Today the company I work for announced a restructuring/change of ownership. Something like that. The point is the company gave us each a week's pay bonus. Also, they cashed out our equity sharing (a new plan will start up soon). This unexpected cash comes at a very handy time. Our TV just broke, and our credit card bill this month is higher than usual because of the vacation. Also, our car tags and insurance are due. Plus, Christmas present time coming up.
So I'm happy. I know where I'm going on my lunch break - the bank!
