Posted:right. I was just in my bosses office (who is thankfully away), when i squated down to pick up a box -you know the correct way that doesnt strain your back, and the bum seam of my business trousers rather amusingly split from belt at the back right around to the bottom of my fly.



I have made it back to my desk without encountering anyone and have my bottom on my seat, but now have a key decision to make (other than where to go shopping tomorrow).



- Do i simply wait till everyone has left the office?

- Do i make a strategic dash down the stairs to the exit door, and across the car park to my car ubbrollsmile

- Proudly display my efforts to my colleagues, boosting employee moral and the expense of my own personal pride. redface

- Pretend it never happened, continue business as always, and see how long before someone says something ubblol



what do you reckon?

Posted:Hmmm, do you have a bag that you carry to work? Can you artfully drape it over your shoulders so that it hides your bum? If not, then I'd take a little from option one, and a little from option 2.

*stifles laughter*

biggrin

Posted:Get some tape, then wait until no-one's looking before dashing off to the toilets - jump into a stall and you can tape the sides of the tear together. Hopefully it'll last long enough for you to get home.

Or.. take a marker pen to the toilet and colour in your underpants the same colour as your trousers - hopefully then no-one will notice the rip.

biggrin


But there's no sense crying over every mistake. You just keep on trying till you run out of cake.

Posted:i would wait untill everyone has left the office,

1) no one will see the rip
2) you will look good to your boss staying late
3) it will save you embarrasment

Thats why jumpers are good , to hide funny stains that you have sat in and ripped pants.

Hope you wore your nicest Y fronts

Posted:well.... i ended up having to finish heaps of stuff off so stayed late.
I made a dash at about 6pm downstairs to the fridge to steal a beer and didnt get caught - the risk was worth it!

by the time id finished for the day almost everyone had gone home anyway, but i strategically use Flash's suggest of covering my arse with my bag when I encountered the head accountant on the stair well.

hooray! ubbrollsmile

It was a day for screaming at inanimate objects.
