[challenge entry] Eating disorders were inevitable

Mrs. UnderCover's brother works for a games company, they just released Vin Diesel's Wheelman.

Least said about that the better I think.

# 'wasting my fucking time'
I believe was one choice phrase. No wonder I didn't want to work for her.

Plus I only found out the salary at interview, and it was the same as I was on at the time.

# At the moment I would gladly move for the same salary.
But every time I go for an interview they make silly salary offers you would expect to turn down as an intern, why would they expect an experienced person work for it?

# That's why I'm on such a shitty salary here
I was absolutely desperate for work, took the job on low salary because I hadn't graduated at that point with promises for big pay rises when I graduate etc.

I've been here a couple of years now (already having 3 years industry experience), still haven't even reached the top end of the starting salary and the other programmer earns over double what I do.

The next person up from me is on over double what I am, and I do a lot of his stuff anyway.
