I probably will, but I don’t work in a traditional office. We get vacation bonuses too.

Ahh!  That’s awesome!!  I really doubt I’d ever get one, but you wouldn’t hear me complain if I did!

I wish! Instead, I got laid off a month before the wedding. Wasn’t that thoughtful of him?

Anyway, how nice for you! A little extra money at wedding time is always welcome!

Thats awesoem! I have not yet, but I’m crossing my fingers for one. We’re eligible for “spot bonuses” given out at any time – and just before the wedding would be SWEET timing!

hahahhahaha.. you were serious! no, no bonus. I was allowed to take vacation for the wedding, though, but they changed the vacation policy mid year and now I am not allowed to take my other planned vacations this year.

Probably won’t get a bonus.  Most that I will get at work is a cake, card and maybe a gift card depending on how generous coworkers are.  I only know this because someone recently got married and that is what is being done for them.  What is different is both of that couple work at the same company.  Where as only I work here and FI works someplace else.  That might affect things.

@sjones724 – Well, everybody else in the office was very mad at him and they threw me a very nice farewell party/wedding shower, and gave me a very generous wedding gift! 🙂

It was kind of a crappy job, anyway, and my boss was a bit of an eejit. I did like my co-workers, though. I don’t miss the job, but I miss them!

We are a really small company so I am close-ish to my boss, plus we are in Japan where the culture is a little different. She gave us some congratulatory money! We used it to help pay for a very nice dinner out. I got a bunch of presents and flowers from my students too. People are so nice 😀
