Interesting conversation with my manager #PassiveAggressive
I had a 1:1 with my manager and he asked me what resources I am using to learn and build on my skills. He seemed pretty friendly and we just talked about a meme, so I thought this was going to be casual.
(Not so Seriously) , I told him that I have been using WSO to learn about the industry and Blind for insider news about our company. To my bad I quoted a funny incident that I saw on a post.
After the discussion he said " I didn't expect that from you. You should spend more time reading book and listening to podcasts". I told him about it this Monday, and he's not making eye contact with me now.
Turns out there was a company wide meeting (before I joined), that urged employees to not use these anonymous forums. I think that's against right to speech!?
Maybe I shouldn't have been so informal with him. I was just being casual to have a hearty convo, perhaps to make friends with him.
Now, I feel like shit. What should I do?
