What does this have to do with Python?

Companies do whatever they want. Some of them consider a month to start from
the 1st and end at the end of the month, some of them take 30 days from the
date you started, some of them 31 days from when you start, or 28 days
(four weeks). Some of them have a fixed starting date. Some of them don't.
Some bill you fortnightly, or weekly, or yearly.

I'm not sure how that is relevant to either Python or what companies
consider a month, but okay.
