Ready for this one, ladies?
This morning, the exec producer literally patted me on the head! Can you flippin believe that? I don't know how to take the gesture and am slightly insulted. The way I see it, the intentions stem from one of the following beliefs:
1- I am physically short enough that I literally temped him to show his appreciation by patting me on my head.
2- He was patronizing me!
3- He just wanted to touch me... ew?
It was such a bizarre gesture and now I am left feeling perplexed beyond belief. What am I his pet? Actually the more I think about, the more mortified I am!
If it happens again I might try to morph the movement into a high five! I high five I can definitely deal with, but a pat on the head is just too unusual. I mean what if the assistants and other crew members followed suit? Can you just imagine?
'Thanks for the coffee, Rose!' -pat on the head.
'You're in early today, Rose!' -pat on the head.
OMG, what a nightmare!
