Insulted. Definitely.

, , , , | Working | April 26, 2020

I worked for a humongously large corporation. However, [HLC] experienced a bad few years. There were several employee layoffs, and [HLC] was not the moneymaker it used to be.

My manager’s manager’s manager evidently decided to try to boost our morale, which was in the gutter. He gave each of us an end-of-year bonus: a book of ten 50-cent [Fast Food Place] coupons. Total value: five dollars.

To this day, I am not sure if I should have been grateful or insulted.
