Not really a question but an observation: When I process a payout of overtime in Personio I get a message that “overtime was payed out successfully”. Can you change the “payed” to “paid”?
The word payed exists but does not refer to a financial transaction. It is a nautical expression:
Payed definition: Although it is sometimes applied as the past tense of pay, using payed for paid is not correct.
That being said, there is a sense in which payed can be correct. In nautical terms, payed is the past tense of pay, meaning to use pitch as a seal to prevent leaks.
- To make the boat seaworthy, a sailor payed the open creases between the planks with hot tar. (Past Tense Verb)
Please avoid using the word payed for paid.
Sorry to be picky, but it hits me in the face every time I pay out overtime !
Have a great day!
