Your story does make me laugh. I don't receive a bonus either. However I work for a very large corporation in AZ. So I don't expect anything. But I do remember hearing about a very generous CEO in Texas (I believe in 2015) that gave each and every employee a
$100,000 (yes count the zero's) for Christmas. Previous years I read that the bonus's were things such as a car or $$$. I had heard the company had approximately 100 employees. WOW. I bet there is a very LOW employee turnover.

@LifeIsGood Already done.
PS: Except the Panera one. I saved that for the kids since it's obviously already been partially used.

I worked for Talbots many many years ago. At one time they gave bonuses to their employees. The gifts got less and less, and then one year we got a gift card to Kroger in an unmarked amount. I thought it was probably $25. It was $5! I couldn't believe it. Everyone said they'd rather have nothing than a $5 gift card. The next year we got nothing.

I bet no one has this beat -
My boss is a nut when it comes to gifting at the holidays. So this year I received a screwdriver (one of those with multiple heads), a coupon book and a can of nut and bolt loosening spray. A couple of months ago he brought the coupon books up here to sell for his daughter. It didn't appear that anyone bought one, so I guess he bought some for his employees! He had a story to tell about the can of bolt loosening spray and how great it is, so he thought we'd like some. Maybe the men did, but me? Not so much... LOL

All I can say is this, Be Thankful to those who have a job. Bonus or no bounus, gifts or no gifts. There are people out there that are unemployed and would be thankful if they could have a job. That would be the best Christmas gift of all.

Personally, I think she was just checking to make sure I hadn't turned in my notice yet. Wait for it. It's coming.
I think they already know.
This probably was intentional...if you haven’t figured it out by now.
