Reasonable Motivations

Dr. S- "We thought Job Candidate was just jerking us around because they were trying to get a better job elsewhere and they didn't really want to teach here.  But it turns out they just wanted more money."

Me: "Well that's MUCH better."


  1. Can't tell if your MUCH is ironic or not! I guess jerking people around is never justified, but I think asking for more money is! I mean, they can always say no!

    1. Oh! No, the whole department and Dr. S and I all felt that more money was, in fact, a perfectly reasonable reason to delay and negotiate!
