Since the corporate tax cut announced a few weeks ago, dozens of companies have given many, if not all of their employees $1,000 bonuses.  Unfortunately, my company is not one of those participating.  I throw that out there because I know that my boss is reading this.  Having said that now, I guess that there is a distinct possibility that everyone else working here DID get a bonus.  Maybe I shouldn’t be so quick to disrupt staff meetings with one liners that he might find disruptive to the dissemination of very important information.

Sadly, with the dollar weakening against other currencies, and inflation on the rise here domestically, that after-tax bonus won’t go nearly as far as it used to.  And now I’m starting to sound like my grandpa.  Maybe I should keep those jokes to myself after all.
