IR.. haha somehow you make it sound like we're 2 elephants battling it out. What happened was the story of my life. I took a deep breath, walked out of my office, walked into his office and realised he'd left for the day. oh well, better luck next time. I'll probably do it again soon, hopefully while he's still at his desk.

Zee, you never know.. they need you more than you think. And how come I can't access your blog?

Airo you lucky bum. How'd you manage that? And how do I get my boss to realise I'm worth the extra pennies without having to ask? Tell us your secret.

The Dude, I absolutely don't mind :-) And believe me, I do a lot of nerve-building, excuse-in-advance-making and in-the-mirror-practicing before I actually go and talk the talk.

to be honest with you - i go about my day never thinking i'm gonna get a raise.. but i get people to like me ... the people who aren't my boss -- the masses tell my boss i'm 'the shit' and i get a raise...

Works for me... i guess ;)
