I was heralded as a genius when I arrived at work today. No kidding. All the users showed up, and I came in an hour early to assist them with the new changes that me and the new guy stayed late and worked on the night before. You know, answering questions and performing some basic follow-up. Instead, I heard voice after voice calling out that I'm "the Man", that I'm awesome, and that I am an absolute genius. Even got a hug!
I can count the number of times that's happened on one finger. But damn, it was still pretty cool. Pretty much made my day.
[EDIT]: Also had one of the front-desk receptionist girls at the other company mention, completely randomly, that WOW I look so much more slender in blue. Of course, I'd like to think it's because I've dropped those 25 pounds in the past two months, but hey, it's still a compliment I'll gladly take. XD
