I've been looking for a job for a few months, and I've been applying every few days.
Finally, I was granted an interview by this company, who told me that they would pay me about $35k more than I make now. A few days later, I received an offer letter, which I promptly accepted. I told them that I could start in about two weeks.
Needless to say, I walked into my manager's office the next day, presented the signed offer letter, and said "If you can't match what this company will pay me, then I'll resign."
Why was she so upset? I'm trying to negotiate the best deal, and she seemed so angered.
Needless to say, she's going to hell, but why the hard feelings?
