I’m definitely feeling inadequate when I refuse to let my boss praise me to my coworker.
“Not to put any pressure on you, but K filed two stories today [for the weekly section]”, she told him. “And she brought me a root beer float.”
I pipe up, “Yeah, but I’m not doing anything else and [coworker] is writing two stories a day for the daily paper.”
Probably shouldn’t have offered that information.
