    I went to work last Friday and my boss calls me and my assistant into his office. We take the walk across the street and he says "Thanks for all your hard work this year" and hands us two envelopes. Having just received our Christmas bonuses and a week's free paid vacation days earlier, we say thanks and then head back across the street. I explain to my assistant that the envelope probably contains a discretionary bonus, and that it might me a couple hundred bucks, but nothing major.

    After sitting at our desks for a few minutes, we decide to open the envelopes to see what's inside. Turns out we had a really good year, and there's just shy of $1000 bucks in the envelope :eek: . I look and Cheriti and she looks at me and says "Are you fucking kidding me?" and I say, "VIVA LAS VEGAS!". :D

    So after keeping it a big secret for 3 days, the two of us reveal our surprise to our better halves at a Christmas get together. Not only is Cheriti my assistant, but she's also my best friend and her hubby is the Prez of the Karb Kings. I've never been to VLV and she's been begging me to go for years and so now it's happening. I booked the flights for 4, 2 hotel rooms and 4 wristbands, and we still have over $200 bucks left each to put into the spending money account.

    I'm so excited that I'm finally making it out there and will get to meet so many of you guys in person!

  2. Keep some of that cash in your boot for bail!! Sounds like a real good time is going to be had by all!! Have a great time.
  3. hope you thanked your boss.

    Congratulations. All I can say is what ever company you work for really knows what you are worth and making sure you too know they recognize it.

    The President of the University of Florida gave HIMSELF a $260K bonus on top of his $600K salary. We got a pocket calendar. :mad:

    All my wife got as a bonus was a photo album - and she won't even let me fill it with hot rod photos.
