I got this comment from lorib in regard to my "What would you ask for, if you knew you would get it?" post:
Follow-up: I forwarded this to D because he had a former, much-loved intern going through her first job search and getting low-ball offers. D encouraged her to ask for more money and also sent her this post. I have no idea if she read it, but she did ask for more money and got it. You may have helped put one young woman on the right track at the start of her career.
This just made my day. No, scratch that. This just made MY WEEK!
I love it!
Keep it up! If nothing else, we will all make more money. That can't be bad!
...and just so you know I "walk the walk"...here's my tale:
Friday night we went to our favorite Italian restaurant. It was around 7:30pm and, of course, the place was crowded. We were told we had a 20 minute wait. After about 5 minutes, Alex starts getting restless. Since we are standing there looking at 2 empty tables in the bar, and a foursome eating at the third, I said, "let's ask if we can sit in the bar". Two minutes later, we walked past all the other poor (silent) suckers waiting for their table and sat in a nice, roomy table in the bar. And, no, no one was smoking...they were all just waiting for other tables! It was sweet!
Keep it up! I want MORE stories!
