Day 336 - Monday 1st December

Embarrassment - Embarrassment is an emotional state experienced upon having a socially or professionally unacceptable act or condition witnessed by or revealed to others

Well I have had a few of these in my time, but probably the worse one recently being this weekend. We had network issues at work on Saturday so I went into reboot stuff, but in my haste to get things back up and running again, I didn’t take much notice of what I was doing and managed to put the wrong power supplies back into the equipment. I didn’t notice my mistake because everything powered back on again. Because I still couldn’t get the systems back up and running, an engineer came all the way from Harlow and within 10 minutes pointed out my mistake. I was absolutely mortified!
