My husband started working for a finance company a few years ago. Then, his brother got a job with the same company. A few weeks ago the finance company made a huge deal and gave a portion of the money to all the employees as a bonus type of distribution. So, I told my husband I didn't want to tell ANYONE how much of a bonus we received. I also told my husband not to talk about the bonuses with his brother who works for the same company. His brother "A" is always trying to be the smarter, cooler, richer brother and spends all his time telling my husband and I how cool he is. So, that being said I did not want to talk about bonus, because "A" will always have the bigger bonus, bigger paycheck, etc. Well, last night my husbands mother called him and told him how much his brothers bonus was. I couldn't believe she would do something like that! It's none of our business. I knew if my husband found out how much his brothers bonus was it would make him upset - which it did. "A's" bonus was larger than my husbands. I don't know how much the bonus was because I wouldn't let my husband tell me. Why on earth would his mom call him up and tell him that? I am so mad. Am I out of line or should I be upset about this? I wanted everything to be private. It's no ones business how much peoples bonuses are, especially when they work for the same company.
