So, any advice? I know I need to ask, and soon. But I am very nervous about this. I've never had to have this discussion before.

Pick your moment carefully - try and choose a time when your boss is not stressed or busy.

I had to have a similar conversation a couple of weeks ago with my own boss about salary. I made a point of arranging a formal meeting with him first thing in the morning before the start of the working day so I could be  sure of his full attention. I also let him know before hand what I wanted to talk about but this may depend more on your own boss.  It works with mine, may not with others.

So not Wal-Mart, then.  Cheesy

Definitely not.

I did talk to the master of inspection, and then  to my boss. Not only did I get my raise, I was apparently supposed to have gotten it weeks ago and the girl in the office never gave it to me. So they're going to make it retroactive. Also, they couldn't give me full time right now but I am getting another 5 hours a week. WhOoT!

Thanks guys!!!

I'm not making as much as I'd like, but I'll be getting another $2,000 something a year, and the difference between that and what I was making is going directly into my variable rate CD at something around 7% interest. Wink Plus I'm slated to get another raise in July. I have to remember to ask them what's going on with that if I don't get it automatically.

Don't I feel like a dork.

It turns out, the girl in the office really DID give me my raise when she was supposed to. That 6 became an 8 and I didn't notice the difference. Embarrassed Ugh. Well hopefully my boss won't think I was trying to play a mind game with them just to get more money.

Lol  Cheesy  Aw, that's rather endearing! Perhaps they want to keep you around for entertainment purposes! (Only joking of course!)
Anyway, I'm so glad you got your raise.
