Another one of my colleagues gave his notice today...

Three out of four in the UK, now the only guy in the group with as much as Infrastructure experience than me. My job responsibilities have doubled in the last month, and they’re going to double again. Damn. I’m ambitious, and I work hard and want to get ahead, but I’m suddenly being thrust ahead quite unexpectedly.

Upon hearing the news, I immediately went into my boss’ office and told him I’ll be expecting a raise and promotion. He agreed, and said we’d work it out.

Didn’t you just threaten to quit a couple weeks ago and get a promotion?

No. I got a “field promotion”, though (I now administrate operations in UK, France, Japan and Oz).
