AUTHOR: My Something TITLE: Quandary STATUS: Draft ALLOW COMMENTS: 1 CONVERT BREAKS: 1 ALLOW PINGS: 0 PRIMARY CATEGORY: DATE: 12/22/2003 07:47:00 PM ----- BODY: Here’s the situation: A new vice president started a couple of months ago. She’s in a department that has minimal interaction with mine as far as our work is concerned. However, her office is close to my department and we are always running into each other. For some bizarre reason, she was never brought around and introduced or came around on her own to introduce herself. So while I know who she is, we’ve never formally “met”. We always run into each other in the copy annex (you know, where the copiers, fax machines, coffee and water dispensers are) and we say hello, exchange formalities, whatnot. But technically, I shouldn’t “know” her and she shouldn’t “know” me. Then last week, she gave me a congratulations because my picture was in a trade magazine. That was weird because that means she knows my name yet we’ve never “met”. And at this point it would be really lame for one of us to say, “by the way, my name is . . .” This may sound completely bizarre to you non-corporate, non-office types but I really don’t know what I should do, if anything. I should probably just forget about it. But it still feels weird. ----- EXTENDED BODY: ----- EXCERPT: ----- --------
