    Bad manager. Bad manager. Bad manager.

    With every job change, there is always a significant increase. However, I have never started looking for a job, because of money. It is always a bad manager.

      Chumpu—are you joking or serious? The 3 inches hard comment seemed to be said in jest.

    You don't quit the company, you quit your manager.

      Your manager owns your happiness. While you’re off building products with code, they’re supposed to be building you up. That means if you have a legitimate problem, they shouldn’t stop working up the chain until they hit the CEO. If the CEO can’t get it resolved, GTFO.

      You mean after leaving? Yeah but there’s a tax treaty so you aren’t double taxed

      Yes.

      Just saw your edit. What’s the tax rate for AU vs US?

    I was getting extremely stressed out, and sought treatment from an obese hypnotist. During the session, he suffered a terminal heart attack and left me in a perpetual state of hypnotic indifference towards any and all stresses in life. After deciding to no longer show up at work, I survived a round of layoffs at my company and actually got promoted. I started embezzling money from my employer; that didn’t turn out so well, but I managed to avoid prosecution through a series of fortunate events. I’m now working a construction job and banging Jennifer Aniston.

      Death from overworking. Or retirement, if you survive long enough.
