Yeah, I sploded whn I realized Xmess is next week. Oy.
I remember getting so excited. Now I just weep at my bank account.

...but... it's so fun buying gifts.

Yeah, I tend to go a bit nuts too. Almost bought Adam's mum $40 worth of chinese tea. Woah Nelly! Good thing he was there to talk me out of it.

Do you get xmas bonusses there?
I was hoping we would, but no sign of it yet. :(

Well.. we get two bonuses actually. The day of the holiday party the entire company gets a holiday card with a crisp $100 in it. "Bonuses" should be showing up this week. The actual bonuses are figured by some arcane ritual that may involve multi-tabbed spreadsheets and slide rules.

I want a christmas bonus figured out by some arcane ritual involving multi-tabbed spreadsheets and slide rulers! :( It's not fair!

I figured, hey, I work for an American company, I should get a damn bonus! :(
And thanksgiving and stuff too, cos, totally, more holidays are awesome, even if they don't apply to me. :(

*sigh* oh well.

Just out of curiosity, do you get paid monthly there?

Yup. Monthly.

Bah. I work at a non-profit. No bonus.

At my old job (also a non-profit), we sometimes got illicit cash from our vendors.

Yeah - I work for state government. Bonuses would be seen by financial conservatives as a waste of taxpayer dollars.

Just like our health insurance and retirement benefits.
