    Well it may well have 5 Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays but, per my employer, I only get two paychecks this month... :(

    You know whats funny about that.. This girl I know loves months with 5 fridays cause she gets paid weekly. She actually thinks she gets paid more over time then what she usually would... I had about a 10 min conversation with her once about it and she still did not get it.. :(

    Technically you're right but if you're budgeted for a certain number of paychecks every month and get an extra one it still feels like a nice bonus.

    For example, I get paid biweekly. There are a couple months a year I get 3 checks instead of two. The months prior and after I'll still get my regular 2 checks so the third check that month still allows for extra money in the budget.

    Ya but it catches up to you down the road. Esp if your a person that lives paycheck to paycheck

    The thing that gets me about her is that the way she argued with me, it seemed like she thought the year magically grew by a week.. lol

    Quite true but it makes for a very nice fantasy of getting more money in the short term! :D

    ? I checked my calendar and there are 5s of each. Basically, any 31 day month will have 3 5's of something.
