My answer...

Thank you so much for all your advice to my last post! I was honestly considering answering her question and giving her a range, but I'm so glad you all talked me out of it. Sometimes, I think I am just too nice.

Here is how I replied:

Hi XXXX!

I completely understand where you're coming from, but I don't think I can help you. Perhaps try salary calculators found on salary.com or careerbuilder.com?

Good luck!


At first I wasn't going to reply at all, but I didn't want to be rude (even though she was pretty rude by even asking). The more I thought about her email the more I think it was just tacky. And lazy. When asking for a raise or negotiating salary ya gotta do some legwork! Silly girl!

Anyway, thanks for the advice guys!
