I'm loosing my bottoms! Lol there was a group of us men and women mostly 70 or 80 years old.... a couple a bit older then me.... when suddenly this very cute little old 80 year olds eys get big and she brightened up and squeeled....weeeeee I should go under and peeeeeek.....
lol...lol..She rarely speaks but she was so excited and I wasa shocked then started laughing as the whole group of us roared and she sat there floating on her bar bells giggling like a young school girl... .My side hurt from laughing so
hard  the men were holloring whats happening in there and she just blurts it out again....Lol...I must have been firengine red! Still it was so funny she usually just floats and tries to exercise but says lots ..I'm just hanging here in the water... I'm just floating...

A few months ago I replied to an email that was copied to me from a colleague in sales. It was a request for a huge amount of (unnecessary) detail that he was asked to provide by one of an important customer's engineers. He copied it to me, the customer's senior management and quite a large circulation inside both our companies. Being very busy at the time, and knowing which individual originated the request, I commented on the pedantry of this particular person and how this was typical of this man to ask for all this unnecessary work. I suggested that we try to put him off although, knowing the importance of the business, I expect I would end up having to do it etc. etc.

I then hit "Reply to All" instead of "Reply". Cringe.

I tried to recall it to no avail. The customer's management were quite nice about when I sent the apology (they may even have agreed with my rant) but I don't know whether they ever showed the email to the guy himself. I was so embarrassed. I decided to never, ever commit personal comments to an email in future. I have not had any contact with this particular man since but I expect I will sometime. I got down to work and sent answers to all his questions though.

I've done that 'reply' to the wrong person thing! Highly embarrasing.

Anyway, there's the time I was running for the train and my skirt fell down! I carried on running while kind of holding onto it, and fortunately the guard waited til I'd got on before blowing his whistle!  [:I]

I gave that skirt to the charity shop.

I went to a friends house and found a big turd in the loo that wouldn't flush down. I didn't want them to think it was me so I whispered to my friend that one of the other guests had left an unflushable poo in the loo. I suddenly realised that this only made me look more guilty. She gave me a loo brush and asked me to sort it out. The more I said that it wasn't mine, the more I blushed making me look more guilty. Next time I'll say nothing!

I just came very very close to accidently telling a work colleague that I loved him by text message.  [:I]

I pressed reply to send my husband a message, forgetting the last person I'd messaged was my colleague. I typed the message, then paused thinking that I hadn't put Love you and multiple kisses on it like I normally do, then thought Oh well, and pressed send anyway. Thank god!
