    How do you take it if your co-employee who happens to be your supervisor calls you "my employee?"

    A supervisor who is not senior management is as much as an employee of the company as the one he or she is supervising.  Does this justify the "ownership.?"

    Meh, if she is your supervisor then it is a "split hair." She may not technically be your employer, but she has authority over you and that is what is being communicated by the term "employee." We don't have a commonly used word to describe the exact relationship, for example, she could have said "my supervisee" but it sounds less conversational.

    Personally I don't appreciate the "my employee" reference or the  "newbie" adjective. At the end of the day, the annoyance is minor.
