I Am A Cry Baby

Oh my friends, I have subjected myself to the ultimate humiliation today...I front of a guy...who is the Executive Vice President of the company...that I'm hoping will hire me...because a girl was mean to me. I feel so ridiculous.

Chuk keeps telling me I shouldn't be embarrassed, but how can I not be? I don't even want to go in tomorrow; I will, but I don't want to.

How do I go back there and hold my head up? Have you ever cried at an inappropriate time? How did you deal with it? Please, PLEASE share your stories.

P.S. I have excuses 1) I have my period. 2) I'm majorly sleep deprived.


  1. I was supposed to be a parent rep for a school meeting. Instead, I cried in front of 25 teachers, guidance people, other parents and the superintendent of schools because I was frustrated with my son being pushed aside for 4 years. Don't worry, it happens. Life goes on, and I bet no one will say a word about to tomorrow.

  2. Walking back in with your head held high will speak more about your character, than if you hide in shame! You can do it!!! Everyone has emotions. Learning to walk past those moments and continue to do your job well says a lot!

    I always teared up easily too. (((Hugs)))

  3. I agree with Melissa. Just walk in and try to laugh about yourself. Everyone gets overwhelmed sometimes. I actually cry a lot- it just happens. You are not a bad person or less of a person because you cried. It is ok.

    Good luck!

  4. I agree- walking in and NOT being embarrassed is the way to go. It is OK. Shows you are a human.

  5. I agree with everyone's advice. You have nothing to be ashamed of. You are human and you can still walk with dignity and pride the next day. Other people will admire your courage because we have all felt really stupid and wondered what to do afterwards!

  6. OMG, I feel for you. I once almost burst into tears in front of my boss. I spent all afternoon working really hard on a stupid report he wanted, then he called me into his office to present it two minutes before the end of the day (my husband waiting outside to pick me up). THEN he was really nasty and ripped the report apart, even though it was exactly what he asked for. I kept it together for a few minutes but burst into tears the second I got outside. I couldn't even get it together enough to tell my husband what's wrong. I don't know if this is an excuse, but I was eight weeks pregnant. I was crying so much my husband thought I miscarried.

    Geez. That really hit home. Crying over a stupid report. What's wrong with me?

    Funny now, isn't it :)

    Oh and I'm a big believer in revenge - what goes around comes around ;)


I know word verification is a pain, but I'm getting a lot of spam comments, more than I can keep up with. I hope you'll leave a comment anyway. I really appreciate you reading and love hearing back from you.
