I’ve been at this particular job for over a year and a half.
Not a significant amount of time, but long enough to have learned the ropes, etc.
So I think I have the right to be a bit pissed when I was introduced today by my boss as, “The new (insert old curator’s name).”
She had a bad habit of doing that in the first few months of my employment, and it irked me then; not the new part, obviously, just attaching me to someone else’s name. I spent the greater part of last year re-working things and trying to clean up messes I was left with, so I don’t particularly care for that name.
I am overreacting, or would this make you a bit miffed, too?
Perhaps I need to get a name-tag.
