Shameless, guilty indulgence

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
I got a nice surprise at work earlier this week. A design I'd submitted for a new tool to use with the forming presses had been adopted and put into production. And, in appreciation, the company had added a "thank you" to my paycheck... to the tune of $2500 USD.

I could have saved it for a rainy day. I could have paid it toward the mortgage. I could have paid off a couple of credit cards....

Instead, I'm sitting on the deck right now with my new toy. One of these;http://www.apple.com/macbookpro/features-15inch.html

I did feel a teeny bit guilty about spending all that money, but I made myself feel a little better by buying $100 worth of cat toys and treats.

I think it is wonderful you treated yourself.

Congratulations!! That is a great surprise. Just think if you were eyeing up the computer before think of it as getting it for free.

I've been eyeing them since this generation of Macbooks came out.

You know what? I think you did the smart thing! You had a good bit of extra cash come your way and you treated yourself with something you can enjoy for a long time. That's a heck of a lot better than putting $2500 on a credit card!

What's to feel guilty about, Mike? It's "found money" -- it's supposed to be a treat, not a duty -- enjoy it.

Good on you, that is a good one, I have the same. I just like if the USB ports were father apart they are close together for very big things like flash drives. But I like it still all the same and just use a USB hub.

I am glad the kits got something too.

That is so great! Congratulations Mike. Everyone should treat themselves sometimes, especially in these trying times.

Congrats! I'm jealous! I think that was a good thing to spend the money on.

Me too, I'm in love with mine. I don't even use our desktop computer anymore! I'm always on the MacBook.

Cool toy, Mike. I wouldn't feel guilty about spending the money, occasionally you need to treat yourself.

Congratulations! A bonus is an "extra", and should be spent on an "extra", IMO. I'm green with envy!
