How I know I’m no longer in charge

I’m working in my office downstairs. Upstairs off the kitchen is the deck that usually contains peanuts for the Stellar Jays that hang around here. Apparently I forgot to put peanuts out today. As I sat working, I heard a thump on the window next to my desk. I thought for sure a bird had flown into it. But no. It was a Stellar Jay tapping to get my attention. He clung to the windowsill and glared at me. I took the hint and went upstairs to put the peanuts out. He was waiting for me at the peanut table.
