Those who are unemployed now are probably bitter. Those who have a job waiting for them are not. Simple as that.
That's cool how you referenced a case.
I'm so far from the end of my tether right now that I reckon I could knit myself some socks with the slack.
Not bitter, but not entirely happy. The only thing I wanted going into law school was to work at a big firm when I graduated. I knew it would be a huge gamble, but I banked on the fact that I would succeed. Had no back up plan whatsoever. Anyway, ended up with the grades I needed (top 10% from top 20 school) and the economy tanked. I have an offer from an amazing firm, but my start date is delayed. looking at jobs to fill the time gap reminds me how scary the prospect of having the job canceled actually is. Absolutely no desire to do anything but work for a large firm. And, for anyone that might be rude in response to that, it is not because I care about money or am a huge snob, it is just that I need the big firm on my resume to open doors and get me my dream job.
