(Sterling, Il )
I work as a teller at a small bank. I just started one month ago and I am still making quite a few mistakes. Silly ones too. My anxiety gets the better of me at times and my brain just shuts off.
I forgot to look at a check to verify an endorsement. He did not endorse the check and I gave him cash. This is a very critical mistake in banking.
My co-worker addressed my error while I was with another customer. He stopped talking to me and addressed my supervisor. He stated he "felt bad" to my supervisor that he had to tell me I made this error while I am right there waiting on another customer. My supervisor consoled him not to worry about discussing my error with me and that I have to learn how to do a better job checking my work.
How do I handle this situation without being right. I feel my supervisor isn't in the business of consoling my co worker about telling me of my error. It isn't about him. I don't feel my supervisor needs to be discussing my error with a co worker. I find that I made a mistake and I need to be addressed for what I did by my supervisor in private.
Any thoughts. I know I was wrong in my mistake however, I don't think this was a mature way to handle it from my co worker and supervisor. Do I address it or leave it?
