Well I was rather pleased earlier this month at work. I got an email informing me that they were giving an across the board raise of 4%, which would take affect on Jan 1, 2009. Needless to say I was a bit shocked by that because I did the math and checked. I had been working there for a whole 18 working days before getting a raise or about 140 hours. This is a personal record for me for the shortest time period before a raise ever.
Another interesting thing I’ve noticed about my job is how happy I am with it. For example I’m smiling most of the time for no good reason. My wife has even commented on it. So what gives? I really like my job. It’s interesting and aligned with my personal goals and they pay me well and give me insane amounts of time off. Perhaps the better question is: how could I not be happy with this job?
So how about you? What was your shortest raise ever or what was your happiest job ever? Please share.
