Unjust Rewards

After waiting for years, my company finally paid my increment. Nothing to shout about. Just something to get my neck above the rate of inflation. Although the amount was "amusing", the way the letter of increment was worded "amused" me even more:

Please note that the increment is given based on your contributions and effort that have helped maintain our present level of business operations.


I'm glad that I worked enough to keep the company alive. To write off the overhead costs of keeping me on the payroll. At the rate of things, I guess there is no point to floor the gas pedal. Let's "maintain" the current speed.... Time to turn on the cruise control. Hehe.

P.S.: Let me just pre-empt this-- No LifeBook, I'm not treating you to dinner. :P
