In a new school. Met the P & AP already. Setting up my room no kids yet. The other AP who I hadn't met came by my room to say hello and introduced himself. I said "nice to meet you. What subject do you teach?" He said "Oh, no im actually the other assistant principal". I could die!!!

He should have said, Hello I'm Mr. so-so. the assistant principal. Welcome to our school. Maybe it will become a private joke over the year.

Don't feel bad. Two years ago I went into Principal's office to say hello before I set up. There were 2 young women there and they were introduced to me as Mrs. ... and Mrs..... So I said hello, nice to meet you. What grades are you teaching?
NO NO... they are our new assistant principals.
No big deal lol

I did the same thing 4 years ago. No offense taken. Don't worry at all.

I agree that he should have introduced himself as the AP.

We see so many people on a daily basis that it is hard to keep track of people. There is one person in our central office who has called me by the wrong name for years. It is funny because I used to correct him. Now I just answer to it! He's a little older and very kind, so I don't want to embarrass him when he is just being friendly.

If you've never met him before, how could you be expected to know? I wouldn't give it a second thought.

There was absolutely nothing unusual or noteworthy about what you said. If he made you think that, then he is weird.
