(153) And It Was All Down Hill From There....

I started the week off with an AWESOME weekend, came back to work on Tuesday, ready to kick some butt (figuratively off course) and then things started going wrong. Too many meetings, not enough time to get my work done, staying late just about every night, and to top it all off, I ruined something at work today. First time in 18 years on my job....and this thing is toast. Ready for the dumpster. And I feel like crap about it. I know I did something wrong, but I don't know what....I'll find out on Monday, when the "expert" comes back from being off sick. Not happy about having to tell him this. Told the boss right away, and of course he was consoling. Not the end of the world.

But I absolutely HATE screwing something up. And I "guilt" over it forever.....

Ugggghhhh......and the worst part is that I don't even know how I did this.

Can you say "robot programming"? .........................damn.


  1. I hate that too, and I guilt over it for a long time as well. Good for you for going to the boss right away, and make sure the "expert" shows you what went wrong and how to do it right!

    Now take a deep breath, forgive yourself for being human, let go of it, and have a good weekend. :D

  2. Don't sweat it. One mistake in 18 years is not at all unexpected. Give yourself a break and remember how well you have done outside of this one mistake. It is completely overshadowed by your competence for all these years. Just a blip on the screen. Hugs. :)
