A true story. Been working on a major deal and finally thought we got some headspace after multiple all-nighters. "Take tonight off, guys", partner says to team on a Wednesday.

It’s a partner in the London office on the case saying client needs some non-trivial input "preferrably by lunchtime GMT" 🙄🙄🙄

Why do we choose to work in a profession where a missing punctuation mark feels like the end of the world? A partner gave me 8 minutes to edit a document and I forgot one bracket and I can’t stop thinking about it. I also told her it was missing so that she could fix it but she had already sent it to the client by that point, so now she also knows I screwed up. Is this as big of a deal as it feels?
