According to some people, the SLEs I know are always complimenting me, but never to my face. Apparently they will be the first person in the room to say something like "that was such a good idea," "she does such good work," "she is so pretty/smart/etc."
Whenever I hear this, I'm always like "WTF?" because these people make no indication to me of remotely liking or respecting me. I'm always surprised, flattered, and really confused why they never say these things in my presence.
Can anyone explain this?
