he would raise our thresholds so that we would barely ever get a bonus.

Well, this is exactly the way the world works: the bar always gets raised. Unfair... but definitely the way even you and I react.
When we get "exceptional service" we expect it next time, even if it was due to an exceptionally compassionate (or boss-hating) person serving us. We, as humans, don't factor in variability because we usually are so stressed that we think we found relief in a chink in the armor of the world at large. Where is PHBÂ different from you or me?
It makes me mildly sick (not greatly so) to see so many comments that are clearly opposed to the PHB's normal (and normative?)Â behavior.
There's a lot of crybabies who can't stomach the corporate world (so they say) but go to work the next day to spread their cheeks for the bucks. (I was one once.) Why not show some integrity and stop expecting saintliness from the corporate life... or leave it.
Well this accurate, except for the retroactively part, heÂ´d get his bonus, but for the next month the boss will rise his quota. That is why some companies re using other reinforcements methods, since they realize that there a point where the sales person stop trying to achieve more, because they only gonna set the bar higher .........
