Have I been at this client too long?

Another consultant from my Firm was in a meeting with a department that I've never worked with. When a question came up about my area of expertise, the client in the other department told my colleague that the best point of contact would be ... me.

My colleague said, "that's funny, we have a consultant with the same name as that!"
The other client said, "no no, he's definitely an employee here. I'm sure of it."

(Sigh)

Ouch! Well, it's better than when someone calls you the intern or the co-op student, though!
