You remind me of my husband

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?

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!')

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
