Blockbuster checks are actually now dated to be void in 90 days. :(

OP, call Payroll. They can have you send it in for reissue. But make a copy first!

My RDO got canned awhile back. The fact that I outlasted that miserable, evil man makes everything else that's happened not quite so bad.

I won't miss customers acting superior and talking down to me simply because I work retail.

I also won't miss pretending to be cheerful anytime my DM shows up. That's exhausting.

There's an even bigger backlash on Blockbuster's Facebook page about stores being open on Christmas than there is about the closures.

But when a store posted, on average, a 5 digit profit on each SPR, I don't see how...

Right now the range in my district is $16 - $20 an...
