In line with my boss at the campus dining room today:
Boss: Stacey, have you met S0-And-So?
Me (extending hand): No, so nice to meet you! I'm the new managing editor.
So-And-So: I'm the executive assistant to the dean of students.
Me (feeling proud): Oh! I met him this morning!
S0-And-So: (perplexed look)
Me: Yes! Kevin introduced me to him when I was on my way in!
So-And-So (kindly): Um, the dean is on vacation this week.
I later realized that I'd met the dean of faculty in the morning. Oops. Students, faculty, six of one, half a dozen of the other.
