Myself, but I'm out of debt, enjoy going to the gym and make myself fancy salads for lunch every day and then actually remember to bring them to work.
@Dancersize Whenever you start or end a relationship.
@thebestjasmine Oh for sure. I mean, I've never had anyone even try to negotiate me down after I've given for a number, and I've only been declined when asking for a raise once, which tells me I don't ask often enough or for nearly enough money. Basically, I'm single-handedly the reason women make less than men.
@Mike Dang Yay, happy ending! I tend to lowball in salary negotiations, so I genuinely didn't know it was possible to just ask for double your salary. I thought you would, I don't know, get fired on the spot? Spontaneously combust?
Right, I feel like the boss basically just dismissed him outright once he made this crazy request. He should have researched what people at comparable companies with comparable responsibilities are being offered, and as others have mentioned, demanded a higher title to go with his 20% raise.
Am I the only one who thought the idea of even asking for a 100% raise is totally bonkers?
@Megan Patterson@facebook YES. Oddly enough, one of my dog's nickname's is Poopsy Daisy, along with Dinkus, Shmucka, Bunny, and Stinks. My cat is Catter or Cattywhompus.
@Bitterblue I feel like after people have that conversation, they don't really see each other, ever, because one party always does want to bone. the friendship is more like a once-every-two-months gchat saying "we should hang out sometime!"
Also, I would LOVE to have Ask A Normal Person.
Tomorrow, I will go to CVS and buy all of the candy for half off. Happy Valentine's Day indeed.
