Better than a punch in the arm

January 8, 2009

Guess the no-bonus unlove was some sort of mistake. Corporate will be cutting a new one and sending it out to me in the amount of ….. not very much!

I’m not complaining, nor am I surprised that it’s only going to be $300. It’s not even being called a bonus, it’s marked as a Holiday Gift.

Guess I’m just bemused. We’ve been “spoiled” in the past by the generous bonuses, and they were all instrumental in my progress through the years, but my budget never hinged on them. (Thank goodness!)

Hah, it just occurred to me that it’s so small that I don’t even have to worry about how this impacts the tax planning. Every cloud and silver lining, right?

Anyway, it’ll probably go right into the emergency fund, that’ll be nice.

  1. Hey, I’d take a free $300!

    My company always does bonuses in February… they are tied to our earnings. I’m definitely not expecting much (or anything) this year!

  2. I think $300 is WAY better than a punch in the arm.

    Every bit helps!

    Yeah, I know it sucks that it’s not more, but it’s still something. My company doesn’t give out anything!

    paranoidasteroid: Oh, I’m taking it! Well, that depends on whether or not it ever actually arrives in the mail.

    stackingpennies: Or a slap in the face. Ever the optimist!

    sense: Yeah, any little bit towards the e-fund so I stop panicking about not having a job lined up is GOOD.
