Today, after declining an amazing job offer that pays more than double what I make now in order to accept a promotion my boss offered me if I stayed, I asked when I would receive the promotion and pay raise. She snorted and said, "You thought I was serious about that?" FML

OP go find another job, maybe you'll get lucky and find one fast. Then quit, so you're boss's evil plan won't succeed and he'd have to train a new employee


I remember the verbal contract argument from an FML a long time ago! I think it ended with Doc saying there was no such thing and that we should go fuck ourselves. Idk, I could be wrong about that last part...

Well maybe you can call the other job and tell them that you had a chance to reconsider. I hope that things work out OP . That was really shitty of your boss.

I was offered another job at a competitor and may boss said they would better the offer. I told them I would stay only after they made everything final with hr which they agreed to. They made the call while I was still in the office.

Agree with #5; it's the only sensible course of action. Next time, get things in writing and never turn down an offer flat. You should just tell them you need time to consider.

12) Not planning on working any time soon, I take it? I would hate for you to have to work for one of Yhose 'evil' people. And certainly not going to start a business and BE one of the 'evil' overlords.
I believe the corner of Fifth Ave and Houston is available for panhandling between 2pm and 3pm. Just make sure you are gone by 3:15pm - Mike can get mean when he finds someone in his spot.

Seriously, what a jerk move. Complain to human resources. Call up the other company and explain what happened. ANYTHING. Don't just sit on this, because you'll grow more dissatisfied by the minute.
