It was an internal post though, to make matters worse politically. Six months later, my current manager who slathered on the praise (and money) had to lay me off. I couldn't even go to the guy with the offer I reneged on because he made his disappointment very clear. I was interviewing because I didn't like what I was doing and ended up staying on because of a high praise snow-job? - very stupid.
Another mistake: Following a boss you like out the door into his new 'opportunity'.
