Decimal points are important

Oh goody, my paycheck has been deposited.

Why is it half the amount it should be?

What's the large amount of money deducted for DivInv%?

Is that my 403B retirement account? I thought I decided to put 5% per check in that.

That's not 5%. That's more like...oh crap.

"Hi, I think someone needs to check their math. There's a really big difference between 0.05 and 0.5."

Note: It's all fixed now. Payroll may screw-up but they do fix things quickly.

I would have had a heart attack, cried and been a puddle of panic.

That's one way to hit your maximum yearly contribution :-) But glad they could fix it so quickly. Thanks for the PSA on decimals :-)
