It's never easy on your first day at work. There's just too much information you have to know. Although it wasn't my first day in the place but I used to work in the other section and now it's entirely different. I used to just stuff envelopes, now I got to prepare letters. I thought it was going to be an easy thing--yea for sure the use of computer and software is pretty easy but the information contained in the documents are pretty complicated. My work now involves decision-making which is really not a big deal, or so I thought. So why did I make a mistake? Because I trusted too much. I yelled at myself for not following my intuition. Good thing I had not done many letters. And as we found out it wasn't all my fault because someone else put the envelopes in the wrong tray and section.

Well, I could have avoided the mistake if I were not dumb. Just because someone handed you a ten quid and said it was 5 doesn't mean you have to trust him/her, innit? You have to at least take a quick look and examination to make sure that information and reality match.

I always dread first day. Anyway, it seems the normal learning process for me always involve making a mistake. And most of the time I learn them during my first day.
