- TikTok user @krisdrinkslemonade has reenacted an interaction he had with his boss recently where his job performance was discussed, on a clip he captioned: “I have 9 weeks left at this job so”
- He replies, “2020 was the second year in a row I didn’t get a raise, even though I was the top employee.” @krisdrinkslemonade then describes his boss’s excuse for not giving him a raise — his pay was “fair market value” for his position.
- One commenter sagely pointed out, “Funny how employers always have an excuse for below-average wages, but accept no excuses for below-average work.”

He then proceeds to go on a very calm but honest rant about his performance in 2020 and how since he was not rewarded with a raise, he saw no reason to keep up his efforts.
“2020 was the second year in a row I didn’t get a raise, even though I was the top employee,” he says…”
