    He's a Brit, therefore he probably won't eat it. However that's what I'd do.

    I can ride horses, but that's the point, I wouldn't ride one of these small ponies ;-)
    I cant ride horses - but will gladly eat them or gamble on them.

    I didn't say hate, that's too strong a word. Its just not quite Friday. Its like one more hurdle to get to, to reach the end of the week. Its also the day before payday so im usually broke by Thursday and I hate not having money.
    So dislike Thursday but hate not having money. OK got it. :P

    Weekly pay seems so strange to me. In Switzerland I think everybody gets paid monthly. There might be exceptions for temporary positions, but I have never heard of long term employes not being paid monthly.

    How about you get paid every hour and you spend like 10 minutes in an hour to collect your pay :D?, so if you worked for 8 hours, you get paid for 80 minutes where you basically did nothing and then there's lunch break and **** break etc.,

    It has its upsides as well as downsides - Its good knowing you have money coming in every Friday so don't have to budget for a whole month - but it sometimes sucks living from week to week - I only really ever get to save any money when a month has 5 weeks - Week 1 is bill week taking almost all my pay - week 2 is rent week again taking nearly all my pay - week 3 is maintenance week which is half my pay - Week 4 don't have any outgoings but have to ration my money to cover the next two weeks.

    He's a contractor. Weekly pay is the norm when you contract. I miss it already. Now that I've decided to be staff it's the first time in my life that I ever got paid monthly. I don't like it. I even forgot what day I got paid. LOL!

    This isn't the norm in Switzerland. Bills generally are paid at the end of the month and people get upset if they get a bill at the beginning of the month with only 10 days time to pay it.

    So I think it's pretty easy to plan ahead, you pay all your bills a day after you get your payment.

    I'm in enough shock getting paid monthly. Having it as 'the norm' is rather depressing. My 'bills' are all over the month so there's no standard day they come out.

    When I lived in Australia you pay rent weekly. I couldn't have fathomed getting paid monthly in that situation. But lots of people do get paid monthly.

    I have also never heard of weekly rent in Switzerland. Personally I think it doesn't matter if you get paid weekly or monthly, there should just be some kind of system in it or it gets messy. In Switzerland everything I can think of is organized in a monthly fashion.
