Today (actually weeks ago) the higher ups decided to give out bonuses because the cost of living it was determined has gone up by 3%. This 3% change can be attributed to the weak dollar, higher fuel prices, a skyrocketing consumer price index and inflation, among other things. So everyone got bonuses, how thoughtful, except there is one little wrinkle, interns don't count.
Hmmmmmmmmm....I guess I live in some alternative universe where inflation doesn't exist, fuel prices are still at $1.60 and I can get a good meal for under $5 no problem. Also my college loans are interest free for 30 years, my rent payments are optional and NStar decided I'm such a good kid that you know what my electricity use is on them....
