I hope anybody could take a look for me at this one, what does " you've got one up on me" mean in this context?
Thanks for your help.
Warden: How are those allergies?
Michael: Excuse me?
W:In your motion, you cited chronic, um...
M: It's not an allergy, actually. It's a bacterial infection.
M: The moist air from the river along the east wall helps keep me, you know...clear.
W: I'm impressed. Not even a week in here and you're already working it like an old con.
M: Well, you've got one up on me, Warden. You know why I needed to file those motions, but I have no idea why you needed to transfer me.
You are one step ahead of me in something.
