So either Alice makes a butt-load of money or she deserves a HUGE raise?

Also, I Googled butt-load just to verify whether it was one word or two. Apparently both versions are acceptable. But what was really an eye opener was the fact that butt-load is an actual unit of measurement.

The PHB's use of circular logic made me think of wheels spinning in mud...

I put in notice at one job. The place was going downhill and fast, and majority of responsibilities were being put on me, while many others just slacked off. So the managers didn't want me to leave, and wanted me to make a list of what it would take to get me to stay. So I made a list of things including a raise. Note I did not say 'give me a raise or I'll quit'. I simply wanted to quit, get away from that job, but THEY wanted to know what it would take. So the main manager told me she could do everything Except the raise. I said I understand. "So you'll stay?". "No I told you what it would take for me to stay. If it can't be done, I understand, but that still means I'm not staying". I didn't even want a raise, I just wanted to quit. So I found another job shortly after that, actually making more money starting than my previous job (and more than the raise would have given me). The manager from my previous job contacted me, asked how much I was making at my new job and offered to pay just as much now. Gee I spent the time and effort to find a new and better job, and I can just throw that away to go back to the old crappy job for the same pay?

I'm surprised that PHB didn't fall back on the usual - and unanswerable - line: "It's company policy". This mantra frequently saves managers at all levels from actually having to think.
