I'm just lamenting the fact that I'm so excited. Our company just announced it's 2012 results and we were just awarded with an 18.8% bonus payable in 2 1/2 weeks.. OMG.. I'm so Excited! I'm on cloud 9 right now

That was my entire 2012 home tax burden.
Yea, the obama tax will eat up some.. between the lady and I, the 2% increase to the social security tax costs us a few hundred a month.. I hate taxes, but Oh well, that was going to come back no matter what at some point.
Anyway, thanks Superfly, Very excited today.
In addition, I'll find out on Friday what % increase I get as a merit based increase in pay.

I agree with Ken777 on that topic.. Yes, our property taxes are higher than most of the nation to make up for the lack of state income tax. That is a fact.
Our business has always done really well. USAA is one of the best run companies and most well respected out there. Can't speak for other companies, but we treat our member right and in return, we make a lot of money.
I can hardly work today I'm so happy.. I realize how blessed and fortunate I am to be given such a bonus. Without getting political, it does go to show you that a great income and bonuses can be given for working hard and a union is not necessary to facilitate this... there are a lot of great private companies that are not "evil".

Quoting ALTF4 (Reply 12): Congrats... but... seems a little excessive to keep promoting your net value so much. Just my 2 cents. Don't mind me.
Pssst.... it's A.net, he's just making it all up and trolling!
I mean next he'll post seeking advice on what to do in a personal relationship or ask what to do about someone doing something to him but he keeps going back and having those strange things done to him all while wondering why people think he is a troll....

No dude, you already told us what the social security tax increase costs you.....(well, you and the missus, but still!), and also what trips you have booked! Now, your wife could of course earn a fat bundle, but reading between the lines I would guess you do ok too.
I don't do badly, but boni are simply not a feature of my employment, and at the moment below-inflation payrises are. Still, I am still happy for you - and I hope you enjoy your extra kablingy.
