The Grass Is Greener

“Gail, you know how unhappy I’ve been at work,” Alex said.

“Yes, you’ve been quite overt complaining about how much you hate your job,” Gail said. “So vocal, in fact, that I’m surprised that you haven’t been fired yet.”

“And that’s precisely why I contacted the headhunter,” Alex said. “All I want to do is examine all of my options and improve my odds of finding a new and better job.”

“You’ve got almost seven years at the firm, Alex,” Gail said. “Are you sure it makes sense to go to a different place where you’ll be a newbie?”

“Don’t worry, Gail,” Alex said, “I’m a big believer in that old saying about the grass being greener on the other side of the fence.”

“That might be great if you were a gardener, Alex,” Gail said. “But you’re a lawyer, for crissake.”
