This has been an odd week in the sense that I got compliments from unexpected sources. Two of them came from my boss. She NEVER gives out compliments. Well, hardly ever. She's one of those hard to please bosses and doesn't give many compliments at all. She's a task master and doesn't like excuses. Now that I've started her list of positives, she is one of the top bosses I've worked for and I've had several.
I don't remember what all she said in her compliment, because I was in shock, but it was something to the affect of how I do a really good job and that although we're extremely busy and short staffed at work right now, I have a really good attitude toward pitching in and helping out with the additional work. That's the gist of what I got. Again, I was in a bit of shock that I was receiving a compliment — from MY boss!
Then one of my doctors said I was a model patient. I won't go into the whole story, but I have a special medical condition with special instructions I've been given. At my recent follow up appointment, my special doctor bragged on me. This special doctor is no nonsense and not one to mince her words and complimented ME! That made me feel wonderful!! Hee. Hee!
And then one more compliment from my boss. I just found this one out today. To make a long story short, my boss noted in an e-mail to some of her superiors that I was one of the best members of her team...and there are over 15 people on her team. That one officially falls into the the "too good to be true" category. Of course, it's how I feel about my work, but didn't think she felt that way. I'm on cloud nine.
I hope she remembers she said that come review time!!
