At least you get something.  My office is firing a bunch of people effective 12/26.

@Billsgirl:  eeeesh, that’s rough. I know we should be thankful for anything, but to me such an insignificant amount is almost more offensive than no bonus at all.

I would rather get no bonus at all than that. My office gave us two movie tickets last year. This year we aren’t getting anything.

@Billsgirl:  yeah – a $25 bonus is kinda – really…like really?  BUT, all the same, be grateful that you got something and you have a job 🙂

@Billsgirl:  LOL. Your resume comment made me laugh. I would also be a little miffed, TBH, I think they could have made it seem a bit more ‘special’ if the just got you each a $25 gift card to a nice restaurant to go to for your lunch one day!

@Billsgirl:  That sucks. A few years ago one of my friends got a box of pears.

@Billsgirl:  But at least it’s something.  We got nothing, and have just been told that we’re losing a bunch of staff.  Those of us remaining will be adding extra work to our plates as well, and definitely not getting bonuses (we’ve just been told “you’re lucky to get a paycheck.”)
