girlie mouse from userpicks

I play one on TV

Playing department administrator when I haven't previously been one sometimes means I need to ask various strangers what I assume are dumb questions.  I'm not a dept admin, but it was understood that I would be assuming as much of that role as my boss felt comfortable with so he would be free to do his thing.

One rule I took from my previous position was to figure as much out as possible without asking the boss for details I could find elsewhere.  My old boss was hell on wheels.  My current boss is a very nice person.  Still, I figure not bugging him with a lot of niggling questions is a good thing and makes me look competent.  Looking dumb to the property insurance lady in email is a small price to pay.
