My boss and I were sitting in her office last week discussing a tracking database. I had just finished explaining why it was convoluted, outdated, and unnecessary. She agreed, and then we had a conversation that went something like this:
Boss: I can’t even find the screen I was just on.
Me (not looking at the monitor): Click on the back button until you’re at Tier 2. Now go down to the third T3 button and click on that. Are those the measures you were looking for?
Boss: I thought you said this was too convoluted and you didn’t understand it?
Me: Sometimes my brain scares me.
Boss: It scares me, too.
I prefer to think that was a compliment.
