At one point two years ago, I tried to resign. The response: Stay and we will give you more money, a bigger title, larger office, more perks, and more responsibility.

Oh, the old "We'll give you more pay and perks because we love you so" ploy. And you fell for that?!

Perhaps we should add a sixth rule: If You Develop the Nerve to Complain, They Double the Portions of Everything You Didn't Like in the First Place
