    I have a christmas bonus of sorts. Because my tuition is completely covered by grants, the $700 scholarship check I get, I can simply cash. :D

    :xmas: I've been with this outfit now about 6 months, the christmas party was last friday night at the marriott, downtown.

    kinda snooty for me but it was cool, I got to sit at the owners table, good prime rib, with all the fixin's, (including raspberry sorbet, too cleanse the palet):surepal:
    and an open bar!

    a white elephant gift thing ( I brought a bunch of old GM service manuals, all wrapped up):D

    then as we were getting ready to go home the owner walks up and says "Matt, you haven't been here long, but, your doing a fantastic job, keep it up!" then he handed me a check for $250.00 and shook my hand!

    Not much, but better then a kick in the box!
    I ain't complaining, I know lot's of people, who don't even have jobs, plus it's easy work!:xmas:

    The boss always gives gift certificates so they don't get taxed, and I get to choose where it comes from, so this year I'm getting a gift certificate from H.A.D. Should come in handy this spring:xmas:

    My boss called me this A.M., said he's trying to get them written out for us for this friday. Our company had a really good year, the best in the last 8 years.

    $100 before taxes. I've only been there about 4 months (technically, I'm still in the 120-day "probation period"...) so I wasn't expecting anything.
