Self Promotion

Yesterday I was sitting at my desk when one of my new coworkers came into my cube for some help with a project he was working on.  We started talking about options for his write up when, randomly, my earring catapulted off my ear.

My hand instinctively reached up to try and catch it.  But I missed.

Out of the HUNDREDS of places it could have landed ... floor, desk, trash, drawer, lap, need I go on?

One guess where it went.



I quickly assessed my options:

A) Go fishing.
B) Pretend it never happened.

I chose B.

New coworker either didn't notice or was too much of a gentleman to say anything.  After a few minutes he left.  And I got to 2nd base with myself.

And then promptly offered me a promotion.

Of course you handled that with style...I wouln't have expected anything else from you.

I want to give myself a promotion and raise.

Hell, you'd be president if it went down your pants!!

Predo said...

Too bad it didn't go down his shirt! I bet he wouldn't complain if you went to second base!

Aside from that, are your ear rings related to Mexican Jumping Beans?

OMG that totally happened to me...and Predo was the one at my desk! It was his first day. Looking back now I should have just said, "OMG dude did you see my earring take a nosedive for my cleavage? It'll take me hours to mine for that thing!"
