Today, it was supposed to be payday. Instead, it was the day I found out that, for two weeks, I have been volunteering for Habitat for Humanity, and am not actually employed by a construction company. FML

How do you NOT KNOW you were volunteering? It's usually made very, very clear and if you had an interview they would have explained it at least 6 times that "hey you do realize this is a volunteer position, you still wanna do this right?? " *hopeful look on interviewer's face*

YDI for being the most moronic person on the face of the planet.

With ALL jobs when you're hired they say that (blank) is payday right! And if they did not say that then would you not ask which day is payday? With all in mind I call Fake

People that work for family often don't discuss it. It could be that a relative is a contractor for construction and asked him to help work on a house for Habitat for Humanity, and he just assumed that work meant pay

Maybe he got fired, but nobody told him, and since there were also volunteers working on the project, the other bureaucrats just assumed he switched to volunteering?

I imagine they're pissed because they have no income to pay their bills, not because they did something good for someone and didn't get paid. If they worked in construction it's not like their job responsibilities would've been much different, and I'm guessing his co-workers didn't say anything. Depending on how you're employed (part-time, casual, through an employment agency) it's quite possible for this to happen. FYL OP.
