the art of negotiating

so i've been waiting impatiently for my new job to tell me just how much money they can offer me and the HR woman finally got back to me today. i start on monday. you can imagine that i have been slightly stressed. but get this! ...

several weeks ago they offer my salary A, which is pretty much the exact same salary i get at hell's library for being a Senior Librarian I. i tell them that i would really like salary C, thinking that they will negotiate with me and land somewhere around the vicinity of B (look at this complex math i am using! A after that i can get a raise again. so i am now starting off with more money than the inflated amount i asked for! sweet!
