Some of us do learn. Mine would spend it more wisely than me. But this year she didn't ask about it-think she knew. She will be pissed when she finds out everyone else got them though-only a matter of time.
we still got ours and our traditional kick butt party, won 600 bucks this year but didnt win the grand prize(choice between a 2009 Chevy Silverado regular cab pickup/Week trip for 2 Hawaii with pay and 4000 dollars spending money/10,000 dollars cash).
On the missing out though my cousin who is a superintendent on a job for a construction company was supposed to get 7% of the profit he makes on the job, well he found out there not going to give it to him and his percentage would have been 63,000 dollars.
I have always had a good Christmas bonus working for the hi-rise condominium.
I know the people who pay my salary, my bonus, and they know me for over 20 years
They also appreciate other workers like custodians who get nice bonuses as well.
More seniority equals more money.
I have a job in a slow economy.
I have a boss who strives to find work for us.
I have a wife who loves me in spite of myself.
I have many blessings that I can count as my Christmas bonus.
Some money would have been nice but, I never plan on getting a bonus so If I do get one then it's a nice surprise, if I don't get one then it's no big deal.
Merry Christmas from a man who understands just how wealthy he is.
