promotioNOT

at a one-on-one sales performance meeting with my boss today:

boss: actually, i don't think i'll put you up for promotion next year.
moby: oh ok.
boss: if i could, i'd promote a and r...firstly cuz a just got transferred to our team, and she didn't get a pay raise...which i'm quite pissed off about...
moby: err...ok...
boss: and r, well...i think he'll be suffering quite a lot this year, so i'll give him something to look forward to next year...
moby: right... *glum look*
boss: aiyah, don't like that lah...as long as you're getting the money, what for you care?
moby: different people look for different things boss...
boss: no lah...if i were you, i'd just look for the money lah...
moby: and it's been almost four years leh...
boss: we'll see...

what the fuck. how motivating is that? i look forward to working for yet another year without any significant increment. that's just great...superb in fact. =|

leave your job right now. it's pointless staying on because obviously there are no good career paths.
the management also bypassed you for a promotion, which can mean a number of things.
if you really want to stay, either explain to him why you deserve a promotion instead of looking glum, or if he really has nothing to offer, fill out the pink form and go look for other things to do. staying any longer might make you too comfortable to want to move.
