Positive instance of 'it rains it pours'
« on: March 22, 2018, 03:17:05 PM »
This month has gone really well at work and some unusual things have happened. I work in IT at a faceless mega corp and we aren't usually up for bonuses or anything like that. However, in the last month I've received the following on top of my normal pay:

  • A profit sharing bonus
  • A discretionary bonus
  • A discretionary retirement account deposit
  • A 5% raise

I'm floored and trying to savor the feeling because this is a rarity. Sometimes they notice our hard work.

It's all going into the mutual fund.

Great for you. How ironic you got a bonus and raise which might make them lose you all the sooner. That is too bad for them, but so nice for you. When you break free maybe you can become an independent contractor and find out your worth. I did and now I enjoy the result handsomely. Turns out they need you much worse than you need them.

Ahhh, it is so nice when Fortuna smiles upon you!
Congrats and continued good fortune - I have a feeling your hard work may have had plenty to do with this too!
