Expanding the Navy again

We have a company wide 'GEM' points thing where you can apply to thank a colleague by means of an official thank you email or GEM points which can be used to spend on the company GEM points store.
However, our department head believes we are working for the love of the company and as he has the final say in how many points are allocated, we get bugger all. I got 10 this year.
A different department with a different head and budget - one girl got 250 just for turning up and 'helping a colleague who was upset'! Takes her yearly to 1250 (must have smiled at the boss one day to get the other 1000).
The points to GBP ratio is about 1:1 so she can get a top of the range iPad and I can get............. bugger all because there is nothing that is as cheap as £10 on the store site :(

Apparently its tax deductible so I'm really not too fussed as any additions messes up my tax anyway.:cool:
try smiling at your boss?
 
We get a tiered bonus scheme depending on profit, from £200 upto £1000.

profit has to meet a set figure before it is triggered, been going since 2015 and only had 1 x £200 so far.

My "company" Christmas do is on 25 December and I have to pay for it all myself! It's cancelled this year because Mrs H and I don't know where we'll be living - lease ending and fckuing difficult to find a new place at a sensible rent.

Suggested that, Mrs H said "Glamping, not camping". I'll have to find a marquee and put a 4-poster bed in it, then get done for not having planning permission!

Ah, "Acorn", the M.O.D. suggestion scheme. I submitted a few ideas that were considered but not acted upon. About a year later I noticed that my ideas were in fact being implemented. When I challenged senior management I was told that "as a junior manager it was my job to think of ideas that would save money!" However, they did give me a reward. A furking biro !!!!

I have fond memories of Huntingdonshire, my aunt was headmistress of the village school in Great Raveley :)

Edited to add: One of my father's cousins was a nonconformist minister in Upwood
