My guess is that he wants to treat you as any employee, but you may remind him of someone so he gives you little more leeway.
PLEASE ANSWER! My married employer said that I,m not special to him, he just has a soft spot for me. What does this mean?
It means he likes you as an employee ! You probably remind him of someone. Having a soft spot for someone is no big deal. He's not flirting or anything. He's just being nice is all.
I guess it could be.
So having a "Soft Spot" could be that you remind him of someone special in his life . . . A younger sibling, and best friend in school . . Heck even a younger version of himself.
Now phrases that should worry you is if they say they have a "Hard Spot" For you . . . . I'm sorry but the joke was RIGHT THERE . . . Honestly can anyone blame me?
Your boss is very unprofessional. Not sure why he needs to tell you he has a "soft spot for you". Bosses shouldn't show favorites.
I agree with Tiger, Rooster and Gator Blu.
I'll add stop discussing this "Type" special this and soft spot that. This talk can and usually leads to adultery.
Concentrate on your job. All you need is his respect.
Frankly, I don't have a clue.
If you're not "special" are you just plain old vanilla average,period?
If he has a "soft spot" for you, does he feel sorry for you and / or root for your team at the special Olympics?
He DOES NOT have a "way with words."
I think you might want to get this clarified.
