Here’s mine …
A few years ago I was out of town for a business conference with two co-workers, my boss (male) and the president of our company (female). We decided to walk down the street to get something to eat. Before we left the hotel, I complained about not having an extra pair of jeans. I really didn’t want to go out to eat a casual meal dressed in work clothes. The prez of the company said “oh, just wear the jeans you wore on the flight down. That’s what I’m doing.” So I made a quick stop by my room, change into my jeans from the day before and we left.
We all walked on the sidewalk to the restaurant, but the president & I were a fair distance behind everyone else. After eating, the president and my other co-workers decided that they wanted to go down the street to a store. My boss and I headed back to the hotel.
As we casually walked along the sidewalk, we came across a sock. I think to myself “hmmmm … that looks just like the sock that I wore yesterday”. We walked a few feet more and there on the sidewalk is a pair of black thong underwear … MY black thong underwear:eek:. My mind began to race while I’m trying to stay completely calm in the presence of my boss. I was thinking “how the hell did my sock and underwear get on the sidewalk?” and I was completely mortified!
By the time we reached the hotel I’ve figured out that my sock and my underwear were in the leg of my jeans from when I had taken them off the night before – I had just kind of peeled everything off at once and the undergarments managed to stay in the legs of my jeans. And my boss never said “Damn, there’s someone’s thong!” He just kept walking as if it were nothing out of the norm. So although he never knew it was his assistant’s sock and underwear, I was still completely humiliated just the same.
Even worse, one of my co-workers had commented on my socks the evening before – how unusual they were. I knew that if she saw that sock on the sidewalk, she’d know instantly who it and the underwear belonged to. So after making sure my boss was back in his hotel room, I ran down to the street and retrieved my sock and underwear.
All in all, a completely embarrassing experience … what’s yours?
