I also got a raise today, too. And I was told I'm getting a promotion, this should help the finances some. The promotion was to the level I thought I was hired in at, but I might be wrong. And, I found out that someone else who is 4 years younger than me and is already a level above what I'm at now (the level I will be when promoted), is expecting a double promotion. Should I really care? CB says that's the problem when you know how much other people are making.
