Great post. More folks should be sharing these kinds of stories. We are all human and we make mistakes. It is going to happen, but we can always learn from them. I am glad to see your boss reacted so well and helped you through it. It's also great to hear they put blame on themselves as well. That is not common for a lot of people who go through situations like this.
Also, great use of GIFs. Especially that last one. It fits perfectly. :)
Thank you! I am very lucky to work in such a supportive environment. Some people don't have that and I am hoping others will share some of their stories so that everyone can realize we are all in this together and downtime is just an occupational hazard.
