I really wish I was able to handle job offers more gracefully.
Firstly, whatever happens, I'm working for Sun again. I'm happy with that.
Now, here comes me being stupid in a very Aoife-like way:
I got a call today from PIT offering me a job. What did I do except say that I had a mild preference for Patch and that I'd like to see what the outcome was there, although I'd be happy to work for them. Naturally this wasn't exactly the expected response of the hiring manager (it would have helped if HR did the running of that one), so he sounded a bit flustered as he said that it was natural and that he knew I was applying for both. So he's going to check with Patch for me, and call back soon.
Still, I feel like a dolt being in this position. They're only "second choice" because Patch sold themselves a bit better.
