I guess I would say that the best compliment I’ve received came from a former boss, who told me that I was the best on my team at completing tasks related to inventory and organization, and that was why I was always selected from the group for special projects in that area of our workplace–because our lead manager noticed a difference from when I was working on those projects or not and said that I was his preferred pick to complete those tasks! My cynical side says we’ll see whether I’m still “the best” when it’s time for my yearly evaluation and potential raise, heh heh. But I guess a compliment is a compliment and it’s nice to feel valued.
