Today, I found out that my boss, who had promised me a raise, is not promoting me. He says I don't have the right 'vibe' and I'm not 'relaxed' enough for the job. FML

"I finally figured out how to get that employee who doesn't have the right vibe to relax." "Really? How?" "I'm not going to give her that raise I promised!" "Brilliant!"

Ask him what you can do to improve yourself in order to be qualified and considered for future promotions.

Pretend to not give a fuck about anything then. But seriously, that sucks, OP. GL

Ask him what you can do to improve yourself in order to be qualified and considered for future promotions.

Step One) Relax Step Two) Get the right vibe Step Three) There is no Step Three!

Step 3: don't be unrelaxed

This happenend to me once. I applied for a higher position which I was more than qualified for and my boss denied it and gave it to someone less qualified. When I confronted him and asked what I could have done differently he said "Oh nothing. I just don't like you."

Brilliant!! Brova!

thank you for that laugh. I needed it.

Start knocking back a few shots of tequila for breakfast and see if you can get "relaxed" enough to succeed.

Seems like an invitation to show him just how "chill" you can be by not doing any work ;D

Sooooooo.....?

this is why I vape

I agree with #2 - ask what you can do, your boss may have suggestions to try and hopefully next time theres a promotion youll be ready. It sounds like all you want is the raise anyway, maybe your boss noticed and thats why you didnt get the promotion

What else could she possibly want besides the raise ?

There seems to be a consensus amongst the commentors that that "being relaxed" and doing nothing at work is the same thing. In some jobs it could be benificial to give a relaxed impression, rather than appearing stressed out constantly. So OP's boss could have a legitimate concern.

hi guys! op here. in regards to wanting the raise, that would have been nice seeing as I could seriously use the money. however, I was hoping to make it a career, something stable and not a corporation like that was awesome and my boss is amazing. he finally fessed up that he just can't afford it right now and he has to do everything himself because of that. no biggie. I'm a workaholic, so I've got more than one job. thank you all for the support and I look forward to seeing more funny comments!!! I'd also appreciate any constructive criticism so that maybe I can be more relaxed in the future. lol. still can't believe this got posted. peace!!

ok. so vaping. nicotine is a stimulant. It won't help you relax. The only reason it would help anyone relax is that they are addicted and addicts tend to freak a little when they don't get their fix. But I'm the end, that just gives the illusion that it relaxes you. physiologically the body won't be relaxed.
