You don't believe I could be a supreme court justice! You're ruining my self-esteem! F.Y.I? … Whiny tirades don't look good on a supreme court justice's record. Thank you for your candid assessments. I will certainly consider their merits. Fine judicial temperament. And reject them for their shallow insensitivity! Rejection overruled.
You've ruined my life! Again? You're married, you work and you own our house. With the bank. Where's the ruination? I'll never have a compelling life story of struggle and triumph. How will I ever get into the supreme court? Hard work? Too much struggle.
