Boss: I read something you wrote today. You're a very good writer.
Me: Thank you. *panics* What did you...read?
Boss: Oh, you know.
Me: *OH MY GOD SHE FOUND MY FANFIC* Like...not my fiction.
Boss: No! Sorry, it was an email. Do you write fiction? I'm not surprised.
Me: Oh, occasionally. ANYWAY, let's talk about this other thing having nothing to do with that...
It's awfully nice to be noticed, though. And to be rewarded, apparently; when I got home this afternoon I had a letter from work informing me that I was getting a 1% "merit" raise. It wasn't expected, given I've only been on the job ten months, but we only do salary evaluations once a year and I guess I have been a contributing member of the department. One percent after taxes and all the rest isn't much, but I will happily take what I can get.
I VOW TO GIVE 1% MORE EFFORT TO EVERY PROJECT I MANAGE!
