Today, I walked into my boss's office to ask for a raise, and walked out unemployed. FML

Well if you felt you weren't getting paid what you deserved, then this might have been a good thing. Just gotta find a new job and work even harder at it :D

Were you fired for asking or was he gonna fire you anyway? Anyway, I wish you good luck in finding a respectable job that'll pay you well!

Ahwell, his loss :)

I don't understand why everyone seems to blame the boss, OP could be a bad worker too, who knows

Plus the OP could have been very rude about it too.

Yeah we fired a girl at my work recently because she was rude as hell and terrible at her job. She accused my boss of firing her because he was "afraid she was going to take his job"

Well if you felt you weren't getting paid what you deserved, then this might have been a good thing. Just gotta find a new job and work even harder at it :D

You should never have to ask for a raise. Ideally, if they notice your hard work AND the company can afford it, they will give you a raise. If they fired OP, the most likely explanation is OP wasn't a good employee. Or, there is also the possibility they could just be assholes in which case OP is better off.

Never having to ask for a raise is great, in theory... But you greatly misunderstand the majority of the corporate world.

Don't feel too bad OP, I went in to ask for a raise at my old job and the very next day, I got fired because the company didn't have enough work for all the employees. In reality the boss was a cokehead and the company was imploding. Now I have a great job making much more than I could have asked for there. Good luck OP.

Maybe you should be happy with what you have

That can be hard if what he has isn't enough to live off of.

they have nothing now, what you talking about silly girl ;)

exactly cuz look where it got them

Were you fired for asking or was he gonna fire you anyway? Anyway, I wish you good luck in finding a respectable job that'll pay you well!

Exactly what I was wondering. Like how the hell did OP manage that? I would love a follow up to tell us how these events unfolded.

OP could've said "give me a raise or else" for all we know.

Have you been working there for a long time? If you have and you were working hard, then it's the company's loss for firing you. Good luck on finding a new job and keep working hard!

Hey OP that's really shitty and I hope the job search treats you well :/ Good luck and I'm sorry your boss did that. FYL

If he wasn't willing to give you a raise hopefully you can find a job that pays better and is a better job than the one you had before. :-)

Maybe its a sign!! Stay hopeful OP.

Perhaps this is a sign that you'll get a better job in the near future? Screw your old boss, you will find a better one. Good luck OP.

Wow your boss is a cunt and probably licks cunt.

Boss licks himself. Boss is a cat. Plot twist indeed.

Double plot twist, the cat is really a broom. O.o
