What I said in a job interview today:
Office manager: What salary do you expect to work for?
Me: Well, $xxxx would be my minimum.
Office manager: Yes, that's fair.
Me: However. Obviously, the higher the pay the higher my commitment to the company would be.
Office manager: *silence as my non-altruistic ambition rings greedily in her ears*
PS: Apart from that rotten clanger the interview went pretty well. I remain hopeful.
