The Boyfriend is experiencing huge shit at work. Some Ibiza related stuff has not been taken care of and we'll be going there in two weeks and he recently found out that of everyone in the team, he's getting paid the least.

He has been fucking working for that shit-ass music station for seven years, has been carrying a lot of the workload and he is getting paid the least.

I can understand is anger. You give so much and you receive so little. Yes, he does get credit for all the work he does, has a good reputation in the music business, he does love his job and he basically has 8 hours of on-air time on Saturday night, which he can fill with dance music of his own choice. He's also greatly responsible for the fact that the show is still the highest rated dance program on Dutch radio.

The fact is his salary is way out of proportion with the amount of work he puts in.

It all makes me feel so powerless. There’s nothing I can do. All I can do is hear him out and tell him I understand. And I'm not making the problem about me, I'm not that kind of person. It just hurts to see him suffer like this.

Let’s hope I can at least help him prepare for his evaluation meeting next Wednesday. There’s going to be some major salary negotiating.

The upcoming evaluation is also the main reason why he cannot vent his frustration [...edit ] at work because everything he does around there can be used against him.

Damn glad I’m still in school. Being a grown-up is hard work.

Wish him luck…

And you can always sex him up to help him release some tensions, no?
