So it turns out today is my Friday. My boss asked me to take the next two days off in case I need to work this weekend, but I won’t know about that until Friday. So I might get a four day weekend, or just have a really weird work schedule.
Kind of weird, but whatever. I’ll take two random days off to be productive. Or to re-watch all four seasons of Mad Men. It could go either way.
So, because of all that, I had to reschedule an appointment to get my car serviced from Saturday to Thursday. A funny story ensued. Cue reenactment:
Me: (looks up car dealership website to find phone number, dials number on phone)
Phone operator: (very loudly) Hi, we have lots of horny girls ready for you to talk to, for—-
Me: (hangs up frantically, looks around the room horrified, meets the stare of many curious coworkers) Ummm, did you guys hear that?
Coworkers: Um, yes.
Me: (laughs awkwardly) Hahaha, clearly I dialed the wrong number! Woopsie…. Um, I’m totally, er, I didn’t, I mean I wouldn’t. (hangs head in shame)
Coworkers: (blank stares… crickets… internal thoughts… turn to computers to check and see if I’m a registered sex offender)
So yeah… that happened.
It takes a lot to embarrass me, but I must say I was pretty mortified. It may take awhile to recover.
I did however, get the car appointment rescheduled afterward. So there’s that.
Not sure if it was worth it though.
What’s the most embarrassing thing that’s ever happened to you at work?
