Booted

I was removed from a project last week. Apparently the client had different expectations about my skill level than was the case so they asked to have me replaced.

Of course I was/am upset about this, although I hated the project. It’s the fact that I was not good enough for someone, even though I tried my best to be what they wanted — it was not enough.

The project manager of the project and his supervisor (as well as my supervisor) made sure to let me know that it was not my performance that was in question, so there’s that, but it is still painful to think about.

My self-esteem has plummeted and I second-guess my expertise even more than I did before.

I don’t know how I am going to cope with another two and a half years of this.

I need a new nickname (to hide from clients)

I tried to find a new name by anagraming my full name. I don’t think any of these work:

Lacerated Pinko
Pancaked Loiter
Pancaked Toiler
Anecdotal Piker

My given and surname give me this:

Antacid Pork

If I had to choose from these I’d either be Caption Dork or Cleopatra Inked
