    Aw man... I jsut had my most embarrasing moment todqay at my current job. I was asked to cover reception, never done it before but I was happy to cover for 30 minutes. I get bored and start playing with these little black plastic boxes in a charger by the switchboard. "Oh, cool looking walkie talkies" I mistakenly think... A button on it says "ARM", I wonder what that does... ;_; *click*

    A red light begins to flash... A high pitched very loud whine begins...

    Ear piercing alarms resound around the entire building. Managers from all departments come running out, the phone rings "This is Wimbledon Police station, a personel attack alarm has been activated do you require assistence?" or somesuch. Me, ;_;.

    All my work collegues were (still are) in fits of laughter, the managers were /not/ and asked me not to cover reception again. \o/ So some good did come of it...

    Fucks sake...

    Would've been better if it involved broom handles.

    I sent an email to the site where at the end I wrote "Sorry for the inconvenience".

    But I misspelled "inconvenience" and spell check kindly changed it to "incontinence".

    Calling the boss 'Ma' during a meeting with gov depts (brings back memories of school-day follies that one).

    Trying to sort out an out of office reply for a colleague (ages ago) and instead sending out thousands of messages to everyone that had ever emailed me that I was a good girl and deserved a holiday and they didn't.

    My manager at my last job did the exact same thing in an email to a customer.

    I'll never get my Orc looking the same again.

    Could you not have said it fell out of someone's handbag? Or was it still warm and steaming?

    Stickman's anecdote has left me in absolute tears. It's lucky everyone is out to lunch at the moment. I'd shake his hand, but you know, it's in work hours.

    Youthist, just because your life is mundane and bereft of anything approaching amusing incident, doesn't mean that everyone else's is too. It's not like anyone's saying they crashed a secret government project near Roswell or anything.

    This really funny thing happened to me at work the other day. I was on my way into the office (the retina scan at the front entrance was on the blink... again), and I met Barney the guard and he told me...

    Not necessarily embarrassing, but could be damaging to my career. I forgot to save an important piece of work that was done for us. Now my email system has deleted it (anything over a year old is binned). Whoops. Here's why I plead ignorance should it be needed.

    A few years back I was playing email tennis with a friend, sending each other musician jokes. I accidentally emailed some jokes about bass players to the company directors/general big cheeses email list.

    Tried to recall it but it was mostly too late.

    Hurrah! Contractors to the rescue, they still had a copy! Bacon saved at the last minute. Better get filing 6k mails

    In terms of embarrassing moments, as I've said before, I sent a ranty email to my mates about my boss, calling him a cunt. To my boss. That was an uncomfortable night. Managed to get in work early and as he logged on, told him I'd sent a personal email to him by mistake and could I delete it. He fell for it.

    You never, ever press a button on a bit of electronics that says "ARM".

    Yonks ago when I first started work, we were using an archaic Vax based email system. With this you just had a list of mail, hit 'r' to reply and typed your reply. Unfortunately you didn't get to see the content of the email you were replying to.

    It was a Friday afternoon and I'd been emailing my bro. I replied with something along the lines of 'I'm just gonna doss around and do fuck all for the next 4 hours until I can get out of this shithole'. Hit the command to send.

    2 minutes later I had a reply from my boss saying 'I think you sent this to the wrong person - enjoy your weekend!'. Doh! She was really good about it, bless her.

    More recently, on Tuesday, I split my gym shorts whilst doing squats in Boxercise at the gym at lunchtime! Fortunately I had mesh liner and pants so just carried on regardless!

    I got spotted by a fellow member of staff playing with my boss's tits. It was needless to say incredibly fucking embarrassing.

    Yeah she initiated it. I got head off her locked in the toilets quite a few times too. And sex in them once. Good times.

    Although it turns out that people had actually heard us on several occasions...

    Oops. The tits was on a flight of stairs next to a door stupidly enough, but she was older and kinda leading me so I just went along with it.
