Yesterday my boss prepared us for what he thought was bad news.
He mentioned that the bonus this year would not be as good as the previous despite good performance.
I was really moved by his talk.
In today's work climate, that we have our jobs, at least as of now, suffer no pay cut and are going to get a bonus ( however small) is enough to keep me happy and thankful.
But there were a lot of disappointed faces in the room- I wonder if they are so needy or so removed from reality or just plain self centered.
