Sorta long story, but it ends up with a happy ending. For me.
About a month and a half ago I had a performance review meeting with the owner of my company. I showed up 45 minutes late, wet, and in less then optimal interview clothing. Within the first three minutes he said "Due to the praises your bosses have been singing, we are giving you a raise, the only question is how much". He told me Id find out when I had my second review.
So, I had my second meeting (showed up on time for this one!) a few weeks ago, with the money man and my boss. Things went well, and he told me a number that was suitably impressive. I was told Id see it either this payday or next.
This payday went, and no raise. Ok, I was expecting that. My Boss called last night and said there had been a mix up, and they were giving me my raise as a separate check this time. I find the envelope and... Lets just say that if I didnt have car repairs that needed doing, Id be starting a new army today. Probably Skaven.
So, now that I know how much more I am making each month, I can safely say that I can seriously start adding to my armies once again. Not at the "single guy" rate, but far more then "one small order every 3-4 months". Probably a unit or two every other week.
So, the point I was trying to get to? If I can get the Sis-in-law to take some pics, things are going to get more interesting around here soon.
Now, I go and look and decide whether I am adding to Cryx or Red Scorpions first.... Ahh hell, Both. :)
