Today was my first day at Intuit. I did all the usual first day things like spend the day in orientation and have a meeting with my boss. But the day started out horribly. There is nothing like being late to your first day at a new job. I was supposed to meet my boss at 8 before orientation and instead barely got there by 8:30 when orientation started. I just totally misjudged how long it would take. I allowed 45 minutes and it actually took about an hour and 15 minutes. There must have been an accident because traffic was awful. Of course this wasn’t really the end of the world or anything and my boss was very nice about it but I really hate it when I screw up. As I was walking up to the reception area all I could think was don’t let your first words to your new boss on your first day at Intuit be I’m sorry.
I have a meeting tomorrow morning at 8:00 and I’m planning to get there at 7:30!
