I Shall Call Her..Mini Me

At work, my co-workers constantly ask me questions. I’m the go to guy for information. It doesn’t matter if the President and CEO were around, they would defer to my knowledge. As much as I’d like to take credit for it, it’s a simple matter of reading and comprehension. All the tools are at our fingertips, and what can I say? I ‘m literate. That’s not to say that they aren’t, but I have an ability to understand what I read and remember it. I usually have the answer before they finish their long winded questions, and if I don’t know the answer, I say I don’t know, unlike some people who try to talk in circles or make up some stuff. It works out well for all involved. I like being right, they like getting the right answer, and the manager likes not being bothered with things that I have more knowledge of. In fact, even he hits me up from time to time when he’s trying to figure something out.

It was brought to my attention that one of my co-workers is trying to take my place as the Answer Man. I don’t mind, it would be okay with me if they hit someone else up every now and again. But there is just one problem… SHE DON'T KNOW NOTHING!!! I never really noticed it until today. Someone will address me by name and ask me a question. Before I can even fix my mouth to answer it, here she comes loud and wrong. I shall call her... Mini-Me! I’ll give you a made up example.

Co-Worker: What color do yellow and blue make?
Rashan: Gre
Mini-Me: Magenta!
Rashan: WRONG!!! (said like Charlie Murphy in the Rick James skit)

Obviously, I can’t give real examples of what they ask me, but its stuff that anybody who has been doing this job for more than 2 months should be able to answer. It’s bad enough that they ask about it, but for the Mini Me to be wrong so much is even worse. Don’t try to help me. I know what I’m talking about. I don’t ever get the scrunched up nose and the slightly tilted head indicating that they aren’t sure about what I just told them. It’s funny. At least 4 times since 4PM when it was brought to my attention, Mini Me tried to interject while I was answering a question. Go sit down somewhere, Mini-Me!

So someone calls you by name, asks you a question, then as you respond she hops in with the wrong answer...

The next time she spit out the wrong answer I would give the right answer to the asker after her error, then ask her if her name was Rashan because clearly the question was posed to you.

She is rude.

If you're gonna jump into a conversation or cut folks off, the least you can do is have the right answer.

Somebody needs to tell her that!! lol

When she begins to give her answer, ask her loudly, if her given name is Rashan.
