My immediate manager, to whom I addressed my Dachshund I love mom shirt, was very shocked. A few hours later I was called into a meeting with the owner and C.E.O of the company begging me to stay. I said no! I had been there for 8 years. I had no pay rise in this time, even though taking on a more senior role. I hadn’t asked for anything previously, I was just a good worker who enjoyed their job. Low and behold, the owner offered to match my new salary and more, it was too little, too late. Here I am now, 6 months into my new role, earning more money and being promoted after 2 months. Companies, do take advantage of you, if you let them.
I’m glad to say now, that I’m out for Dachshund I love mom shirt! This happened not too long ago with a friend of mine that I really like. After a business social event, I asked if she wanted to join a group of us going to dinner nearby at a new restaurant. We were 10 at the table and she was there without her husband and only knew me and my partner. She proceeded to order the most expensive item on the menu, a seafood mixed grill of over a hundred dollars. I’m pretty sure it was meant for two people, but she ordered it anyways.
