northeast. It's more of an "om" for me but the more urban influence you have and as someone pointed out earlier, Southern accents probably put this closer to "um" than "I'm"

There's a fair bit of variation, but most southern accents are closer to "ahm" than "um".

I have made valuable contributions with my own programs that I personally wrote and I feel like they are living dangerously by failing to promote me. I made an application for a high profile project within the company that a team of people are using and I am sure that nobody else knows how to use it and it would cause some big delays or failure to the project if I left.

So now I feel mad and will be interviewing so I can grab them by the balls

I am the master of my fate,
I am the captain of my soul.

Anyone else experience this?

I want to make it sting really bad, so I'll continue to do work to the best of my ability, making myself as indispensable to the project as possible. and then one day I'll just tell them , "X or I go", basically
Wait, you have one year of experience and are crying because you didn't get a promotion?

Also, you think you can grab them by the balls?



I assume you're trolling.
