off topic - embarassing moment.... [#permalink] New post 07 Dec 2007, 16:08
Hey folks,
Had to post this blooper of mine just to ease the somber mood of this Friday (after dings and all)

I was at my cubicle today, and I got my bag which had an open packet of condoms in it... I dont know how the contents got in my backpack... :wink:

So there are these 2 new hires (cute chicks).. who had to work with me today.. They were using my cubicle.. and I had to step out to do some photocopying...

Guess what.. I had moved my backpack to make space for them and ..lo!! a condom fell out.. I did not notice it

The damn thing lay on the floor in full view of the office while I happily went to do my work..

I came back an hour later.. the girls were gone and my co-mate was ROTFL and making signs that my head was gonna get chopped off..

The girls had noticed the "prophylactic device" lying on the floor.. One of them apparently wanted to throw it in the dustbin but they decided not to..

They scampered from my cubicle a short while later... Needless to say they thought I was some perv... (not my usual pimpin moment)

I have to now avoid these two work mates of mine in case they sue me for harrassment.....and one of them was trying to be friendly with me, before this incident happened

This cracked me up. But tell you what, it doesn't surprise me one bit that you did this. After all, you are one of those southern californian Trojans.

River,
you may be right... I have to now write a letter of apology and send it along to the affected personnel. Thats what I am thinking...

But to think about the matter, a condom in the office is not that much of a hue and cry, is it??

I have seen condom vending machines in offices in Paris...

But then again the French are French..

wow, that's a good one avi :)

I would probably explain myself to the two co-workers just to be safe, and apologize for the uncomfortable situation. Personally I don't think it's anything big, but in the US, you never know. Lots of people who could get offended by the sight of a condom.

That right there is classic!

Tip: don't even think to write about this incident in your "ethical dilemma" essays :)

That's hilarious :)

Don't worry about harrassment - it is pretty hard to prove that you've thrown those condoms deliberately to offend any of those girls. You didn't even ask them about what they were going to do in the weekend :wink:

But I am sorry to hear that you've lost the office girl that was trying to be friendly :(

I was gonna say, what the heck does he need to apologize for ??? For a condom falling from you backpack ??? Geez, I guess we are lucky in Paris... :lol:

Anyway, my 2 cents: before sending apologetic mail, etc., did you check ot with the girls ? They may even think it's funny, you live in Califonia after all...

I would verbally talk to them, act extremely embarrassed about it. Don't joke, if you seem more upset about it than they do then chances are they will forgive you. If you are laughing, and saying well sorry I need them cause I am a pimp...well then you may have a lot of explaining to do when they run your background.

LOL Avi .. ur possibly the only person who can run into such situations :)

Well .. guess the best thing would be to just act as though this incident never happened! Maybe the girls have already forgotten about this ... so u would'n want to re-kindle their ... memory!

Let us know how it goes Avi, and good luck!

Would you do that if your toothbrush fell out and lay there on the floor? What century are you guys living in?

On the other hand, it could be a nice way to attract women. The fact that the girls were already even attracted by the latex product speaks of their "attention" you should take in consideration, buddy. Subconsciously they probably put that condom on your (you know what) and incorporated the owner of the product in their erotic fantazies.

Hm... not bad.

Similar story: A friend handed a Mexican cop a condom as we tried to pay them off after a bar altercation. Lets just say the cop wasn't flattered. We did get out of spending the night in jail but I'm sure that cost us extra.
