Nothing unethical going on. Her question was how much (bonus) do you want. She heard you ask for a $75 bonus per location. She approved the bonus per how she asked the question.
I hate it when I ask for a bonus, and the scheduler trys to negotiate by stating the same number as the total fee. Your scheduler was keeping it short and simple.
So call her. She'll probably decide that it's too much trouble to change it and give you the $75 bonus anyway. I had something similar happen with Ipsos and the scheduler said the amount was fine.@ceasesmith wrote:
Ah, but if the misunderstanding went the other way, I would call and say "Hey, you shorted me on this -- I said $75 per shop, not $35!"
If I would have called if they shorted me, to me, that means I should call and tell them there was a misunderstanding.
Just like if a cashier gives me too much change, I give the excess back to her. No ifs, ands, or buts about it!
Daddy always taught me, "Do the right thing, even if no one is watching".
Buffalo, actually, yes, I would say something. Probably, "Oh, was that on sale?"
A teller at a bank once gave me one hundred dollar bill too many. When I got home and counted, and realized what happened -- new bills, and they stuck together -- I called the bank and spoke to her. She said, "Huh. I don't make mistakes." and slammed the phone down.
She got fired that night, because her drawer was short $100.
I took the $100 back into the bank the next morning; that's how I found out she was fired.
Frankly, I thought she should be fired for the way she spoke to me.
