I don't know how I do it, but I seem to have this ability to turn a small dilemma into a massive drama!! I have been paid today but I was underpaid by a substantial amount, but instead of ringing HR or HMRC I sat and cried about it for a few hours. The problem suddenly went from being underpaid, to not being able to go out or eat, and then I worried about Xmas presents, then I worried about my mortgage and then I worried that I wouldn't be able to buy a flat next year if they kept me on the same taxt code. All of my worries turned out to be mostly pointless. I rang HMRC who 'made an error' and the problem will be rectified for next month. This is a massive relief but those few hours where I sat and cried for 3 hours seemed like the end of the world.
I need to find a way to be calm in these situations! I hate crying at work and it has happened far too often in the last few weeks.
