From Anonymous:

As a new assistant professor, I was asked to join a multi-departmental collaborative working group preparing a grant. At the initial meeting, when the participants were milling about greeting each other, I heard a researcher comment to the colleague with whom I had walked in, “What a great idea it was to bring your secretary! Now we’ll all have accurate meeting notes!” My colleague awkwardly corrected the misperception and noted my areas of expertise, but that initial interaction has colored all of my dealings with the other researcher to this day.
