I had a pretty damned good day, y’all. Well, most of it was pretty standard work stuff, but then there was this conversation with my boss.
Boss: Good news, your promotion finally went through HR, it should be officially done this pay period.
Me: Excellent, thank you!
Boss: Your salary will now be [number WAY higher than I expected to hear].
Boss: And you’ll be getting back pay to the time I originally requested the promotion.
Me: Um. Thank you?
Me: *leaves office and freaks out*
So that happened.
