Here you Go Now Be sure you are sitting down

The lady in black walked over to me and said that there was a competiotion between all of the stores and the store who saved the most money being efficient with the bags and bagging properly would win a bonus.

Our store along with 5 others met the requirements.

So they put the names of all the employees at these 5 stores into a drawing.

Out of over 1,200 people my name was drawn and I and only me won.

So I recieved a check for a huge bonus and now I am in shock and not responsible for being a little silly.

 

I'd rather not say just how much, but I will say that the amount given to me was written with the taxes accounted for and I won the money free and clear.

It was well over 100 dollars.

I must say that I was very very very surprised.

I was just praying yesterday and talking to God about how I didn't know if I was going to be able to keep working there being as I was not making very much money.

I asked for his guidance on whether I should stay or go somewhere else.

I would say he gave me a definate stay answer.

I feel so shocked and blessed at the same time.

Of course when Rick found out he wanted to spend the money all on the house.

I think not since I already gave him my half of the income tax return.

Ready to go shopping Robin?

Woo Hoo.
