the unforeseen pitfalls of success

It is all too easy to focus on the pay increase when one offers you a promotion. More burdens and responsibilities naturally come with the territory, and management will rarely be able to completely sugarcoat these aspects, but the dollar signs have a way of trumping any of the standard trade offs mentioned in the initial offering.
Still, you think you know what you're getting into.
However, the little things are the hardest to anticipate. You never think about things like having to communicate with your bosses directly on a more regular basis and how it will eliminate that lunch hour generally spent drinking in your car alone or how the subsequent lack of that special "Rextime" was all that separated this from a "real job" and Rex from a downtrodden "worker".
I guess I never really thought about people actually living like this.

I'm afraid that boat has sailed. I presently have my eye on other, seemingly more useful equipment that you would unfortunately not be able to employ in the same manner as the jazzmaster.

However, things change.

Stiff upper lip and all.

the other bad thing about work is that i'm often unable to get online and patrol my comments for phrases like "swedish penis pump".

I'm sure that won't attract any errant page views from inadequate Swedes.

I understand your problem, but let me assure you that the "Unforseen Pitfalls of Success" are preferable to the "Predictable Pitfalls of Having a Sucky Low-Paying Job."

Not that I would know or anything.

Oh it's still a low paying job, Lee. It just isn't the lowest anymore.
