I am such a slacker lately with the blog! To explain a little, when I was blogging more often it was because I had nothing to do at work. Lately, that's all changed...which is great!

These photos were taken at some basketball games I worked at. The one above is a flaming pyrotechnic thing they do...I'm amazed I even got this shot because I used my phone to take the pic. The photo below is what my view looked like during the game that night.

So, funny story! I was looking at my annual raise from my day job which is usually 3%. I noticed that it wasn't quite right this year. I found out that instead of 3%, we got 2.25% raises. I shouldn't complain because some people in the world never get raises. I'm only amused by this fact because our new boss gave himself a 17% raise, now I know why they needed the .75% from us, sheesh!

How Do I Get a Raise?

Desired Salary Range

Reaching the end of a job interview, the Human Resources Person asked the young MBA fresh out of MIT, "And what starting salary were you looking for?"

The candidate said, "In the neighborhood of $125,000 a year, depending on the benefits package."

The HR Person said, "Well, what would you say to a package of 5-weeks vacation, 14 paid holidays, full medical and dental, company matching retirement fund to 50% of salary, and a company car leased every 2 years - say, a red Corvette?"

The Engineer sat up straight and said, "Wow!!! Are you kidding?"

And the HR Person said, "Certainly, ...but you started it."
