In recognition of the many contributions each of you make, the company will be giving you Friday, December 26 and Friday, January 2, 2009 as days off with pay. In countries where these days off are public holidays, alternative days off may be coordinated with your department manager but should preferably be taken between December 20 and January 2. As a token of our appreciation, eligible employees will also be mailed a DVD copy of this year?s worldwide blockbuster and the most successful film in the Studio?s history, ?The Dark Knight.?

=D

I'd suggest you tell them to smell the glove.

Maybe you'll get a copy of that too.

2 4 day weekends + TDK = awesome.

I think I'm taking as many days off in December as I am working.

That's awesome man. Lots of bad news going around companies these days. Cash bonuses are great but if you're not getting a straight cash bonus at least they're giving you something. :)

I expect a ham :(

no big deal really. Last time I checked, it's called a "bonus". Bonuses shouldn't be expected.

I suggest you give yourself an extra bonus by bittorrenting the rest of the studio's library. ;)

They probably just ripped a high quality pirated copy on to DVD. Threaten to call the MPAA on there ass unless you get real $.

OP, Do you work for Warner? The wording of the quote in your post implies that you do.

I'm in the same boat there, had a bunch of use-or-lose on top of holidays.
