We had a town hall (organization-wide business meeting) today with my boss's boss. A part of her town hall, she introduced me as a new team member. She asked me to stand up and introduce myself and share a few fun facts about myself with the team.
Here's the weird thing: I've been on the team for 8 years now. 5 of those years, I've been had this same woman as my boss's boss.
While she has a fair number of employees in her org (maybe about 45), she should really know who I am. I've had 1-on-1 meetings were her 5 to 10 times. I chat her occasionally when we both get coffee at the same time. I won an "Employee of the Month" award two years ago, which she personally presented to me.
I feel like I know her reasonably well. I've chatted with her about projects and work. We occasionally chat about the Dallas Cowboys. Heck, I can even tell you the names of her dogs.
What am I supposed to make of this? Is there something I should be doing differently or better? Should I talk to her about this?
And since I'm sure a lot of people are going to ask, I'm positive this wasn't her idea of a joke. She's one of those people who NEVER tells jokes. I don't think anybody has ever seen her smile. Some coworkers have joked that they will give $100 to the first person who can make her laugh.
