    "That's way beyond my pay grade."

    Typically spoken by someone in the employ of the government.

    Do people actually say that?


    Now for something completely different....

    The four most major cities in Texas are now a part of Google's StreetView feature, including Austin. They've done a whole bunch of cities across the US. I cannot believe they drove down every single street. They must have hated Austin because of the traffic.

    So if you knew my address, you could go check out the entrance to my apartment complex. Kind of cool, but kind of creepy. I like our street because there are lots of trees and all of the residences are well-maintained, but not too perfect (like the suburb in Edward Scissorhands).

    Weird, I've never heard someone say that and I am a government employee. I have heard people grumble that something isn't in the contract or job description though.

    It's usually a cop or military person who's saying it, I think. The last show I saw it on was Battlestar Galactica, but it happens all the time on those cop shows.

    Yeah. I'll tell you, as someone employed in the military, people complain about paygrade sometimes. I don't know that I've heard someone say, specifically, "That's not in my pay grade" but I've defnitely heard things like "I can't believe I'm being told to do X, Y, and Z. I'm a twelve!" and "Can you believe that so-and-so got a bonus like that? She's only a six, and she's being treated like a thirteen." So, yeah, people are definitely aware of paygrades around here. I don't think it's something we talk about all the time or anything, but it comes up.
