I just got hired as a part-time Web Technician at a University this past Monday, today, one of my supervisors asked me to help out another staff member from another department on their website.
I was able to solve the task and also offer some not too technical tips to this staff member. A few minutes after getting back to the office, the staff I just left her office sent an email to my department thanking them for sending me their way and how nice I was.
The email was then forwarded to me with an extra line that looks like,
"Hey John, nice complement here from Doe".
Then my response was
Yay! One "customer" down, many to go"
After sending the email, I began to doubt if my usage of
"customer" was appropriate.
Customer was quoted.
