It turns out today was the day for my appraisal. The timing could not have been worse, as everyone wanted everything urgently. Still, I managed make it to my manager’s office.
I always dread anything where I have to communicate with a manager, regardless of whether it’s good or bad, and the words “Can we have a chat?” strike terror in my soul. It all stems from something in primary school, but I don’t know what. I just remember being terrified whenever a teacher or anyone in authority, spoke to me.
Today, though, I really needn’t have worried. The three people who appraised me offered glowing testimonies and, I have to say it: “It was the best appraisal I’ve ever had“. I have never felt so appreciated in my workplace before. I do cherish my current place of employment, and I hope to be here until I retire, or move, because I know there is no better place to work in this industry than at this firm.
So, overall a good day. Here’s hoping for the same again next year
