Embarassed @ Work


If you struggle to bounce back after getting embarassed at work, here's a story from early in my career that will hopefully make it a bit easier.

In 2007, I had been interviewing for a few weeks, and was so excited to finally receive an offer.

Wanting to get my dad's advice, I forwarded the offer letter to him.

And then, I waited...and waited...

Eventually HR forwarded me the email my dad had intended to send to me, but had sent to them instead.

🙃

I still laugh at the juxtoposition of my dad's prose and his use of Comic Sans.
