How to Deflect a Compliment

My delightful boss: It's 3:00 on a Friday afternoon in summer, and you just had an outstanding annual review, so why are you still in the office?

Me (blurting): I'm already starting to earn next year's evaluation.

Apparently I just don't know when to quit, huh?

Can't take a hint, either.

  2. As someone who used to supervise approximately forty people and had many evaluations to do each year, this made me smile.

Talk to me! I love external validation.
