I have been posting about my job and the reduction of hours that has occurred. I've not posted about some of the other issues that have cropped up with the reduction in hours, other than the payroll schedule change. My reduction in hours also meant (unknown to me and my fault for not asking up front) that I no longer get paid for holidays (like Thanksgiving, Christmas, Christmas Eve and New Years Eve day) that I had in the past and there is also going to be a change in how I earn vacation time. I found out the unhappy way, when I opened my paycheck last week and did not see my "holiday" pay. At least for now I still have my medical benefits.
I did, however, get a very unexpected surprised. I got a call from our finance department and I am getting a holiday bonus, it's $900. I am going to use part of that to buy myself a holiday present and put the remainder in my E-fund. I'll get that bonus on my month end check, due to a mix up at the payroll department, it did not make my pre-Christmas check.
It's the little things that can really make my day!
