So angry with myself. How do I get out of this? I run my own daycare of a morning and on 3 afternoons I do an after
school club. I don't run this and only do it to make up hours as I only get about 17 hours in the daycare. However, most of my co workers are between 17-19 with the exception of one who is in his seventies and me who is 25. There are a few workers who come in occassionally who are my age but I am one of the oldest regular workers.
Because I look young and because many people in my department aren't qualified, some of my new co workers have mistaken me for being their age. One of them asked me today if I was at college and I was embarrassed and said I hadn't and already had a qualification. He then asked if I wanted to go to university and I lied and said *No.* Although I have a degree already. I was so ashamed about lying but I kind of felt he would judge me for being in a job below my qualifications and didn't want to explain myself. Also my real age would then come out so that would be two lots of amazements to him.
I feel so ashamed and embarrassed. I know this will all come out s
