Don't worry, it's only a bonus. The other 60% is still extra money.

depends on your pay structure. I certainly don't think of my bonus as "extra".

That's a problem right there. Seems like it's similar to the ridiculous amount of tipping people "have" to do in the USA because people aren't getting paid much in the first place.

I know you are used to getting your bonus, but be happy to get something. I work for one of the largest companies in the world and we don't get bonuses at all. 15 years of a bonus free work life!!
