Embarrassing office gaffes

“Wooden Heart” by the Features is a great song. It’s the kind that gets your head rocking back and forth and both heels banging the floor in unison with every downbeat. It’s the one that makes you want to sing along no matter where you are or what you’re doing. Like I unknowingly did a few weeks ago at my desk, in an open room full of the quietest co-workers this side of Grande Chartreuse.

“So I took my axe and walked around…until I knew that I had found…the perfect piece of pine” is part of what my lucky co-workers were treated to before I noticed the looks on their faces. I blame my headphones; they go up to 11.

It was a little embarrassing, actually, since I made it through several verses before I realized what I was doing. I’m not the karaoking type either, and then there’s the whole disrupting other people’s work thing which companies tend to frown upon these days.

Let’s hear your story. What’s the most embarrassing thing you’ve done or seen someone else do at work?

Second! Most embarassing gaffe at work? Eating someone else’s sandwich from the frig at work. Oops.

Carthusian monks and Spinal Tap in a three paragraph blog post? This is better than Dennis Miller!

I hope you never hear “Hollywood Nights” while driving…
