#2, which is why I don't work hard. ;)

It takes a lot more effort to work hard and get disappointed at the lack of recognition than to slack off and get the same level of notice.


Yes bonus aren't guaranteed, and with my company we get bonuses based on company performance. We didn't do good last year so nobody got bonuses. Hope this year will be different.

I don't want my boss to recognize me in any way. If he suddenly popped up and said good job I'd be wondering what the catch was. Last time I was told I was a doing a good job and they appreciated me I got two pay deductions. I'm not the only one. My co-worker was given a turkey dinner by the vice-president on thanksgiving and he was to scared to eat it; then more frightened about his job.

I agree completely. Where I work we don't get bonuses (the running joke is bonus, what's a bonus?) and we most certainly don't get thanked by out boss. If I got a thank you that would be awesome, but if I got a free mug out of if, that would just be too great for words man. Seriously.

He's not really that bad of a guy. Maybe he doesn't have the authority to hand out Christmas bonuses. Did you ever think of that? Christ, some people are ungrateful. I know it's just a mug, but that's more than other people get from their bosses.

While it's certainly nice to get an actual bonus, remember what you learn at thanksgiving and be grateful for what you have. Just be thankful you have a job and your boss at least appreciates you even if he didn't give you extra money to prove it.

He got her something and thanked her, even if it was in public. He could have just not done anything. At least he did something even if it isn't fantastic.

If the boss didn't appreciate her, then he wouldn't have given her anything. I never got anything for Christmas from my boss. OP should be grateful they got anything

What? You got a mug?!?!

I just got a public "thank you" from my boss. Well, not personally, he thanked hundreds of us collectively at our Christmas luncheon yesterday. That's my bonus, so whose L is F'ed?

#72, we were compelled to pay for our own luncheon with a mandatory payroll deduction. Plus, while we were locked in the lunchroom, management hired people to siphon gas from out cars' tanks!
