Reason Hinty-Billion I love my freaking job.

Me, to my boss: Oh my God! What IS this? Why do I have this?

Boss, looking over my shoulder: Because you are a SME (Subject Matter Expert).

Me: OH MY GOD! ACCORDING TO WHOM?!?! WHAT THE HELL IS THIS? WHO SAYS I'M A FREAKING SUBJECT MATTER EXPERT?!?!

Boss: Me.

Me: Oh.

Boss, walking away shaking her head slightly: *sigh*

Me, calling after her: Thank you for your, um, confidence in me.

Boss: Good God Stephanie!



End scene.




Repeat daily. Numerous times on various topics.

This sounds so much like something that I would do / say. Thanks for sharing - nice to know I am not alone. :)

the exact same thing happens to me all day long.

and my bosses are one year old twins.

except they don't have confidence in me. they usually just lower their shaking heads.

nevermind.
