waitinginvain? Posted August 1, 2012 Share Posted August 1, 2012 (edited) I've been emailing the professor for whom I'll be a TA. And in every email I've managed to come across as an idiot! In the first one he asked for my ASURite ID, and I gave him the number on my ID card instead of my assigned name. I emailed him next, asking if he could tell me what my responsibilities as hisTA will be. He reminded me that he sent all of his futureTAs an email that said we will set up a meeting to discuss the details. (In my defense, I had hoped he would have given me a clue before the meeting! But I didn't say that.) So, when responding to his email, I added that I finally found out my office location. I also gave him my office hours--which it turns out are the same time as class! Why didn't I check??? I emailed him an apology for coming across as an idiot. I said I'm not sure who I'm supposed to talk to about anything. Needless to say, I am so embarrassed! I wouldn't blame him if he had no confidence in me at all. Has anyone else had a similar experience? Is there any way to salvage my image? Thanks. Edited August 1, 2012 by waitinginvain?
