I am steaming.
A couple of weeks ago I told a colleague, D, about an idea I had to save the company some money.
Today I was in Head Office and met up with one of the directors. We had a little chat and he told me he was very excited about an idea D had told him. You guessed it, it was my idea.
I could not believe it.
What should I have done? Should I have told him that I’d suggested it to D? I thought that would have sounded a bit petulant. Should I have spoken to D about it? Not my style – much as I would like it to be.
So what did I do? I said it was a very good idea and I'd thought about it too. Pathetic!
