The boyfriend sent me this text yesterday:

I was playing basketball outside with the boys and I got the courage to dunk it.  I dunked it right through the hoop... straight on to my face.  

My reply after laughing out loud was:

Did somebody record it on video?!??!?!? 

I think I loved hearing the boyfriend's story because it made me forget about my recent shameful activity at work. SIGH. It was not good. Not good at all. 

We keep the doors locked at work for security purposes.  If one has a key, one can enter and exit at any time.  If one doesn't have a key, one must press the intercom button outside of the gallery, and one of the employees has to release a buzzer via the phone system, and physically get up to open the door and let said person inside the gallery.  

So anyway, the other day my boss left the gallery to go to a doctor appointment.  I was talking with my co-worker when my boss buzzed the intercom system, asking to be let in. Meaning: my boss forgot his key.  AGAIN.  I thought I clicked off the intercom system when I turned to my co-worker and said, "How hard is it to remember to bring your fucking key to work every day?!"  Next thing I knew, my boss was STILL ON THE INTERCOM, and he exclaimed, "JUST OPEN THE DOOR!!!"  

UGHHHHHHHH.  What this means is that THE BOSS HEARD MY RUDE AN INAPPROPRIATE (yet true) COMMENT.  HE HEARD IT. HE KNOWS WHAT I SAID. ABOUT HIM.  BLEHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH.

After this took place, I pretty much had a red face for the rest of the day.  SHAME FACE.  And I kept slapping my forehead at my idiotic behavior.  I'm 43 years old and I still make stupid mistakes. Constantly.

Thankfully my comment wasn't considered grounds for termination.  Hooray!

And I am pleased to report my boss has not forgotten to bring his key to work since this particular incident took place.  :]

Have YOU done anything shameful/idiotic lately?  If so, do tell.
