This is awsome. Last week I had my six month evaluation and I brought up the possibility of a raise, he asked how much I wanted. Now, I'd never been in a position where I was able to actually negotiate my own raise, and I had no idea how much was appropriate, so I asked for two dollars. I got home and told my family and they said that's a lot. Well, I just got out of a meeting with my boss, and they decided to give me the two dollars. He said that's much bigger than typical, but they felt I was doing well enough to merit it. My life is awsome.
