During the whirlwind that was May and June, I received some documents from the person whose job I'm taking over. I kept those items in a file folder on the very computer I'm using to write this post.
And the file is gone. Or something - when I clicked on it, it said the folder had been moved and was actually linked to another folder (?). Those docs are just gone. So I've managed to drop the ball before my job even officially begins. Go me.
Okay. I can look at this one of two ways. In the first, I'm a horrible irresponsible degenerate who doesn't even deserve her $7/hour job. I'll have to spend the rest of the quarter bowing and scraping or kissing ass to make up for the loss of the files.
Alternatively, I'm someone who doesn't entirely understand what happened to her computer while it was sitting idle over the summer. I did what I thought was necessary to securely save the files, and somehow it didn't work. This is something that happens to everyone. With any luck, those were not the only copies of the files and we won't be sunk. I'll apologize and move on.
I'm going to try to go with scenario #2. Because, dammit, I'm going to have an okay senior year.
