This was not a good week at work

I got this awful promotion. It came at the same time as my regular merit increase was due. They gave me 3.5% and a job grade increase. That sucks! 3.5% for a raise I understand, but for a promotion?!?! What a joke. Of course, with the higher job grade comes additional responsibilities. So a lot more work, but not a lot more money.

I would have turned it down if they would have given me the chance to. I'm trying to leave my area anyway and this slows down the process. Now I have to stay an additional 6 months unless my manager lets me leave early. I hate the idea that she can stop me from taking a better paying job.

I really don't like my job very much.
