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.




  1. You wouldn't believe the list of things I need. Among them, a new husband, my age, my looks...etc. Anyway, when's your Chapter 10 of Plum coming?


  2. This weekend is Plum and Fairy chapters.

    You can never buy what you really need.


  3. Spoken like a true writer. I'd take the lap top over the toilet! Just ensure that you don't neglect the toilet so long that the floor caves in one day. :)

  4. Do the toilet first - I've been watching that damn show Hoarders on A&E...toilet do rot out the floor!

    Not that you're a hoarder...but you know what I mean :-)

  5. I'd love a laptop!!! I've been thinking about a little netbook -- affordable and miniature-sized. :)

  6. Oh yes, a new laptop. I get all giddy thinking about it. But I probably should do the toilet.

    Blah. I'd rather have the laptop.
