You Know Your Hubby Ain't Getting That Christmas Bonus When...

...his company's Holiday Party goes from

An all-you-can-eat buffet and open bar with dancing and a DJ - at CHELSEA PIERS (complete with a chartered bus to and from the office in the MetLife Building above Grand Central Station)

to

An email memo saying the pizza is on the desk behind him and the soda is on the desk in front. Oh yeah, and Merry Christmas.

Oy.

That is a pretty drastic contrast. This year at my work Christmas party I got a family pass to Thanksgiving Point. Not really a great gift for a single guy. Fortunately I was able to swap and ended up with a gift certificate to Sundance. So, I really can't complain. :)

LOL!!! We know how THAT goes! My husband's company "knew" that all of their employees would want to "do something good for mankind." Instead of having a party and giving out bonuses or employee gifts, they donated something like $10,000 to some charity. Now if only they would split that nice tax deduction up among the employees... no?... I thought not...
