I can understand you wanting a pay rise.
At the end of the day the bottom line is on a go-forward basis. To be honest the reality at this moment in time, if you really think about it, is that it all boils down to it being what it is. The fact of the matter, with all due respect, is that it all adds up to the one thing that matters.
To make a long story short, that really is it in a nutshell.
Have a nice day.
