mentioned him before, guy that sounds like he's holding back tears when he laughs. rarely publishes, has never been able to hold a stable relationship because he's too obsessed with fake romances simulated by barmaids, got redpilled too late and rants to normal people about topics you should not be talking about in public. takes alcoholic naps and is unreachable in the early evening. love him dearly, but hope there's still time not to become him. if i ever hear him in my own laugh, i know that something very bad has happened.

He's the Old Man to your Continental Op. I have a similar figure.

is this an archetype? the old man in whose eyes you can see yourself and shiver?

A big theme of the continental op stories is job as identity. They were written in the depression, and part of the loss of the depression was not just pecuniary, but of a portion of self — if you couldn't work in your trade, who were you?

But there is also dissatisfaction on the other side. The Continental Op is loyal to his job, the consummate Op, but he can see his future in The Old Man, who has not a trace of human sympathy left in him.

I'm gonna have to get back into try harding in litigation for a time. It is all so tiresome.

Does your family need the $? You’re smart and perceptive enough to do other things that could still make a good wage.

Hey, thanks! Family always needs the money. And there's the identity thing I intimated above. I gripe about working, but can't abide idleness.

Hear that, tho I think a false dichotomy vs idleness. Def know ppl whose identity is inextricable from their gc scraping, and it gets bleak after the apex. The other kind of “of counsel” as it were
