Because it's my own stupid fault. I went back and read the original e-mail, and it says it right there.

The e-mails like:

Bonus for August!

For the month of August blah blah blah

If you average 75% for August blah blah blah

Details
blah blah blah
August will be calculated from August 2nd through September 3rd
blah blah blah

It's my own fault for not reading the details. Obviously, other people, like my boss, were also confused, but it was pretty clearly stated and we just missed it.

The only truly frustrating part - to me - is that I effed it up on the very last day. :~(

Can we turn this into a 'general gripes about being ripped off at work' thread? I'm not a salesperson, but I ran into some people, worked my magic, and managed to close a couple of small sales over the weekend. Commission from the sales would be a cool $120/month for three months. Because one of the salespeople actually finalized the paperwork, they get the commission even though all they did, literally, was fax a contract to the client.

Ahhhh! I did that, too! I know a guy who owns a tennis-centric set of shops in the St. Louis area, as well as a store website. I sold him on our tracking product, got him in touch with the right people, sat on a call to make sure they were selling him what he needed, and they just did the paperwork to make it happen. Guess who got the commission?

My cool boss did try to get me a "spot award," which would have been a few hundred bucks. Again, no dice.

Don't even start. They didn't "make up some rule." The rule was in place. Not trying to hijack this thread but the "he was robbed", and the "that was a bad call" stuff is getting old.

Here is the exact wording from the 2010 NFL Rulebook:

Player Possession - Rule 3, Section 2, Article 7
A player is in possession when he is in firm grip and control of the ball inbounds
(See 3-2-3).

To gain possession of a loose ball (3-2-3) that has been caught, intercepted, or recovered,
a player must have complete control of the ball and have both feet completely on the
ground inbounds or any other part of his body, other than his hands, on the ground inbounds.
If the player loses the ball while simultaneously touching both feet or any other
part of his body to the ground or if there is any doubt that the acts were simultaneous,
there is no possession. This rule applies in the field of play and in the end zone.

The terms catch, intercept, recover, advance, and fumble denote player possession (as
distinguished from touching or muffing).

Note 1: A player who goes to the ground in the process of attempting to secure possession
of a loose ball (with or without contact by an opponent) must maintain control of the
ball after he touches the ground, whether in the field of play or the end zone. If he loses
control of the ball, and the ball touches the ground before he regains control, there is no
possession. If he regains control prior to the ball touching the ground, it is a catch,
interception, or recovery.

Note 2: If a player goes to the ground out-of-bounds (with or without contact by an opponent)
in the process of attempting to secure possession of a loose ball at the sideline,
he must retain complete and continuous control of the ball throughout the act of falling
to the ground and after hitting the ground, or there is no possession.

Note 3: If a player has control of the ball, a slight movement of the ball will not be considered
loss of possession. He must lose control of the ball in order to rule that there has
been a loss of possession.

Two simple things to avoid this:

1) I work for myself so I don't have to rely on anyone's generosity for my living; and

2) I never draft Detroit Lions NEVER
