Just so you know who's really in charge. :)

The man who is my boss has had three different jobs here since I started. When he was selected as Dean of the Library, I remember stopping in his doorway one day (while he was still associate director) and asking "when you're Dean, will I still report directly to you, or to one of the others up here?" Contemplating the possible outcomes of working for one of the others was a rich image, with various possible outcomes.

After a silent pause, I concluded "I think I'll keep reporting to you."

And that was it. Sometimes underlings do have a say in these matters. :)
