    How embarrassing. Long story cut short: depression..emotional periods sometimes very emotional..today was one of those days...made a foo- foo at work...hauled into office and given a talking to...got upset and cried..still upset now but also angry with myself for being so childish.

    I'm just very diligent at work (well I thought I was) and making mistakes makes me look incompetent. He also brought up a few other things which I thought was showing good customer service. ah I';m just too damn helpful and nice.

    This is after a few bullying comments from him (for the past while) but the guy wrote me a good reference so :dontknow:
    :mad:

    OP, this is why I'm so scared to get a job lol!

    Don't worry, it's not childish.

    Does your boss know you're depressed?

    We've all been there! I don't know that I'm truly settled into a job until I've cried in front of someone about something!! Lol. Believe me we all do it, you'll learn that when you start working full-time, work is stressful and can get you down sometimes! I'm learning to control it now, but I can still come home and bawl my eyes out after a bad day, it's good to let it all out rather than bottle it and at least it shows your boss that you care enough to get upset!

    lawl, I am full-time :o: I'm a shop asst btw

    I do care, that's the thing. I care too much :p: today for the first few hours I was doing the job of two people but I like that I can show that I'm happy enough working away by myself like that.

    I've a confidence crisis though and I'm applying for university this year. I feel too stupid for that atm

    thanks though :hugs:

    how do you mean? well nothing disciplinary thankfully but it's further denting my confidence in my work ability so dear knows what that's going to do.

    I just feel that if I can't even do a retail job without, how am I going to competently study for my degree and do other jobs without making a booby

    It happens to everyone sweetie, sometimes all it takes is a rude customer or a snide comment:console: Don't worry about it, it'll be forgotten about soon enough and at least it shows that you do care about your job and how well you do it :yes:

    Before I went travelling I was really stressed and worked in a call centre where people would just be so mean and so rude to you, and I cried twice in one week at one point!

    Don't feel embarassed, just keep trying

    Oh and also, don't put up with the bullying comments! Mention it to other colleagues and see if it's just you or whether he's just a ****, if he is singling you out then don't stand it, report it/go to his senior if need be!

    Sounds like a bad decision to me, I wouldn't promote a flaky emotional mess, your boss was probably a woman

    :hugs: thanks yeh, I've been crying so much this week, already (pms and just general depression I suppose)



    oh, and to the person who asked if he knows about my depression and anxiety, I told him the other day (well in a round-about way) when i was asking him for a reference for UCAS (I'm going to be a mature student )he didn';t seem to take much notice though

    I just feel awful thinking about it though
