Tell them you'll dig them out of the chit, AFTER they confirm in writing that the job is now yours .Thrown the cat amungst the pigeons at work...
The stock controller at work has the **** with the new manager (job i went for) Now taking 2 weeks off because she has had enough. Of course the are expecting me to cover for her, told them today it won't be happening.. The chit storms it's caused is epic.
As the old saying goes.... You've made your bed, now lie in.
If you really want to stick the knife in, ask them to pay you the difference in wages, backdated to when you didn't get the promotion .
