LOL!!! You are probably right. I think I'll spend my last two year of work being very happy that I did not get myself into that beautiful office. My cubicle may be small and unimpressive, but it will...

Working for the feds, we don't have bonuses. We can sometimes get small cash awards for merit, but I am sure they are nothing like what you are talking about! So I would still not earn anything more...

Thanks, Barbarus. It seemed like it took way, way too long for me to advance compared with my ambitions and efforts. But maybe that was more due to my impatience than anything. Now, I have accepted...
