Maybe I'll Be Staying Home With Harry After All

Something got fucked up at work today.

Someone senior to me said "Can we do X?" And I said sure. On its face, it seemed reasonable. For a reason neither of us thought of but which we were equally capable of recognizing, it turned out doing X was not a good plan. I fear that if a head must roll, it may be mine, even though it wasn't entirely my fault. Fuck. Fuck fuck fuck. Fuck.

Oh, and it's 6:30 on a Friday night and I'm still here. This is the third night this week that I've missed Harry's dinner, and may be the first that I miss bedtime. I want to curl up in a corner right now.

Well damn. I'm sorry. And now the weekend will be a stew pot. I had this happen to me recently as well. Not a good feeling at all. But my boss didn't seem as angry about it as I was, hopefully no heads will be rolling in your case. I hope things come out exactly as you'd like them...or at least somewhat close. =0)

Well, when I saw your title, I thought your head had already rolled. I hope it doesn't come to that. Good luck!

I hate that feeling in the pit of your stomach when something goes wrong at work and you think "could I have done something to prevent this". Deep breaths - you probably won't remember it in a month.
