First win for 2010!

Mr Fixit had to go back to work today after his Christmas break.

His boss came in to the R&D office to see him.  This sort of visit from the boss usually entails a “pep” talk where the boss whinges that Mr Fixit only has the capacity to do the work of 10 men and not 100.

BUT

Today he came in and said “you haven’t had a pay rise in a while, so I’m giving you one”.

It’s not a huge pay rise.  In fact it doesn’t cover the lack of pay rise for the past 3 years.

But it’s a pay rise nonetheless.  …and what’s better, Mr Fixit didn’t have to go in and demand a pay rise.

Knock me over with a feather.
