How I Became Known as The Tick

My boss, who I have worked for longer than anyone else in my career, was attempting to bestow upon the crowd at our annual Sales Meeting , the virtues of my performance the previous year. He used the analogy that my troubleshooting skills were like that of a tick, who burrows into the skin in search of blood, that I never stop until I find the root cause of an issue. My coworkers, who show no mercy, immediately latched onto the idea. I decided to own it, and now I am affectionately known as The Tick.

This is my blog.
