My colleague recently resigned and he tell me his epic story.
Gm: our promotion exercise is coming in august. I have intention to promote you.
Colleague: i work in this company for 10 years. My starting salary is 1.6k. Every year i only get $50 increment. A new staff join do the same job as me straight away get 2.5k salary. You think this is fair to me?
Gm: i don’t know about this as i recently than take over your department.
Colleague: if want to promote me should have done it long ago, not wait till i want to resign. Even if promote me also just give me $100 or $200 increment. I work in this company 10 years already i know your promotion is bs with little increment.
Gm: wah. You go new job also may not be good. If you stay here at least can get a $200 increment when i promote you in april
Colleague: you think i am beggar is it. I leave already is the company’s loss. Now i go drive grab also can easily earn more than 3k a month. I don’t have new job i also want to resign. (Continues nagging about how good he is).
My colleague sounds like he is very proud of himself when he tells me this.
I hear liao arm chio. Just leave, don’t need talk so much crap because nobody will miss you. Go tell your sob story to your wife and mother. We are not interested to hear your sob story. Ppl have been doing grab delivery and earn more than 3k a month, since like what 5 years ago? Now than you want to do grab driver to earn 3k and you still can think you are very smart. 5 years ago you should have already quit and go be grab driver.
