Ok, it has been a very long time since I posted on LJ, but with Mary reading it so often, I decided that occationally it’s ok so long as I don’t let it become a habit. Suffice it to say, she was disinclined to post about this, so I decided that somebody should know about it and I would write the post.

At work we are currently undergoing a competition. You see, we’re trying to impress Cingular with our call center, so they have decided to do something unprecidented. They have decided that for the next five weeks, they will pay us bonuses for kicking ass at our jobs. For operators like Mary and I, if we are in the top 20% on our shift we get a $35 bonus a week. Now, this doesn’t sound like much, but when you figure in that each of us can theoretically get it each week, that’s $70 extra a week which translates into $350 total. It’s like one whole extra person working for us for a 2 week period. The best part is that we would get the payout for this the day before moving into the new apartment.

Anyway, what all this boils down to is that today we found out that both of us won the first week and our numbers have gone up since then. That’s the $70 start we need to keep it going for the next four weeks. Thought I’d share.
