I asked a really dumb question in my interview.
work. and i havent even left the house yet.
Have booked two more night time social things I am attending only due to work. Mrs. Piob is a real camper about coming to these things with me. We both them.
Not for the faint of heart.
Spoiler: Warning: Spoiler!
I have a friend who is nosy as fuck. I ignore his nosy questions with silence.

touching up my resume is proving to be a lot harder than i expected. im not enjoying this. one temper tantrum already and im less then an hour in.

What can be done?
physical therapy, no squatting, i dunno. dr. said mine is bad enough for long term disability but i am more worried about what it will be like in 10 years
I used to see that same diagnosis all the time when I was doing PI work. Usually in older guys who were manual workers or the like. Pretty rough, man.
Sorry to hear that, it sounds like yoga is in your future.
If my manager points out some formatting errors on my slides through email, do I just respond by thanking her for her feedback and affirming that I won't miss them again? Do I just not respond to the email? Or do I try to justify/defend some of the 'errors.'
The first one would be best. Definitely not the last.
God I feel like such an idiot because I spent a good hour or two double, triple checking the entire deck for errors and I still missed two minor ones. I felt so confident and said it was 95% (really thought 100%, but, under-promise, ya know?) done when I emailed my manager, and then she replies back with the formatting issues.
I can't tell if this is one of those "you should have found those errors" situations, or if it's an example of on-the-job training/learning things as you go. Either way, I should have just said it was 75% done to play it safe.
Why give it to her if you thought it was 95% done? I work on tight deadlines with politicos and give my bosses imperfect work often but we talk through them so corrections are part of the game. You can explain why things turned out they did but you definitely don't argue (defend if it's appropriate but know when to back off). When you get "redline edits" you accept them, fix them and move on. Definitely work to learn from them and if you can prevent them from happening again, do it. You really aren't in a position to argue - you can explain why things are the way you presented them but ultimately you accept their edits/corrections.
I don't know what you gain by submitting work 75% done vs 95% done unless they know you can't get them just right by deadline and can take that into consideration.
Separate names with a comma.
