Being promoted to a position that sucks worse than your current
position. Your new title may include such
misleading terms as "senior" or "manager" but in fact mean more
hours for less pay and a false sense of moving
forward in the company.
low guy on totem pole: Hey Stu, congrats on your promotion demotion
Stu: (eyes red, hair greasy, piles
of papers in heaps on his desk) Thanks bro, it's great finally being a Senior Manager in the office. I work
70 hours a week now but I'm making $800 more a year
and I'm really valued here!
