Wooooo I should be sooooooooooooo happy... I should be forever in debt to my employer. In fact, I am not worthy of being in their presence. They so gratiously and generously offered me a 2500 dollar a year raise. Wow... I am speachless. After taxes thats a whole 67 dollars a pay.... and after the taxes I am still paying on last years salary at 50 dollars a pay, its 17 dollars of disposable income every two weeks..... wait student loan repayment starts, so now pay cheque to paycheque becomes paycheque to negative paycheque every two weeks, what should I do? Get an 8th roomate? Start living off half a pack of Mr. Noodles a day? Fuck this province, its low wages its "be happy to have a job at all or we'll fire you" attitude and the horrible horrible raping cost of living that we all bend over and take up the rear every single day.
