how do you ask for a raise? I’ve been here for a while and its past due. I’m nervous about doing this. Its just a shitty conversation to have. I’m going at it half because I think its earn and half because I need some more damn money.

stupid alternative:

if he can’t give me the raise I want, what other things can he do that would help me? One thing I was thinking was a company car basically because I thought it could be written off as a company expense but thats just in my head I dont know if that actually works that way.
