TQC, towards the end of July, my boss held a team meeting to make us aware that if we made $15,000.00 in one week, she would get a $25,000.00 bonus that would be shared among the team (which consists of six people, plus her). Four of us have been with her since the beginning (18 months), another ~4 months, and the last less than two weeks.

Her exact words, when making us aware of this? "I bonus, you bonus. I'm not talking $25.00, I'm not talking $100.00. I bonus, you bonus." So we all worked our asses off, put in loads of extra work and ran ourselves RAGGED scheduling appointments and such, and we did it. She got her $25,000. We got our bonuses today. One $50.00 gift card to a chain store like home depot, the loft by ann taylor, best buy etc. I'm finding it difficult to describe how I'm feeling other than passively indignant.


How would you feel if you were in my shoes, TQC?


Alternately, what emotion would you give this smiley: D: ?
Dismayed is the only good one I can come up with
