. I haven't spent any money on myself in forever and I was really looking forward to buying some new jeans since my pre-pg jeans are too small and my maternity jeans are falling off of me.
