Describe your most embarrassing office experience.

My wife's bra stuck to the back of my wool sweater and I didn't notice until my coworker quietly told me.


Tore what I thought was a small whole in the rear of my pants at lunch. The entire office, however, let me know upon return that the tear was actually the size of my entire ass cheek. I had to crudely sew it back together, and walk very gingerly for the rest of the day.

 

Complaining about my new boss, really...really complaining about my new boss. The entire time he was walking behind me. He actually called me into his office later that day, and instead of screaming at me, asked me some very insightful questions. That was the moment I started kind of liking him.

 

I couldn't decide if a pair of pants was right for me. Before cutting off the tags, I decided to have my office bestie gals check them out. After all, I was wearing a dress. I could pop them on under the dress when everyone was gone and badda bing-the vote would be cast.  What I didn't expect was that the four males in our office (that were out at the time of the pants viewing) would return at the exact moment I decided to take OFF the pants (the pants were voted 'in' by the way).  Imagine me with my pants half way down-and struggling to get to my chair so I could casually pull them the rest of the way off under my desk!  All the while I was chatting away with co workers like nothing was happening. They were all laughing so hard. The male co workers never knew that I was performing a strip tease right then and there.

 

Just as a joke, I entered sweepstakes: "free Valentine chocolate for your lonely boss." I didn't have any special feeling to my boss, so this is totally joke and I've never expected winning, but I won! They brought a huge box filled with all kinds of chocolate (approx. 30 boxes of chocolate) to my office with TV camera without any notice! The security guard stopped the TV crew and the director of my division got angry for the mess I caused, but only my "lonely" boss was very happy.
