Just outta curiosity, cause the first post in this thread is deleted and I'm just piecing the story together by the responses.. but did you ever try asking for a raise from the boss, and perhaps have a list of responsibilities that you have as well as past things that you had done for the company ready? Or did you just try this to make yourself look good first, and assumped that past performance wasn't enough to get you the raise? The main reason most people don't get ahead, or get a raise, is they accept where they are. They might bitch and whine to fellow coworkers and friends about how they aren't treated fairly, or they deserve more, but almost all of them won't walk into an office and ask for more.
Honestly, if you've got to hurt the company to make yourself look good and deserving of a raise.. maybe you don't really deserve it? But then, I fall in the group of people that question your methods.

His original post was quoted in 8 balls reply man.
Out of the night that covers me,Black as the Pit from pole to pole,I thank whatever gods may be for my unconquerable soul. In The fell clutch of circumstance I have not winced nor cried aloud. Under the bludgeonings of chance my head is bloody, but unbowed. Beyond this place of wrath and tears looms but the horror of the shade And yet the menace of the years finds, and shall find, me unafraid. It matters not how strait the gate how charged with punishments the scroll,I am the master of my fate: I am the captain of my soul.

Yeah, but I didn't know if that was all of it or if that was just a paragraph out of a long essay-type post.Originally Posted by Nevermore

Yeah it is a bit crap that you didn't get a pay rise but we really didn't get that much of one either, it'll make little difference come end of the month.Originally Posted by stronginthearm
I wouldn't go as far as to say no one knows how to do anything, repair anything or what to do. Granted you know a lot more but you've studied and has years of hands on experience.Originally Posted by stronginthearm
Maybe you'll get a nice wedge at Christmas. . . don't hold your breath though. . .
I'm not moaning, i'm having an opinion.
