I brought the brightest large red handbag I could find placed in my cleaned desk the morning of my departure. I had my exit interview and “forgot my bag” in my desk. I made my boss walk through the office to go grab it for me. For the toxic and male-centric workplace. I know it embarrassed the crap out of him.

Once when I was 22 I simply ~left~ one day and did not return. Blocked their emails after sending them one letting them know where they could send my check. Worst job I've ever had and I don't regret it! Bridge was already covered in lighter fluid I just set it aflame lol.

My company had been holding back title change and just gave me one with a raise. I had already planned to talk to them about salary before I knew this was happening. It was also two weeks before performance reviews where they do a merit based raise.

Is it wrong to fight for a raise on top of what they gave me? I had found out the salary of what they are hiring for my role and I am on the lower end even though I’m covering that market currently. Should I ask for what they are offering new hires?
