I'm in sales and compensation plans are always changing. Mine is changing as of next month. I probably should be happy but I'm not. The new plan has a higher incentive for higher sales but lowers our guarantee. I've never had to rely on my guarantee. Furthermore, with the new plan, I would have made an additional $9000 last year. I guess this is further reason that we need to live far below our income so we can offset any unexpected income changes.
On a lighter topic, I'm making dark beer beef stew today with carrots, parsnips, and new potatoes. I'm using Amber Bock to make the sauce. It should be delicious! Has anybody ever made dark beer stew?
