Isn't there a name for that?

When a certain employer spots a fantastic, bad-ass but underpaid employee working for a competitor, so employer calls said employee on the sly and says, "Why don't you come work for me doing the exact same thing, but at a 25% higher salary?" And employee says, "Hey, sounds great, but how about 33%?" And employer says, "Deal! Come on board!"

There's a name for that, isn't there?

Well, today I'm just going to call it EXACTLY WHAT HAPPENED TO ME.

UPDATE: It doesn't end there, kiddies. New employer just called back, "Did you say you submitted your DC waiver today? That's a whole different story - you're 'DC Pending' now. We can offer you 66% of your old salary."

Can I get a what's up now, bitches!!

You're gonna be rich! Well, not rich, but that whole loan thing must be feeling a little bit better, yeah?

I'm excited but confused! 66% of what old salary? How'd this happen? What does this mean now? I can't really ask these questions, or rather, I can't get an answer without details. So YAY but whaaaa?
