I should be paid, because someone said so". I'm sorry but I have been pushed and pushed. .. what right do they have to make what I'm asking for look bad and unreasonable? ?? Why can't tbey just not say anything and leave it alone ? if what I was asking truly was unreasonable. .don't you think I would have discovered that without them bashing what I requested for everyone to see. ?? yes I've list my temper .. but I contend.. It is MY RIGHT to ask whatever I want and let the results speak for themselves without someone who ISN'T involved coloring it negative.
*Speaks slowly* ...And you're still looking for, maybe, everybody else who tried to give you that unsolicited advice was on to something?
