I like to amuse you

Yesterday, I had a meeting with a senior associate and decided to fill up my water bottle on the way to her office since I'd have to walk in front of the water cooler. I recently bought a tupperware-like container that has a straw that flips up and down. It is about two and half glasses worth, and I love it because it allows me to take more water back to my office with me. Less trips to the cooler=happy lazy halloweenlover.

Anyway, I was sitting in a chair in her office listening to her speak about the current assignments and fiddling with the water bottle. Flip the straw up... flip the straw down. And then, while listening intently, I flipped the straw up? And squeezed. And spewed water all. over. my. lap. All over my pants, and all over my lap so that after 13.2 seconds it soaked through and wet my underwear. And made me look like I'd peed myself.

There was nothing to do but laugh, so as she fumbled through her drawers to get me napkins that is what we did. For the rest of the afternoon and until my pants were dry, I made excuses as to why I couldn't leave my desk, and I wondered why the office had to be so freezing. Maybe if I hadn't been sitting in wet clothing it wouldn't have been as cold, but damnit, we need to be more considerate for the people that pour water all over themselves. Diversity, people, diversity.

You made me laugh, and that's a good thing!

Chatty Cricket said...

whatever- you know you peed your pants.

;)

Suzanne said...

Thanks for the laugh! I find it comforting that other people have experiences like, this, too.

Ha Ha ha!

Jill said...

Funny story! Thanks for the laugh.

I had a similar thing happen to me, except with coffee. I was walking down the hall at work, carrying coffee in a paper cup with one of those plastic lids that you can drink through, and I inadvertently gripped the cup too hard, which made the plastic lid violently pop off. Coffee spewed all over my NEW cream colored skirt. And of course, it happened in the morning, so I had to walk around all day with a skirt that looked like an abstract painting done in coffee. But on the bright side, nobody thought I peed myself.

A ha ha! Too freakin' funny.

"Diversity, people, diversity" Cracked me up.

LOL. I have a travel coffee mug that has a really finicky lid. I can't tell you how many times I have spilled coffee down the front of me, yet I am too cheap to replace it

I soooo have not told all of you how many times I have spilled coffee on myself. I could have an entire blog devoted to what I spill on my clothes, and as Jill mentioned, ALWAYS in the mornings. Josh asks me why I even bother wearing white.

The other day I wore white pants and spilled coffee down the front, splashed balsamic vinager on the crotch, and got mud on the cuffs. Sigh.

Hahahaha. And the best thing is, I swear we have that EXACT water bottle in our kitchen! Wet undies at work...eeeeeew.

Pink Cupcake said...

LOL :) You sound so much like me - I spill everything over me, and usually at the most inappropriate times...

the lawmom said...

You mean you didn't have the "in case of emergency" suit on the back of your door?

Honey Bunny said...

that sounds like something i'd do!

amygeekgrl said...

LOL
Thanks for the laugh, but sorry that you peed yourself. ;) j/k

Running2Ks said...

OMG, I just bought that container too--and I was telling the girls they'd have to give up sippy cups to use that instead. You have just warned me about what may happen :)

KLee said...

Well, I am ususally pretty clumsy, and I spill stuff on me all of the time. It tends to land on the Twins, since my bosom has its own gravitational field.

But, yesterday, I had a child sneeze while holing his chocolate milk, and when he sneezed, he squeezed. Chocolate milk all in the cleavage. It was very cold, and very wet. And in my brand new bra, too. *sigh*
