FFFFFUUUUU-

Postby StlSluggers » Mon Sep 13, 2010 2:37 pm

My department was running a special incentive program last month. If we could hit 75% billable hours (instead of the usual 65%) for August, we'd get a bonus. I'm usually right around 70%, so I shook some bushes and drummed up a little extra work. When I entered my time for the last week of August, I was just over 76% on my ratio. Moments ago, I received an e-mail from my boss letting me know that accounting showed me at 72.9% and that I wouldn't get the bonus unless I had some extraordinary circumstances.

After a decent bit of back-and-forth, I found out that trollface accountant decided the month of August started on Monday, August 2nd and ended on Friday, September 3rd. I went back and did the math over. On September 1st, I was over the target. On September 2nd, I was over the target. On September 3rd, I took the day off to argue with trollface medical insurance companies and hospitals and that dropped my ratio to 72.9%.

My boss was cool about it, though. He said that this hadn't occurred to him, either, when he was approving my time-off request. If it had, he said he'd have asked me to take my voluntary day off on the following Tuesday in order to make sure I hit the bonus. So he's gonna go ask the VP to make an exception. If nothing else, I like that my boss is going up to bat for me like that.

That's great that your boss is doing that. There is NO WAY my boss would do that for her staff. Even if you don't get the bonus (which you should), at least you have a good boss willing to go to bat for you. ;-D

Hope you get your bonus Sluggo ;-D


btw - if you weren't on the cafe and lolocheezeburgercats you would probably be at 99% and be running the company. But who needs that much money eh?

Confirmed: no bonus.

My only regret is that I moved back a family get together to help get this.

That's bogus man, sorry. :-/

Like knapp said, at least it's nice knowing your boss went to bat for you. Obviously not nearly as nice as the bonus, but nice. :-?

This thread wrecked my morning. Now I'm all stressed out. How are you not postal?

This is like if a receiver were to catch a game-winning touchdown pass only to have the trollfaces say, yeah, you caught a touchdown, but we made up some rules to ensure your touchdown won't count. Ha ha. No bonus for you.

Just another case of the man keeping a brother down.
