    I exceed expectations.

    I think that the curry beard pushed them over the edge.

    we're about to be awarded a $4M grant at work that I helped write...no one at work knows it yet...I am about to exceed expectations myself.

    Yup.

    I could use a $4M grant. If you could swing that for me I'd more than happy to write you a glowing review.

    That's what happens with low expectations Joe!

    Congrats Joe.

    At my company there is an Exceeds Expectations rating, but nobody is allowed to rate anyone above Meets Expectations.... seriously. There is also some "walks on water" rating that is above that, but it's just a waste of ink to print it also because it can never get used.

    I think it's their goal to drive everyone to the mediocrity of average...it's working.

    I am lucky in that I have a pretty awesome boss.

    What's the opposite of a micromanaging boss? Oh, yeah: a good boss.

    She tells me what to do and I do it. She never asks me to do it a particular way, never comes in and asks me what's going on, what I am doing, why am I spending so much time on RBR and Flickr. She doesn't care what I do so long as I do my job well, which makes for a happy Joe which means that work gets done and I am pleasant and helpful to everyone.

    My last boss (before I got here) was a micromanaging d*ckwad. Which makes for a combative Joe who will confront and fight everything along the way.
