This guy was happy with his job, despite the pay not being the best, because other benefits made it worthwhile. So worthwhile, in fact, that when his friend’s company first approached him with an offer that included more money, he turned it down. Then a friend whom I knew only through social media approached me for a job in her company. They offered me almost four times the money I was making and I could set my own work hours. The friend liked to gloat that she had gotten them the job, and eventually OP couldn’t help but correct her.
