I tripped in front of all of my colleagues (and their reactions were priceless)
I was in a pretty important virtual meeting and the conversations were getting pretty heated. During the middle of the meeting, I got up to grab some food. On my way back to my desk, I tripped over my own foot ... in front of my colleagues. Salsa and a white shirt was part of the messiness equation –– so my clothes were not saved. Everyone saw this and was dead silent until someone said, “Hey! You saved most of your food!” -- The rest of the meeting consisted of laughing and embarrassing moments we’ve all had recently. I think it really helped remind us of the human side we all have in this virtual world -- which was a breath of fresh air in a way. Hey… sometimes, you just gotta take one for the team.
Have you ever done anything in front of your colleagues you wish you could’ve erased? Or done something that actually made light of the situation, like I did?
