Stand tall, raise your arms, and say, "YES MINION! YOU HAVE MY PERMISSION!"
Then sit back down as if nothing has happened.
Sounds like an excellent response. :)
This happens at work with me too. I'm not always too sure how to react to it either. He's newer than I am, so that makes some things more understandable, but it's still a little off putting.
Haha! I wouldn't know how to react to that! Though, it sounds like it's a compliment to you. Like he respects your opinion. That could be him second guessing his choices as well.
Lol I would totally feel the same way!
Are you an advisor then.
If so that is your job!
If not ask for an Upgrade in position and salary!
