Today at work on of my clients calls me and asks for a favor. I'm new to this account so I'm not sure if we can fulfill her request. So, I go to the CEO to double check. He's also unsure, so he calls someone else to check.
The other person says, "No we don't do that. I'm surprised she asked you." CEO: "She didn't ask me. She asked Tiffani." The other person (who didn't know I was on the call): "Wow, she's going way down on the totem pole!"
