I was in the office kitchen, loading the dishwasher with dirty dishes. Every week a Kitchen Duty roster is prepared and a team of 7-8 employees are randomly picked to share the responsibility of maintaining the general cleanliness of the office kitchen.
I was too busy looking down, figuring out where to cramp that extra coffee-stained cup. Someone walked by and said Hello. I replied with a cheery Hello and looked up, only to see that the most gorgeous guy in the office had said hello into the phone.
In that flash of a second I wondered if there was enough space in the dishwasher for me jump in and drown. The fridge is big too, I could throw out all the food and freeze inside.
We both laughed out aloud. He was courteous enough to keep the other person on hold, and apologized for not saying Hello to me first … I was too embarrassed and managed to replied only in vowels.
With that I stuffed that extra coffee cup somewhere in the corner and ran to my desk. People wonder why I don’t loiter around the kitchen any more.
Did you suffer any embarrassing incident recently? Please say yes 😛
