    I'm new to the Off Topic section of EUROGAMER.NET, where is the appropriate topic to post my rants, happy moments...etc? Pretty much any thing unrelated to games i wanna share with you.

    I find the community here quite amusing, and i'm willing to integrate with you folks:3

    I went to a meeting with my shirt unbuttoned in the middle and my bulbous stomach and chest hanging out.

    All of the above its 100% true.

    Right.

    Give yourself £5 or ½ gig, you're worth it.

    wile working in the spar I tested a £20 note with a black marker instead of the clear dud note tester pen, and told the customer it was a fake.

    If you're still at work ED209, what you did there with that post would make a bloody good entry for this thread.

    Not exactly embarrassing but of note: I took a hash cake into work a few years back and proceeded to hand it out around the office, including to my boss (who was at the time a Lt Col in the TA and a Tory councillor).

    Needless to say the effect it had on people was amazing! Most of the older secretaries thought they were having hot flushes and one of the solicitors spent a long time just staring at a piece of paper.

    And none of them cannot claim to have not inhaled, they bloody ingested the stuff by the ton!
    That reminds me, I was thinking about making some brownies for the expo.

    I attempted to startle my colleague as he was about to enter our office. I ran quietly & jumped towards him. Lo & behold he opened the door on the exact timing I was about to startle him & he hit my leg bad...VERY BAD -_-

    A slightly embarrassing story happened a few years ago, working in a small office with about 10 people (which incidentally I'm still at). I only lived a couple of miles from the office so I would always be the last one in as I didn't have to travel too far.

    Anyway, one morning I walked in the office and found everyone was standing in the center of the whole office around the central desks, where I sat with 3 others laughing and joking. I thought it was a bit strange as everybody is usually working in their individual side offices.

    Put my coat up on the hook, started laughing and joking with everyone as I made my way over to my desk, sat down and switched the computer on. As soon as the login screen appeared, I reached up for the mouse and let out the biggest girly scream as adult male can produce.

    The bastards had left a dead mouse on my mouse. Our office had a warehouse attached and the mice were getting under the warehouse doors and into our office, munching on the girls snacks in their desks.

    After the scream and some choice expletives, I refused to work until someone went out and bought me a new mouse. Even today, I still get reminded of it every few months. Bastards.

    Loads erm

    Once I had a bad stomach illness and went to the toilet and just wrecked the joint. I mean I dropped a bomb in there. I waited in the cubicle until the coast was clear due the the cringe factor but as soon as I opened the door the managing director walked in who was visiting from America. As soon as he looked at me I could see it in his face he knew what I'd done.

    I also dressed up as little red riding hood for the day for a charity event.

    And one time I worked with a boss who was a bit of a dick so I went to the toilet, got a chewing gum out of a pack, rolled my foreskin back and rested the chuddy on my helmet then rolled it back up and went to work for an hour (it was quite a sweaty job I had then too) after an hour I removed the chewy and popped back in the top of the pack and offered him one. He lapped it up. Cheese flavoured chewing gum!

    I think you might need to see a psychiatrist.

    Current job. Went to the loo, which usually means you walk in, lock the door and then sit down and do your thing.
    Half a year ago I walk into the cubicle and I was distracted, I think I noticed there wasn't any paper left but then saw there was more on teh cistern and put that in. With the routine thus broken, I dropped my pants, sat down. Looked at the door and thought "Wait ... did I lock that then?".
    Rather than just checking it, I looked at the lock and thought "Yeah it's upright, that's locked".
    2 minutes I hear someone walks in, my door swings open, my boss looks rather startled as I reach out to pull it close again and stammers "lock the bloody door!" before closing it.
    *sigh*

    I like the fact that the first two things are fairly innocuous followed by something that Fred West would probably have called "a bit off colour".

    BAAANG!!!!! EXPLOTION!!!!!

    At least he's hiding behind an anonymous internet nick, and not using his real name.

    One of the most embarrassing things to happen was one of my colleagues (who had a penchant for shouting out my name randomly for amusement value) hid under my desk and then shouted my name and made me jump.

    It's on YouTube...

    Since when did builders have desks?

    They're forced to build their own desks out of bricks on day one, then they can sit behind them at lunchtime and pretend they paid attention at school.

    BAAANG!!!!! EXPLOTION!!!!!

    That's a bit harsh. I know plenty of builders that are earning much more than you.
