Well, they officially hired a new lawyer. I was going to do a whole post on how I rank my daily depression levels, but this news came first. Suffice it to say that today's depression level is "crippling."
The new guy, who will be replacing Attorney 4, starts on Monday. Since they just told him he got the job yesterday, I think it's safe to assume he's currently unemployed. He better have a lot more experience than I do or I'm going to livid...though completely incapable of doing anything about it.
Also, this is throwing off the way I reference my co-workers. Should he be Attorney 6? I suppose that's the easiest way to do it.
I get that he had nothing to do with this, but I'm going to have a very hard time not being pissed off at the new guy. Maybe he'll be annoying so that my hatred of him will at least be partially justified.
