After the drama of last week, I could definitely use a laugh or two, so I'm going to continue with Totally Awkward Tuesdays as planned. I'll update you all on my friend at some point...
Today's story is really more of an "almost totally awkward" moment, but it could've been really, really awkward, so I'm going to share it. It actually happened just this past Friday.
At our office, Fridays are casual day, so when I got dressed last week, I put on a pair of jeans that were hanging in my closet. I'd been wearing them for a while before this incident took place - I took out the garbage in them, drove to work in them, walked across the parking lot in them, and went up a flight of stairs in them. After I'd been in the jeans for about two hours, I got up from my desk to go to the bathroom. As I was walking down the hall, I felt something brush against my ankle. I looked down, but there was nothing there, so I walked a few more steps, then turned around again.
There, in the middle of the office, was a pair of my underwear. A black lace thong, to be exact.
Apparently, the thong had been inside of my pant leg before I put my jeans on and had slowly worked its way down before falling onto the floor. I ran back, scooped it up, shoved the offending thong into my pocket, and then sprinted to the bathroom where I stood for a few minutes and contemplated the humiliation I would've faced if I hadn't turned around and noticed that my underwear was in the middle of the floor. Everyone would've immediately known they were mine, since I'm the only woman of my size in the office, and they had fallen out a mere three feet from the door of the office of one of our male senior staff members. If he'd found them, I probably would've just gone ahead and quit my job.
Lucky for me, this was only an almost awkward moment. If anyone other than me had found my underwear, I probably would have been too traumatized to share this story with you all for at least another week or two.
It's your turn! Share your awkward moment and give us all a good laugh.
