The VP (one step above my boss) of my 80 person department, who had had a baby three weeks prior, called to authorize giving me a raise to get me to defer (raises are NEVER offered mid-year at my company). a C-level exec even stopped by my cubicle trying to tell me about the shitty job market for lawyers. Watching everyone who makes 5-10 times what I do freaking out because our clients are going to go insane when my work doesn't get done, after having been overworked (Big Law hours) and underpaid (PI salary) for so long, is priceless. I hope they crash and burn.

Is that really a response important enough to necro a thread that has been dead for over a year?

Huh? That didn't make sense. You necro'd the thread with an emoticon. I responded to a thread at the top of the page. See the difference?
