Exercised some stock options

5 years ago the company I worked for gave me some stock options, I was like, "Cool! Thanks." and tucked it away. The company was bought out by my current company 6 months later. I didn't think any more of it. A few weeks ago one of my other co-workers asked, "You ever do anything with those old stock options?" When I said no, he said that I might want to check 'em out.

I just sold them today and made $11,000. Not a bad Christmas bonus!

My wife would kill me if I got either. I'm going to use it to pay off the ATV I just bought and clear up a few other bills.

Gee, a free top-of-line ATV from a company that no longer exists. How cool is that!?!
