I had an internship this summer and for the first half of the summer I kind of blew it. I was constantly late and overall just a bad employee. I would have fired me and plenty of other people in HR would have fired me too. My supervisor and their boss however gave me a second chance and I, at least in my perspective, turned it around and actually produced some quality work. I know my supervisor is pleased with my work as they said so and in a final presentation last week it seemed that my supervisor's boss is pleased with me too.
My supervisor really went out on a limb for me and I wanted to thank them in person, but unfortunately I'll have to do it by email. I was planning on asking them for recommendations in the future, which I don't think they would be very opposed to.
Obviously I could be very wrong about how they've percieved me since they gave me a second chance, but I think they would have just fired me if I was doing a poor job. How do I thank my supervisor and their boss for giving me a second chance and not firing me when I probably should have been fired?
