"Prepare to put mustard on those words, for you will soon be consuming them along with this slice of humble pie that comes direct from the oven of shame, set at gas mark egg-on-your-face."
- Moss, 'The IT Crowd' (Season 2, Episode 5)
As a perfectionist, I hate mistakes. Discovering mistakes I've made is extremely disturbing, and I appreciate it even less when someone else points out my shortcomings. It's like being hit in the face with a pie. I also dislike showing others mistakes they've made. Doing so, I feel, is like throwing a pie in their face. In my little world, pies should be eaten and mistakes should be avoided. My employer (call them Cubicle Farm Ltd.) apparently does not share this sentiment.
