#BEDM Day 25: Something Somebody Said
Something someone told you about yourself that you’ll never forget
There are two things vying in my mind for this entry, and both make me smile.
The first happened well over a decade ago, when I was just a slip of a boy. Serving on a till, a customer told me, completely apropos of nothing, that I had a lovely smile and that when I smiled I looked like Hugh Grant (this was when Hugh Grant was attractive and famous and presumably not banging slappers). And I guess I do a bit, when my face is thin.
The second was also a very long time ago and was spoken by my manager at the time. When comparing me to a colleague, he said “the difference between you two is that they make a massive fuss and look really busy but don’t actually achieve a lot, whereas you’re more or less the other way around.” This is possibly the piece of feedback I am most proud of in my entire career.
