Hey Boss, I've been outstanding these last few months and I wanted to ask you about a raise.
Um, I am tired, it sure as been busy day.
Have I not been an excellent employee, boss?
You have been an outstanding worker, one of our finest on this workforce.
My family is having a really hard time after the new taxes our progressive president has introduced and I could use a raise.
These new taxes affect more than just you, you know, they have been detrimental to my business, I still have not made my mind up about this raise you require.
I have been our best employee for so long and I cherish the connections I have made at this establishment but our rivals over at Joe's Box Superstore have offered me a job with 1$ more and hour, and my family needs to eat boss.
No, you cant leave, I can afford to lose you to our rivals.
So then boss, will you please give me this raise?
Yes, I will give you this raise of 1.25$ more a hour.
Thank you boss, now I can support my family financially.
Don't mention this to the other workers, just get back to work.
