LOL!! this question makes me want to scream.
First off, I have mentioned I do work for the original Scrooge, right?

Well, if we have done good for the year, ie: made him money we might get a little something extra in our checks...with taxes held out. I think the most I have gotten is 125 bucks.

And the party, if you want to call it that. He uses one of the resturants he owns and then charges for drinks and food. I have never attended one but I hear he doesn't even decorate.

Well we don't get a bonus...which stinks...but we do usually get a small gift card to *his* favorite restaurant. It so happens that I don't particularly care for this restaurant...hah hah, but there's an effort.

Then my immediate supervisor gives me movie tickets, which is always cool.

At my last job in NJ, we had a "employees only" hors d'oeuvres party. Sometimes a gift with the company logo was given out at the party. If you didn't go to the party, you didn't get the "gift". Usually the two big bosses would walk around and flirt with all the single "ladder climbing" women. I think that's why it was a "no spouses" party, so they could leave their wives at home and fool around with their employees.

We have a party, but the employer doesn't provide it. It's a potluck dinner. I generally supply the eggnog and desserts. One year I brought a beautiful salad my wife made, with all the good stuff that makes a salad less healthy, but no one wanted salad. They wanted carbs, baby!

Gimme gravy, for my mashed potatoes!

I'd eat a salad at Christmas if it had fudge croutons

I ate a salad the other day and the croutons looked like they had been born noodles and rolled up into little balls then baked hard. They were tasty enough, but weird looking.

Forgive me, but I just realized I'm swapping salad stories. I'm gonna get a candy bar and maybe harass someone to make up for it.

My boss takes us & our spouses out for dinner & a night on the town! We also *normally* get a bonus & our spouses get a gift...usually a tree ornament, a candle, or some kind of Christmas decoration...being that I am the only girl that works here, I actually benefit from my spouses gift!! Lol!! My boss' wife buys the spouse gifts & since every other spouse is female, my hubby kinda gets a girly gift..but that's ok..he doesn't care - he just hands it over to me!
