In my first month of working at my office I got my left heel of my shoe caught in the right shoe and fell over onto the ground…and then I cried (I couldn’t help it the tears just started flowing). In front of my whole office.

Awesome!

One of our reports we sent to customers used to have bright red, yellow, and green colors on it. Last year the product was modified and I was reviewing some final changes when I saw that the colors had been changed from bright red to a light coral, from bright yellow to this hideously ugly mustard yellow/green color, and from bright green to a grayish green.

I called a manager to my desk and our conversation went like this:

Me: “Did you see this new color scheme? I think someone in R&D screwed up. It looks like someone vomited on the report.”

Manager: “No….actually I asked for those colors.”

Hahaha it was so embarrassing!

At one of my previous workplaces, I was walkin’ out of the washroom’s front door and I opened the door onto my face!! And someone was on the other side and tried to control their laugh. Yes, I opened the door to exit and hit my own face! Embarassed

@tranquility: Yeah everyone laughed…including myself. But it was so awkward because I had JUST started working there and none of us new eachother that well!

Plus I like fell into the corner of the room so it was extra pathetic.
