    with

    Is there any difference in the meaning between "with(1)" and "with(2)" ?


    1. We are looking for people with(1) a lot of experience.
    2. My wife screamed at our children to get up and get dressed, to come to breakfast, to get ready for school, and to catch the school bus. But It left me and our children with(2) jangled nerves every morning, with a great desire to get as far from the house as possible in the shortest possible time.

    'With' has pretty much the same meaning in both cases. But you could make a case for their meaning being different if you had to. But why would you bother if you understand the sentences?
