If you had asked Jane, she would have told you that when visitors show up, the common people (bee-workers) are supposed to become invisible and let the "one voice" of the elders take over and speak.
Then there is the group of "specials" who normally just keep themselves apart from the daily activities and the bee-workers. Ricky was most likely in this group, isolated maybe by orders or by choice.
But no, it was not strange to leave you alone with the boss. That is the standard operating procedure.
