Most Embarrassing Afternoon Ever

I’m pretty sure I’m still blushing, even two hours after “the sex incident.”

This is NOT a good day...

A little background: we use Skype at my office, both for instant messaging and for international calls with our team-members around the world.  And because of my job function (PR princess), I’m always signed-in to Skype.

Well, today I was in a meeting with one of our male VPs.  Alone.  In his office.

We were both looking at a document on my computer screen when a pop-up notified me that I had an incoming call from someone named…

“Sex.”

Mortified, I quickly clicked ignore, and sheepishly glanced at said more-powerful-than-me-colleague.  We made eye contact and endured a moment of very awkward silence before he said:

“Don’t let me interrupt your plans!”

“No, I… it’s not… I don’t…,” I stuttered.  “I really have NO idea who that is!”

After another awkward pause (that I’m pretty sure was the equivalent of one hour, not the ten seconds the clock said), he laughed genially and we got back to business.  Real business.  I mean looking at the document!  ARGH!  You know what I mean!!

Flustered,
Sarah

  1. I suppose another option in the future might be that you could quickly say, “hmmm, I thought I paid my Sax bill already.”

    • Oh darn – smart thinking, Mo. I’m not as quick on my feet as you are 😦
      BAH!

  2. It’s easy to be “quick on your feet” when you’re sittin’ in a chair after the fact..

    • I guess that makes you quick in your chair…?

  3. Yikes! For the first time in history, RWFOTB has absolutely no advice!

    • D’oh!
      Well, at least it’s turning into a funny joke with my more humor-adept colleagues 😉

  4. I can beat that!
