We never had any issues with pay with any of the pay scares.

 I don't recall. I wasn't too worried about it to be honest with you. I knew that we would get paid eventually.

I remember we got  two separate deposits. One on a Friday, the other on the following Tuesday.

We got two deposits.  It doesn't really phase me. We have a good savings  and I know we will eventually be paid.

That's what i thought, but when I told one of my friends not to worry about it, the 2011 issue was just a lot of talk, she told me she got paid a week late and it caused issues for her family.
as far as i knew everyone had gotten paid on time.
AD army if that makes a difference.
