New Guy

There’s a new guy in our swing shift group and he beats himself up about all the little mistakes he makes :(

It’s okay. You’ve been here for less than 3 weeks, and there’s a lot of stuff to take in; none of us expect you to pick it all up on the first try. Hell, just make any and all the mistakes you can as soon as possible so you maximize your exposure to everything. One hiccup isn’t going to bring the entire company down nor is it going to get you fired. You’re going to have good days when you’ll leave in disbelief that you worked 8 hours; and bad days where it’s been only 2 hours since you’ve walked through the door and think ‘this day can just fuck right off.’

We’ve all been where you are and know what it’s like. It doesn’t matter if you’ve been working here for 4 months or 4 years, you’re going to make mistakes because you’re human. It’s going to be okay.

I’m now certified to drive the company’s transport vehicles and, shortly after my hands-on training, I took off a small clump of my building while reversing a box truck LOL OOPS
