I've been doing a lot of fishing, lately, for information about this year's crop of jobs and job candidates. I had heard through several branches of the grapevine that someone I know had been offered a job by World Famous University--information that suprised and somewhat disgruntled me. I like this person, at least officially. . . but not enough that I was prepared to be truly happy on his/her behalf.
Well. I just learned that my several sources have been wrong: it's not World Famous University's main campus, but a different and less prestigious one (it's not a satellite campus in the classic sense, but it's certainly not the institution that everyone had thought was under discussion).
Is it wrong for me to be vastly pleased by this news?
