All Of The Above(sort of)

I've had quite a few jobs, but am currently unemployed and loving it, where I've done just about all of those things. Really screwed me up, but oh well. I'll get a new job some day.

No regrets?

High self esteem is just as bad as low self esteem.

I REGRET NOTHING!!

Seriously, I don't regret any of the things I've ever done. Everything that everyone does is just another bit of experience that molds them as a person. So even the things that I knew I shouldn't have done... I would do them again. Because that's the decision I made. And obviously, it seemed like the right thing to do at the time.

Work Regret

One of the clients I dealt with was very long winded. His knowlege of details was incredible; his sharing of those details was torturous. Details mind you that had nothing to do with his inquiry. At one point he actualy told me about the different types of sand in New Mexico, the order of planets, and something about crows. His phone call inquiries would typically last over an hour. After a particularly long marathon phone event, I wrote an e-mail to my supervisor and co-worker explaining that nothing short of bamboo under the finger nails could get me to talk to this client again. You can guess what happened. Somehow or another I mailed this to the client as well as my supervisor. Just so you know, I don't work there anymore, but not because of this incident.

regret at work(2ND TRY)

One of my asistants asked me to go with them to the coffee shop to help bring back coffee's and I told them that I had a real important conference call and couldn't do it. This in fact was a lie. I did not want to go. On the way back the asistant lost their footing a little and spilled all of the coffee's pretty much all over theirself. This person really didn't get too hurt, but came back and got laughed at by the entire office and got razzed for months. I don't regret that I didn't help or that I laughed.... My only regret was that I never got my coffee.

Regret ... I have a few

I would say the most regretful thing I've done on the job was to stay working long after I just stopped giving a **** about what I was doing. It made the company look bad, I hated being there and I think my lack of respect for the company kinda rubbed off on a few others who were there. Sometimes you just gotta know when to quit.

Work

You forgot to put up getting in a fight at work. In high school I delivered pizzas. My boss was a dick and always got on my nerves. Once, I confronted him after he made a stupid joke at my expense. OK, so confronting actually means punching him in the face and breaking his nose. No big deal. It was a crappy job, anyway.
