I'm fine with minimum wage, thanks

There can be a number of responses to when someone asks their employers for a raise. Some of the more common responses are either delivering the raise requested, asking the employee what they feel they've contributed to deserve the higher income, or outright laughing at their request. In some circumstances, the employee can find themselves looking for a new job, and, in very rare cases, the person being asked for the raise freely gives it out, but does so by dispensing vending machine toys and baseball cards, alluding to their potential cash value years down the road.

It's just not every day that someone gets shot because they thought they should get paid more.

And yet, Rolandas Milinavicius is now facing criminal charges for having shot two of his employees, after they requested higher wages for helping to run his East Point, GA export automotive dealership. When he turned himself in, Milinavicius explained that he was "under a lot of stress", and that money was one of the prime reasons. Unto which we can only say, well, obviously.

Even so, when under stress, it's still a little bit beyond crazy to shoot at people who thought that they'd earned a larger paycheck. Plenty of people handle their stress without ever picking up a firearm. In fact, it's quickly becoming the American way of life (or, at least, the celebrity way) to spend your stressed-out days going on some sort of drug- or alcohol-fueled bender, sleeping your way through the masses, and passing out in unfamiliar locations (or, as we like to call it, weekend with Paris). But picking up a gun?

Obviously, Milinavicius also was unfamiliar with the concept that a good way to relieve stress is to laugh. Hopefully he'll learn his lesson, so that if he ever finds himself in a similar situation again, he'll simply laugh at their request, and possibly give them a coupon to help stretch their ramen budget an extra week.

Good day, sun shines!
There have were times of hardship when I felt unhappy missing knowledge about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright pessimistic person.
I have never thought that there weren't any need in large starting capital.
Now, I feel good, I begin take up real income.
It gets down to choose a proper partner who utilizes your funds in a right way - that is incorporate it in real business, parts and divides the profit with me.

You may get interested, if there are such firms? I have to tell the truth, YES, there are. Please be informed of one of them:

Hello everyone!
I would like to burn a theme at here. There is such a nicey, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of financial piramyde, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For several years , I make money with the help of these programs.
I don't have problems with money now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I get now up to 2G a day , and I started with funny 500 bucks.
Right now, I'm very close at catching at last a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Visit my web site to get additional info.
