Who Needs A Working Toilet?
I've been wanting to buy a new toilet. One that I don't have to turn off after each flush. If it keeps leaking it's going to rot the floor out. Plus, I'd like a laptop that doesn't shut itself down every half an hour as well. I lose more work that way.
I've been waiting to see if I hit goal in my sales territory and today it happened. I got my final numbers for bonus.
The good news is that I get bonus because I hit GOAL!!!
The bad news is that I still don't know for how much. Reality!!!
I get my final numbers, my estimated pay out, and it's a healty number worthy of a pedestal toilet and a super computer. But, would it be pro-rated? Pro-rated means getting 1/3 of that hefty number instead of all of it because I haven't worked a full year with the company.
I asked three times if it would be prorated since I started in February.
I was told, 'No, you get the whole thing.'
I got all excited. Visions of big healthy checks were floating in my head. I had dreams of buying a new toilet AND a new laptop. Who knows maybe I would get someone to cut my hair instead of taking the dog trimmer to it myself. The dreams I have... LOL.
But then I got an email this afternoon that says maybe it should be pro-rated.
Maybe. Hmph. I don't like that word. Maybe sucks.
The boss isn't sure which way it will go.
So my money is held up again.
I should get something but who knows how much or when.
It was a nice dream though, wasn't it?
Who needs a working toilet anyway? The laptop I have to have.
