I first tried to get a raise about, oh, a year and a half ago? I was outright denied, and since then I've been lied to, put off, placated, and comforted.
I have begged. Pleaded. Cajoled. Researched. Whined. Pushed. Nudged. Reminded. Flirted. Flashed. Sexually harassed. Demanded. INSISTED.
And today, I finally got it.
I GOT ME A MOTHERFUCKING RAISE.
I bought a bottle of champagne on the way home.
Time to celebrate ME.
