Overpayment !@#!$%! ????

I received this letter today in the mail from my school district:

“Dear xxxx,

Our records show that you have received an overpayment as a result of a change that was processed in June 2010. The total adjusted gross amount of your overpayment is $12,197.66. This letter is intended to advise you of your options in repaying the identified overpayment.”

This is ridiculous. I definitely have not been overpaid this amount.

Since September 2009, I received a total of $17,454.97 from the school district. There, now the entire world knows how much I made from my year of teaching high school (at a part timer’s rate, for someone with alternative credential).

Now the’re telling me I was overpaid by $12,197.66 and they want their money back?

That would mean that I would only have made $5,257.31 for the entire school year. Is that how much my effort was worth?

When I first read the letter, I was furious. After talking to a dear friend who went through something much worse with the district, now I find the whole thing so completely stupid and ridiculous.

My friend is right–I need to frame this letter.

  1. That is insane and totally frame-worthy. I am very worried about their accounting abilities. And that there is apparently no one behind the wheel when they send out letters. Good luck!

  2. “Dear xxxx,

    Someone in payroll really messed up!
