I know it's a stupid ass question. But I was recently snatched up by a competitor, same location and niche. My current boss tried to counter offer me to stay and I said no, since I already signed a year lease at new location (paid for my new boss) Then he proceeds how he can sue (or whatever) to my new employer for using same tactics which consist of adwords and a certain blog format we have (that thousands around the world are using) My boss thinks since he spent millions on marketing using certain keywords and somehow im going to use those same keywords, which i fucking have to! lol, but he never fucking created any in-house adwords program or thought of a bot idea. How the fuck can sue someone for using dictionary keywords in PPC?? Yes it's same industry but i can figure out somoenes PPC within minutes. I dont remember signing any contract while working for my current company of 7 years. First: 1. I was already an adwords whiz from the start 2. The bot that was created can be created within 1 day...we fired a guy who created the bot and then I had someone to recreate a better version. Now they are saying I cant use that either. Funny thing is, since I'm hourly (which i got laughed at my current employer) that bot was created at my house with my guys from upwork. My new employer is going to pay me 150k, when I was only making barely half of that for 7 years with no raise, salary or paid time off. At the end of they day, my current boss just doesn't want me to increase is budget if we're competing in same market. I get that. At lunch, i told my ex-boss/current, why he would want to destroy my family and this golden opportunity for me. Fucking sociopath!!
