    Will you be getting a Christmas bonus?

    The end of the year is a traditional time to pick up that all important 'extra' pay in the form of an end of year bonus. To some of us, the bonus can mean the difference between having had a good year and a rotten one.

    So, will you be getting a Christmas bonus this year (and I don't mean a bit of nooky with the other sex)?

    As for me, my 'bonus' is paid in two installments, one at the end of December and the other at the end of June (profits dependent), so I'm fairly lucky!

    In a way!

    Well to be truthfull, some lucky girl somewhere will be getting a Chrissy bone-us!

    It's my way of saying "Job well done this year Pooly! Same again next year?"

    My company has a profit sharing plan. During the past five years, it has ranged from no bonus to four weeks pay. So far, no word on a bonus payment

    In the UK, Bonus is a brand of dog food - So, yes I will - Turkey and Ham.....Trust me, a couple of lines of curry powder makes it all taste the same.....

    Bonus money - no, unfortunately. I'm self employed so I hate Christmas and Bank Holidays.....and broccolli......and people who spit on the pavement....Honestly, is that bloody difficult to aim it somewhere off of the path where others have to walk.....ooooh, it makes me angry.....
