Y - I think you did the right thing. I know that money or lack thereof is all relative but it seemed like you were struggling way too much for your profession. If your employer is undervaluing you *that much* then they don't deserve the courtesy of a "let's work it out" discussion. They know they are taking advantage of you and they don't care!! Why should you give them the courtesy??

Just my two cents based on my limited amount of information. :smileyhappy:

Y, A former boss and mentor of mine always said, "don't forget why you wanted to leave in the first place." If you want to take a job and are unhappy at the current place, what is to gain with a counter offer? If you take the counter, then they know they have you. If they agree to change current issues that bother you, think about why they found those issues acceptable in the first place. I say you did the right thing...

Two drinks cost $100? I'm assuming you had dinner or at least appetizers with them?? Yes it is entirely possible to drink away $100 but not with 2 drinks?!?

Me either, Karen. When is Christine coming out here? We need to pin her down for happy hour. :smileyhappy: My drinking buddy lives an hour away so I don't do GNO much but I do have cocktails at the park with the other "hood" mommies from time to time.

Ugh - sorry, Karen. I haven't tried Nutella or PB with Gabe yet. Waiting for our next allergist appt to get the approval to go ahead. Glad to hear B isn't having as many reactions!
