This past Tuesday I received my annual evaluation (my first) at the library where I work part-time. The categories were as follows: E=Excellent, A=Above Average, S=Satisfactory, D=Decreased Performance, and U=Unsatisfactory. While I received several A’s, I did receive a few S’s and no E’s.
I should happy with that, right? After all, I didn’t receive any D’s or U’s. However, all I could keep thinking during, and after, the moment I was presented with my “grades” by the library director was “What did I do wrong?.” Has something like this ever happened to you when you received a passing grade, but still wondered if you were failing somehow? Or am I just a perfectionist? 🙂
