The next time I hear someone say non-negotiable, I'm swear I'm going ballistic! In business, Everything is negotiable. (Even ethics, unfortunately.) Any amount of mercenary behaviour that I have displayed over the last year or so to get to where I am today is dwarfed by this agency... Threats are flying back and forth, but I'm pretty sure my job is safe.
It feels like a slave auction... except that I'm getting paid hefty wages while I'm on the auction block. Anyone want to check out my teeth, while we're at it?!
