Happy Monday

I just walked in to work to find out that the huge project/new business pitch that I have been working on for over 2 weeks, that was presented yesterday in the midwest to the potential new client, was completely, totally, and utterly wrong.

Because of my work, my boss stood there humiliated in front of everyone, including the entire senior staff of my company.

The only response from the clients to our portion was if we would mind completely rewriting it.

Suddenly, it doesn't feel like Friday anymore.

I'm so sorry to read this...

Don't forget to drink water and nibble at healthy foods this weekend...

I'm so sorry, it totally ate some of the pretty weather for you too. I'm sure this is heavy on your head, but try not to let it get you down.
I suggest you allot several hours of this weekend to indulgences so you don't feel taken...it sucks to start stuff over when you think you're done. Then you can feel refreshed.
*slightly painful hug*
It'll be fine.

blah.

Was it really because of your work though? had the clients and your boss effectively communicated what they wanted? Did anyone change their mind on what they wanted?

This can be such a murky business :/

You have good comments there. It probably was a big case of the clients wanting to see x, and didn't see it, without really telling us. It is a niche, niche thing, and they clearly know about it more than I do.

I am very sorry that happened. If it was because YOU misunderstood or did the project incorrectly, that seriously sucks. If it was because you were not given good information from which to work, then it sucks in a very different way.

Either way, I'm sorry you have to deal with this!
