I didn't want it to go this way, but it looks like I'm going to have to give her a formal letter today asking for the raise. She said we could meet on Monday, but since there's no guarantee of that and I want the raise to start in February, it looks like I'm going to have to make my case in writing before I mesmerize her with my mad charisma and professional interpersonal skillz (ha).
Fortunately, I think I'm a pretty good writer of this kinda thingamajiggy. I'll letcha know what happens.
I'm off to the wilds of New Jersey to do belated xmas with Ma Nator this weekend. You be good, kids, and keep wwwoooonnn-ing my way, mmkay?
