You remind me of my husband. This is what my former supervisor said to me during an argument we had. I am still not sure if I should have taken that remark as a compliment or an insult. We were discussing a work process which I wasn't in agreement with and I was quite persistent in voicing my displeasure. I assumed she meant her husband had the same style of arguing as I had which seemed to have frustrated her. Oh well! Has anyone ever compared you to someone else because of something you said or did?

If your style of arguing reminded her of her husband and she seemed frustrated , then imagine what she has to deal with on a daily basis with her husband.

I usually get, "You are just like my mom."

A compliment I imagine, depending on who is saying it.

I am sure she meant your opinion or style was similar. I can't think of anyone doing that to me.

I think that is the more likely answer

Oh dear, that was not good was it, the way your former supervisor said! Every time I argued a point (when I was a child), my mother always sighed, said, 'You are going to be a good barrister! No one could win arguing against you!' (That always shut me up nicely, since I understand that she meant, 'shut up!')

That is the same thing my mom used to say to me. "You should be a lawyer" and at one point I even believed her and wanted to prove that I could - I applied to law school but didn't follow through.

@Freelanzer I never followed that career since I don't think my mother was right. Defend our rights efficiently (as many of us have done so when we're forced to do so) is different to fight for others for a living.

I thought the same thing. If I was being a pain this once imagine having to live with that.

I can't really remember being compared to anyone else. I can understand how you wouldn't know if it were a compliment or an insult.

One thought perhaps is that she has a husband who irritates her and I was doing the same.

My answer is here:
Many years ago I fell on my elbow when I was getting off my bike. It hurt only for a short while and I thought that was it. Yet, after some years, my elbow hurt...

I have a habit of interrupting people when they are talking. I don't mean to, it just happens. Before I retired I had a wonderful female boss but once when she was trying to explain something to me I kept doing my party trick and interrupting. She shouted at me "Listen! You're just like Kevin!" (her husband). That shut me up

This supervisor was a favorite of mine too and we got along well. I guess I pushed her over the edge but it didn't affect our relationship. Funny that your supervisor said the same thing to you.

Seeing that she said it during an argument you were having it seems she did not mean it nicely

I don't think she did but wondered what that said about her relationship
