Talk:beyond one's pay grade

Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary
Jump to: navigation, search

This usually has the connotation of "I'd do that if you give me a raise" kindof thing, but I'm not sure how to word that. That aspect may just be too specific? --Connel MacKenzie 20:41, 25 October 2007 (UTC)

I don't know. I just like the expression and the quotes fit with how I've heard it used. I, too, have heard it a sense of "I don't get paid enough to worry about that". Maybe that is the subtext in the Congressional testimony. "You want me to talk about policy? Make me a General." Irony use is hard to capture and wouldn't work so well without the straight meaning.

Should this have been "beyond one's pay grade", with a redirect from "beyond my pay grade"? DCDuring 21:48, 25 October 2007 (UTC)
