The people are great, the assignments are interesting and it's definitely got that "good ol boys" feel which I'm into (I've already been invited to 3 golf outings this summer, still can't believe they're going to pay me to golf). The only thing that is bad are the other 2 SA's. Idk why, but they've decided to gang up on me, constantly pushing my buttons, it's obvious they're actively one-up etc.
So today I answered an open email to the SA's from a partner regarding a project. When I got back the one SA sent an email to *summer associates* saying how I'm a gunner because I responded so quickly to the email and then the other SA responded with something along those lines. I attempted to play it off and said something, jokingly about me being a gunner and tearing pages out of library books. Anyway, I later realized that addressing an email to *summer associates* goes to not just us but also to the two associates who run the program. I'm pretty freaked out right now that I just cost myself an offer over something stupid, and I really never do stuff like this. Should I mention something to the associate tomorrow how it was just a joke and it won't happen again? Any thoughts?
was it pretty clear that you were joking or does that not exactly leap off the page? i doubt anyone would take what you said seriously, tbh. if anyone should be worried, it should be the other two for being a couple jackasses.
