25 Times People Received Holiday Bonuses So Insulting, They Just Had To Shame Their Bosses

What do you find most exciting about the holiday season? Enjoying Grandma’s homemade pumpkin pie, showering your loved ones with cherished gifts, watching your favorite Christmas movies, drinking hot chocolate, or maybe receiving your annual holiday bonus? Only about 12% of American employees receive either a year-end or holiday bonus from their employers, so if you are one of the few, count your blessings.
