Am I being sent a message?

I don't know. I just don't know. I got an email message this afternoon from my boss, informing me that for my yearly job evaluation, I had been given an "E".
Now, reading the rest of the message, it transpired that the letter most likely stands for "excellent" (gratefully received, though I think that given the way the scale is supposed to work I ought to have received the next grade down: but I'm not going to go into the office to make that case!): but nowhere in the message does it spell that out.
And I'm well aware that in many circumstances an "E" is not considered "passing with flying colours". In some cases, it is not even passing.

Maybe he's trying to tell me something.

Yours, at ease,
