My whole team fucked up this weekend and I ended up being stuck digging myself out of sand for two hours extra today. Idiots.

My new manager was talking to me after it and made a comment about how its kind of shitty that the CTO said "we need to have someone intelligent working on this!" and my only response was "yeah thats our company for ya, they dont encourage or understand triage or troubleshooting and just want heads on spikes".

The look on his face was kinda priceless, hope shattered right in front of my eyes.

My first big assignment at my new job is to give a product demo to my boss. I’ve been writing and rewriting one sentence for half an hour now. Ugh. I can’t close this thing.

Try to be generally hopeful about the proposed project. Tactfully admitting inexperience isn't a failure.
