15 minutes further from my house. 20% salary increase. 2 Less hot chicks.

I'm so torn.

It's not worth it. The chickeness of the job is sooo important nowadays.

The hot chicks are a red herring. You know damn well they avoid him at all costs and flee at the mere thought he is in proximity. So this really boils down to salary vs. commute time.

congratulations on having to choose between cake and pie :)

Venom

FYI that brings drive to 45 minutes. 1 way.

hahahahahahaha

that and the -2 hot chicks?

Venom
23-06-2006, 19:30:25
Yeah. I'm quite torn. I can do a lot of whoring with 20% more money.

do these hot chicks have to sit near enough for you to see?

do they wear sexy cltohes?

are there no hot chicks is close enough proximity at the new job?

They are not in visual range from my desk.

They do not wear sexy clothers. Tight clothes, but nothing too sexy.

In my short office tour I didn't see any hot chicks.

Fistandantilus
23-06-2006, 20:00:38
So it's an increase of half hour a day spent traveling (aka 2.5 hours a week more dedicated to 'work'). And they are paying 20% of your salary those 2.5 extra hours...

I think it's well worth it but it all comes down how much you value your free time and how much of your typical day is eaten up of work-time.

I had I similar offer two years ago and I refused because I needed free time more than 'money' but it's up to you really.

Venom
23-06-2006, 20:04:44
With bonuses and a potential raise after only 90days, it could be as much as 25 or 30% increase.

It seems the value of those two hot chicks is not much then...

Congratulations on your new job Venom :D

Japher

Venom; how will your posting time be affected?

Lurker the Second
23-06-2006, 20:19:42
Good question. *crosses fingers*

Fistandantilus
23-06-2006, 20:22:36
I assume less time spent with the hot chicks means more time spent posting.

Ginfizwithatwist
23-06-2006, 20:28:43
way ta go with the new job hun, bonus: new venue should give you more chance to scope out hot birds in other areas and on other floors using the "i'm lost" ruse :beer:

Venom
23-06-2006, 20:48:27
My posting my go away all together. I'll have to see what their internet rules are. This job may benefit everyone!

Take the money, you can buy chicks.

I got a job offer on Wednesday (4 hours after the interview), but turned it down for the potential of much more money in three months.

devilmunchkin
23-06-2006, 21:27:10
i would take the offer. As of now, I drive 1hr - 1.5 hours to work. You can do it! Take the money.

Greg W
24-06-2006, 04:19:11
Woo hoo, Venom's gone forever! :beer:


What, he hasn't made a decision yet? Damn. :bash:

Koshko
24-06-2006, 04:21:42
So that means Vemon can go from $5.00 an hour to $6.00 an hour!

mr_G
24-06-2006, 09:32:48
congrats, take the job, no hot chicks in the office is an advantage in the way of no embarrassment and all.
and 20% more money more money more money is equal to more chicks and whoring - FACT!!

DaShi
24-06-2006, 09:55:42
You could always try to negotiate for more hot chicks.

Tizzy
24-06-2006, 10:07:34
I was going to say "20% more for an extra 30 minutes travel a day and you're not sure? Are you mental?" then I realised part of that is superfluous.

So I guess I have nothing useful to say.
Except take the damn job.

Loser. They called me with the offer before I even left the parking lot.

Qaj the Fuzzy Love Worm
24-06-2006, 15:56:03
Desperately driving around the parking lot for 48 hours staring in through their windows in an effort to intimidate them into giving you the job doesn't count. Except that it seems to have worked. Maybe brandishing that sniper rifle wasn't such a bad idea after all!

I could SO see Venom doing that. A 900lb man attempting to creep through flower beds outside the office, a .50 cal sniper rifle in one hand, and a greasy Big Mac in the other. ;)

Ah, I KNEW there was something missing from the portrait I'd painted!

The only mistake was thinking it'd be a big mac.

Funko

I don't know if he did or not but it seems like an easy decision.

Nav
26-06-2006, 10:08:48
yes, congrats venom :beer:

Venom
26-06-2006, 12:08:02
A few more pieces of the offer are supposed to come my way today. Assuming they don't have terrible benefits or some nightmarish employee agreement, I'll be accepting the job.

mr_G
26-06-2006, 12:09:45

Fistandantilus
26-06-2006, 12:12:29

Venom
26-06-2006, 12:29:40

Nav
26-06-2006, 12:31:11
DING DING. LEVEL UP! You have successfully achieved SHANTY level. DING DING.

or
make everyone believe you are straight!

Venom
27-06-2006, 12:48:41
Resignation handed in!

Japher
27-06-2006, 12:55:22
did you put a knife through it?

shagnasty
27-06-2006, 13:02:57
It was the knife.

Message recieved and understood.

Venom
27-06-2006, 13:03:10
Nailed it to the wall. Through someone's hand.

I predict you will come to regret leaving hot chicks behind. But good luck anyway!

shagnasty
27-06-2006, 15:54:45
He's taking them with him.

Venom
27-06-2006, 17:06:00
I'm already sad about leaving the hot chicks. But they have boy friends, and I'm still a fat tool, so it's not like I had any chance or hope.

Caligastia
27-06-2006, 18:42:57
As for the commute, it could stay the same if you drive faster.

It all depends on how much booty you get.

That's the proper answer.
