You boss just gave you money. The first thing you think about is asking for more? I don't know how things work over there but if I'd be your boss I'd just tell you that it ain't a charity and that you should go back to work. He seems like a nice guy, and all you want to do is take advantage of him...
This quote is correct. Why ask for more already when he just gave you a bonus on what you already make...? I think I'd be pretty darn happy to get a bonus for doing good on a low paying job. There's no bonus in sight for me though, where I work we get small raises from time to time, but no one gets bonuses. Be happy with what you did get, he didn't have to give you anything extra to begin with. If he feels like giving you more later, then it will come in time. It's not a good thing to ask for money directly or indirectly from a boss, especially if you are almost hired...
