An embarrassing moment

I hope you had a wonderful weekend and someone spoiled you rotten. I was just having a good chuckle. It seems that there are other folks out there that also have some awkward moments when they embarrass themselves without even trying. lol I was reading this specific incident and could just sympathize with this poor man.

"First day at my new job, first one in an office having worked retail previously. I'm told to report to the meeting room at the end of the hall on the top floor for my induction. I get to the end of the hall and see two double doors with a Boardroom plaque, throw them open to see 7 or 8 suits chatting away. I find an empty chair, sit down and adjust my new company branded notepad and pen on the table. The whole room goes silent all looking at me, until eventually, the guy at the projector timidly says

"Um...can we help you?"

"Is this the induction room?"

"No, this is the quarterly review meeting for the board of Directors, you want the room next door"

I hung my head for a few seconds before getting up and simply saying

"Carry on fellas"

With quick thinking he did not loose too much face. If you have an experience you would like to share with us, we would love to hear about it. Please email me at annemarie@astitchahalf.com

Happy Stitching

Yet when I think about it, there had to be a lot more than just the food to make family meals part of my food memories.
