Perks

Many companies offer employee bonuses and fringe benefits to show their thanks and support to those that keep a business afloat. This creates a satisfied employee base and assures staff turnover will be kept to a minimum. As a tax payer, I am glad that the Federal Government does not offer ANY such benefits. As the stay-at-home spouse of such an employee, I am awed when told by others about their 'extras'. The dicotomy between public and private sector is especially noticable during the holiday season. HOWEVER - last night we were able to cash in on a FANTASTIC perk that was eight years in coming.



It was an adventure for the whole family - and if you are on my Christmas (otherwise known as New Year's) Card list you will be getting a recap of the evening soon!

I am anxiously awaiting the stories. If you are holding back all tellings until after the release of the Fishler Family New Year Card, it has got to be good. :-)

That's quite a perk! As one whose hubby is also a G-man, those Christmas bonuses, cruises, and other spiffs are all way over-rated. Right? RIGHT?!?!?! And living in UT will never net seomthing as fun as schmoozing with the Bush fam...now I'm depressed:-(
