    I just earned a 40% raise!

    Passed the biggest examination of my career today. This not only allows me to keep my job, but I immediately get about a 15% raise, and a soon as somone retires or whatever, I get almost twice that raise again. I can count the guns now...

    Congrats!
    There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.

    We will be much better off when we learn to deal with things as they really are, instead of how we wish them to be!

    Thanks, maybe I should but one of the advertising squares to announce it...Oh right, It'll probably take them a month or more to get the paperwork done. Oh well, at least it'll be retroactive.

    Congratus! Now you need to find the person closet to retirement and start leaving nice RV brochures on his/her desk to leave some hints.

    Wait a minute, someone from MI is getting a raise? This cannot possibly be true, as the MI economy SUCKS. Congrats to you

    Let me be the first to say: I hate you!

    Seriously - congrats, and my deepest envy. Because of the weak dollar, I have taken about a 20% pay CUT since coming here...
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.
