When it came to the promotion and the new position, I declined it at first.
The bosses thought I was playing hardball, so they upped their initial offer.
They needed myself and others in the new location, so they made myself and others an offer I couldn’t refuse, not only was the pay bump pressing, but they would provide myself and others a signing bonus, and pay for all our moving expenses. I would have been a fool to turn down that much currency, so I accepted the job and moved into the Deep South, but keep in mind that our old house didn’t even have a working a/c, but it was so rarely needed. There were one or more than one weeks a year, in the heart of summer, when an a/c would have been helpful. However, the cost of buying an a/c was too high for something I wouldn’t use unquestionably often. In our new home down south things are unquestionably different, and I have run the a/c every single afternoon since I moved here. Thankfully the new position pays enough that I don’t have to stress about it, I can afford the energy bills, and the correct Heating plus A/C service I need to ensure the plan keeps running. I don’t suppose if I will ever be able to fully adjust to the heat and humidity, but at least I suppose that our home will have perfect weather conditions control. That said, if I had to live here and didn’t have access to air conditioning I am sure it would be unquestionably tough to survive.
