I totally fucked up last week at work. Let’s just say I was overzealous in cleaning house. Something very important was lost.

Fortunately, there were backups, from which I was able to restore everything today. My employers seem to be taking the position of “no harm, no foul”.

I felt like a moron for most of my workday, but by the end of everything I was cheerfully humming as I wrapped up the last few articles.

I am very lucky there were backups. I’m sure my mood wouldn’t have bounced back if there hadn’t been.

A lesson learned!
