    It would have been nice for Veeblefester to say, “This bag on the desk is your monthly raise”

    Brutus’ hopes of having taxable income after the standard deduction are dashed again.

    Brutus, Veeblefester couldn’t make it without you. You should get that raise just for putting up with the miserly curmudgeon.

    Actually, Brutus, that’s not a bad idea. A higher bracket might erase any gains from the raise.

    Quite a while back I had to make the decision whether to take the pay rise that would mean I couldn’t get paid overtime anymore or to take the rise and hope I could push through quickly to the point where losing out on the overtime didn’t matter anymore. I went for the latter and kept my fingers crossed

    so does that mean the raise would’ve effected his tax as well as more money he gets paid with… :\

    Brutus, the office whipping boy. Gets the crumbs that falls from the master’s table. Someday you’ll be a Super Nova.

    it’d be nice boss to be at the top end of the bracket instead of the lower end

    Back in the 80’s I was offered a move by my company, but I had to pay for the moving expense. My boss offered the observation that it would have been taxable if they had reimbursed me anything.

    Brutus is trying to figure out what “quiet quitting” is now.
