    Holiday Bonuses

    So, here I am at my new job and people are getting anxious about wheter or not there will be any bonuses this year. In the past 10 years of IT work, Ive received a bonus only twice. Since 1999, Ive gotten used to the "well it wasn't that great year for us" wrap. And here we are 10 years later and Ive pretty much given up hope on ever seeing a bonus. Seems like the time of the year business owners tend to put their head in the sand and make believe it's January. How's it going out there for everyone else?

    Nothing...

    But we got notice that we're getting health care paid for 100%

    So that's as good as a bonus to me

    This is the first time I ever got a bonus really. When I was just a plain old plumber...the most I got was a sweatshirt and instructions on how I was doing late night service calls on Christmas and New Years. Nothing is better than getting a call at 6pm on Christmas to snake a toilet and getting to spend an hour smelling someone else's delicious food while wrestling their brown trouts in their guest bathroom...

    There's been no talk around my company about it. So I asked my boss, and he said

    "Sorry, take whatever I gave you as a bonus last year, and add 20%"

    ....so an additional 20% of nothing is.....

    didn't you say your project was part of the stimulus plan? If not sorry, I must have confused you with something else.

    1000.00 taxed, of course, and close to 500.00 in "awards" that I cashed in for gift cards. Did a lot of free Christmas shopping this year.
