I just needed to sound off and share what I'm going through. I got fired Friday from my new job for making four data entry mistakes (in four weeks). There was no "This is where we need you to improve" or anything like that. There was only - "You're not perfect and we need perfect." I was shocked and saddened at loosing the job - it was the best pay I've had in over 10 years and I was thrilled. I was also doing the best I possibly could - who hasn't made typos? I am almost 65 and it's not so easy to get a job any more. I had this one because someone I know got my foot in the door. I'm so depressed now that I'm finding it hard to even get dressed. I feel so defective! And I feel like my best isn't good enough. Arguh!
