Continual improvement

With my new payroll system project at work, I have now completed two payroll cycles, and all of the workers have been paid accurately and on time.

I stuffed up

You can't lie

When my two daughters were young, my wife and I wanted them to grow up to be honest and trustworthy. So, it was something that we instilled into them from a young age.
