    Ask nicely, if that doesn't work, then resort to telling him that you have another job with better benefits and pay that is willing to hire you....

    just "self raise"

    steal from the register....or pull some scams.

    but dirt and the pres have good points..go look for another job and tell him.be a man about it too, that is if he says no.

    if you are gonna use the 2 week notice thingie, make SURE you have
    something else lined up! if you are a good employee, and you have
    worked at your job for awhile, just be straight up and tell your boss
    that you would like to have a raise because of x...y...and z.

    otherwise just beat yourself up like in fight club

    or else what sneak said

    the best bet, is make up a sob story, saying that you need to help pay for someone's medical attention, or you are behind in rent. Then ask him if he can help you out with some additional money. if he says no, I suggest look for another job.
