69. I worked for a temp agency once, in their office, and it is bad.
I helped with insurance, payroll, and state deductions before taxes. One week, I was going through all the checks when I saw that one guy literally had a check for only three dollars or something like that (I remember it was less than five). I yanked it out of the pile and showed it to my boss, who grabbed his file, thinking we'd made a mistake with payroll. Nope. The Friend of the Court garnering was for almost the entire amount of his check. She got really mad, and she had me call and report it. It turns out there's a law on the books that they can't take beyond a certain percentage (I forget the number, but I remember feeling it was too high still), and they fixed it. We got a new amount faxed to us so that we could fix his check in time for him to get it, and we put a copy of that fax in his envelope.

My parents got divorced when I was five, and my mom fought to not have child support. She won, and Dad never paid it. It was the right thing--made things tight sometimes, but it was right.
