We mail out payroll checks on Tuesday night. Every Wednesday I get calls from people saying that they haven't received their check yet. I remind them that we mail them on Tuesday night. The rest of the conversation always goes this way:
Them: "So, I'll get my check tomorrow then?"
Me: "I'm sorry, I can't promise you that. We mailed it on Tuesday through the postal service, unfortunately it's out of our hands now. If you don't get it in a few days I can cut another check for you."
Them: "Ok, so I'll get it tomorrow then."
