I got this!

By promoted - 20/12/2010 05:29 - Australia

Today, my boss quit his job and stopped coming in without warning. Guess who just inherited his tasks and responsibilities without the training or pay associated with his manager role. I was hired last year as a junior system admin. FML

and get paid for all of the extra work. more money & a free promotion!

I doubt that, #1. It sounds like OP is merely the interim manager or whatever the title is. If he does well and they can't find someone else, he may get the job. If he does poorly, he'll probably get fired. Chances are they will hire someone else so all he has to do is get by. This is an opportunity, OP, but you complaining about it leads me to believe you're not up to the task. Good luck.

this is what my boss is like. he just goes home at 11am then expects me to do all his work unpaid. if I do it, I don't get any thanks or pay. jf I don't do it I get in trouble. nothing can be done to change it :-(

The higher you climb in the corporate ladder the smaller your balls become.

OP - that's called a lucky chance to build a career and will add colors to your CV.

oh boo hoo, my seniors deemed me capable enough to be promoted, and in the one day my boss has been gone i have not yet been informed of a raise. FML. what. ever.

no not the first time people have complained about jobs throughout the centuries

you don't get the joke. he's complaining because he got promoted to manager or whatever and is not properly trained

which means in 1 weeks time there will be another FML about how he lost his job for being unqualified :p

He got promoted without the payrise, moron.

the point is he is complaining even tho he has a job when others have no pay at all. if he gets fired or laid off then that would be a FML. but I don't think it is necessary now. sorry but shut up..at least you have a job.

yeah..but he has a job. he is being paid. others are not. so quit Ur complaining and get to work. sorry but I feel NO SYMPATHY AT ALL!!! quit complaining puh-leaseee!

He didn't get the job. He merely is taking over his boss's responsibilities. The boss will probably be replaced very soon

He's complaining because he is Australian. If you all haven't noticed they are an awful bunch of winers.

Omg then sort it out instead of whining!

Don't think. Read. The OP said they weren't getting a raise.

No, don't just read. Think. If the manager left, then there's obviously room in the budget for OP to get a raise. If they prove that they're up to the task and deserve a raise, they'll probably get one. Might be harder work for a little while with no extra payoff, but that's what you gotta do if you wanna get ahead.

dis you know you display picture is the Hindu peace symbol not the Nazi swastika ?

YDI for not speaking up and letting them walk all over you. FYL for being such a wuss

Put your foot down and tell them you cannot effectively do the job unless you get the training and then subsequent pay increase. Don't you get it? You have them by the balls here!!!!!
