Totally Awkward Workplace Tuesday

My Totally Awkward today, happened just last week. In the office.

I sit at the bottom of the office stairs, and often the business men mill around my desk and have impromptu meetings. So there I am, checking facebook sneakily as our President, Benefactor and Executive Director discuss acquisitions and other businessy stuff I don't understand.

On the middle landing of the stairs stood the ladies from Marketing, chatting aimlessly, and at the top one of the IT guys (thank God he isn't hot).

So I'm on my way up the stairs to deliver a letter to finance, when my new shoe catches on the stair, and I go sprawling, up, the stairs. Praise the god of wardrobe, I was wearing pants. But my pride was distinctly ruined for the rest of the day.

No one laughed, they all just rushed to my side and offered help. I would have much preferred the men to have belly laughed and the ladies to have giggled, so I could laugh at my clutsy-ness and escape to hiding behind the desk.

President still walks past everyday and asks how my knees are doing. Their bruised thank you very much.

i have a coworker who always falls of thist step right in front of my desk. she always gets hurt-

Morgan the Muse said...

Oh, ouch. I think I would agree, being ignored in that situation would be better.

Snarky A. said...

Oh no!
I so glad you weren't wearing a skirt!
I hope the knees feel better soon!

Hi how are you? I was looking through your blog and found it interesting and wanted to leave you a comment.

I have an invitation for you to come and visit my art blog here in San Diego Southern California. I started this blog in an attempt at finding a creative way to find new friends, and explore my artistic skills through bloging.

I have since found many new friends from an international audience. I hope you will stop by and enjoy the various labels and music videos I design for my art blog. See you soon :)
