I think I deserve an acting award!!!
I just had my yearly evaluation at work, and it was fantastic. Should get me a decent and hopefully hefty raise, hopefully one that'll let me keep getting enough gas to get to work.
So, here's the line from my review that had even my wife wondering who the heck my boss was talking about, because it certainly can't be me - It's in the section on communication:
"Scott is a great listener and is fully present when he is talking with you."
WOW!!! I should be getting an award! That's is absolutely awesome. It's hilarious! Me? Present! HA! This is great, I'm smiling big time as I type this. I can't tell you the number of times I come out of a meeting with a few notes, but wondering what the heck we talked about and wondering if I'm supposed to be doing any follow-up. Heck there are times I know I'm supposed to be doing something but I'm really not sure what. I was always taught to make eye contact when talking to someone. Guess that's all you need to do to convince someone you're paying attention. I make eye contact when I'm talking, even when it's uncomfortable as all hell, but that doesn't mean my mind isn't 5 million miles away in some fantasy universe!!!
Maybe I should move to CA and see if I can get a job in Hollywood!!!! Hmmm maybe move to Vancouver and see if they need an actor in the last season of BSG!!! Probably a little late to be in that series. Ah well.
