So bare with me…I think I said something stupid at work but don’t know if its worse in my head or it is this bad in realty.
So I just started my new job that I really really like. In this new job I do alot of General Ledger postings.
So my supervisor is a really nice, really cheery guy and when he trained us I wrote down everything he said. I then went to do my first special entry that had a trick to it and entered is like “1234” and asked him to double check it. He took a look and said its good just remember its “1324”. So I struck out my note and put this new info down and continued doing all similar entries this way.
So today I realize that he mispoke and the correct way to enter it was “1234” afterall, and he just mispoke in his correction to me. So because I had entered this info incorrectly I had to go into his office and tell him.
I started from the top asking him to recall when he verified how I was entering info and I told him “when you were looking at the screen you said ‘its good, just remember its 1324′” and then I scrated out my original notes (I showed him my notebook) and that I am sorry I misunderstood and here are the errors to be fixes and gave him a list and told him I already fixed the ones I could.
I just feel like an ass for telling my new supervisor I made a mistake because he mis-spoke. Is this as bad as I think?
Thank you for anyone who responds to this!
