EFR: What's the meaning of this?

The employee stormed angrily into the cashier's office. "What's the meaning of this? I just counted my pay and it's a dollar short!"

The cashier examined the envelope, then checked his records. "Last week we paid you a dollar more. You didn't complain then, did you?"

"Look" said the employee. "An occasional mistake I can overlook - but two in a row is too much!"
