a) I have a job
b) I get raises at all
But when each raise gets progressively smaller it gets kind of disheartening. My first raise was like 8%. This one is BARELY over the Cost-of-living increase of 3.1%. They're supposed to be Merit increases. Don't I merit more than cost of living?
Oh well, I'm outta here soon.
Then, to top it all off, I get home to a Jury Duty notice.
Scheduled for 3 days before I move.
Richer of pocket, poorer of love for work.
