    So I got a pay raise today. They do a yearly review even though I haven't been full-time that long I still got something. So I guess I should be happy but the amount is somewhat insignificant so not sure how to feel. I need to talk to my supervisor about it tomorrow.
    My pay raise starting in Jan 2014 works out to be a net of an additional $25 per check (I get paid bi-weekly). While I am grateful to be gainfully employed, that makes it easier to cover part of 1 week's grocery bills with that massive increase. If your raise is higher than that in the British equivalent, be excited. If it is in a similar ballpark as mine...

    If he isn't on sprint you can sell him one of the million Lumias you have...if he is on Sprint you can still sell him one of the million of Lumias you have and tell him put a prepaid SIM in there for the interim...

    To be serious though, his choices on Sprint are the Ativ S Neo and the 8XT...
    He will still keep the Sprint iPhone because it is provided by work. I plan to make him us the Lumia on his personal ATT line. TBH, I only happen to have about 14 Lumias lying around:-)

    After 30 months of going without a raise, I must say I did quite well this year:-) I am thankful in spades to be this fortunate...

    but its not possible to just lose a plane without being traced. also I know people had to had a cellphone with them so they could of called or texted or trace their cellphone location before it disappeared

    cats are very clever , they love cuddling , and they are lazy :-p
    Cats are interesting. My dad's cat, (it's really his wife's cat), Max, is potty trained. Yes, Max doesn't go in the litter box - he uses the toilet AND flushes afterwards. Only thing they didn't teach him is how to wipe his own ***. But i guess cats don't worry about that stuff.

    It took me 5 years of working at my current job to get to the salary that they quoted me i was to get when they first hired me. I know i should be grateful, but when you put in the hours i do both at work and getting to work, some cyncism at this point is expected...

    I tell you what...if he is willing to pay I can sell him that 925 I have once I get the board from you. Talk to him about that and see what he thinks. I can give him a good rate if his money is good...

    Was that $25 before or after tax? I'm not entirely sure of the amount after tax but before it comes in close to that amount per week, but in pounds.


    I wasn't expecting anything so I should be happy. However, at that amount why bother? I might be able to buy a pizza with it after taxes. It doesn't even cover the cost of my journey to work for the week. Actually the cost of my journey went up a higher percentage than my raise.

    Not a very nice pizza though. :/ Dominoes. The prices have sky rocketed lately and it's just not worth it.
