My job is worse than yours.

For my real-life friends, you are permitted to ignore this post. I realize that I bitch about my job enough and by now you're probably sick of hearing about it. So it's okay if you skip this.

Well, I did the math (yes, I am capable) on my Christmas Bonus this year. I'm actually giving the company money this year.

Here's what I figured out:

- My bonus will be $50 or less*. Most likely less.
- My boss cut my hours (again) for next week, in an approximate amount that will make me lose $108. Which isn't a lot of money when you think about it, but I get paid pretty shitty and so that's a lot to me. Especially around the holidays, when I am broke from buying Christmas presents**.

Therefore, I will actually be giving the company approximately $58 for Christmas. And that's assuming my bonus is actually as high as $50, and not less.

* Although I haven't gotten my bonus yet, I am taking this figure from years' past.
** Every single year I spend way too much on Christmas presents. I can't help it, I like buying presents.

Anyway, so that's yet another reason my job sucks. Happy holidays, everyone!

Jen, We are hiring here! You would have to use Macs and well it is in good old T-Town. Although you would have Health, Dental, Vision, 401K, Stock Purchase Program, & did I mention you would work a full 40 hours. Plus you could hang out with the coolest people on earth.

What a load!

But I know how you feel. Every year we usually get a $1000 bonus, yet we won't be getting ours for 2007 (we usually get our bonus on March 15). A few things happened with our company this year causing us to lose money - like 2 major storms, etc. That's a real bummer.

Jobs really are suckish!

Nice of your employer to cut your hours so he could give you a crappy bonus...

Fun blog!

Merry Christmas.
