I believe you may recall the reasons for SA anxiety is because so much is on the line. If 3L SA wasn’t deemed as such a long shot then 2L would be a lot less melodramatic. Hopefully, all of us here will put this experience in our rear view mirror —in a good way.
As far as the humor. Not quite all the way there with that. Recently I was given passes to a Broadway play and my first inclination was to ask, where are the backstage passes… as I said not there yet.
I looked up who Louis Lit is … funny but for sure not there with that yet. Maybe someday. Thanks.
If this is where your humor instincts lead you, it is best that you didn't say anything and continue to avoid attempts at humor. Suggesting, even in jest, that an employer who is paying you many, many times your value and wining and dining you isn't doing enough is likely to leave a negative impression. One of the easy ways to fail the "fit" test is to come off as self-entitled or lacking judgment. Failed attempts at humor can quickly put you in one of those boxes.
