Merry f'in' Christmas, Goon.

Merry f'in' Christmas.

I mean, my basic attitue about bonuses in general is that:

A- It's a bonus.
B- I'm owed for the hours I work at an agreed upon rate, that's all.
C- If my boss wants to give me more money at Christmas, it's his choice.

Still pisses me off though.

I like how they waited until now to say anything though....Not that it would ever be a goodtime to tell us.

Nothing a good stiff drink or three back at the hotel after work won't cure

I usually get a small bonus but it is usually after the first of the year. It's this evil Bush Administration.

It is a bonus.

Link Posted: 12/23/2005 9:24:06 AM EDT
My boss says he'd love to give me a bonus, but there isn't enough money for it.

I actually don't mind working Christmas, as it's an extra-rate day.

weekend. The little Goons have antoher Christmas scheduled for Sunday, so, they're good to go.

What is this "Christmas Bonus" of which you speak. I've been working for 15 years in several jobs, and I've never seen one....

Let me see if I have this right. You are one of the few American manufacturing workers who continues to have a real job. You likely make three to four times what many of your similarly educated counterparts make, and have excellent benefits to boot. Your likely compensation package (actual pay + benes) is something near $68 a hour...

You continue to draw this wage and these benes despite the fact that the products YOU make continue to loose market share. GM has gone from owning very near half teh domestic market to something like less than a third? The only division within the parent industry that makes any money is GMAC. Your side of the corporation is a mammoth money sucking black hole....

Any you are pissin and moanin about no bonus? Sorry buddy, here's a quarter. Call someone who cares...



Ouch! thats going to leave a mark.

Spend 7.5 hours out of an 8 hour shift playing hide and seek, and then get overtime to do teh work they shoulda done earlier than day...

Pisses me off. Some poor slob is working his ass off elsehwere for 1/4th money and happy for it...

Sorry for the rant.






Sorry. Little bit touchy today.

I feel you on the GM/union thing. I see it all the time.

I thought he worked execituve protection or something. I used to do that in the early 90's. Spent most of the time parked outside some rich guys house on the night shift.

Do you have a rather large psycho brother by any chance that lives in an RV who's currently staying at your place? If so, perhaps you can send him over to the house of your boss on Christmas Eve to kidnap him, hogtie him, tie a ribbon around his head and deliver his ass on your doorstep so you and your entire family can bash him for being such a scrooge!

Well, it worked for the Griswald family anyway.

Goonboss:

Apologies....

Kinda touchy here too.... Working my ass off. Took a stupid 1/3 time part time job and worked it into a fulltime position over 6 years. I'm looking unemployment squarely in the face.

I kinda go apeshit with the uneducated/prounion stupidity that says some barely literate 9th grade educated slob somehow needs to be paid $68 an hour (and then whines about it).

Sorry fot the rant.... My misread, my rant, my stupid assed replies....

I am blessed enough to have a job to go to on Christmas. The simple fact that I get to spend Christmas day helping those who need it is a most excellent bonus.

Sure wouldn't turn my nose up at extra cash though....

Got a $200 cash Christmas bonus for a little specialty construction company I just started working for on Tuesday.
