In honor of today’s Totally Awkward Tuesday post, I give you… my humiliation!
I have a habit of sticking my rather tiny foot into my mouth (it fits perfectly). I’ve developed quite a habit of using text lingo in real life. As if this isn’t annoying on it’s own, what this text lingo signifies are things I don’t actually say. Like LOL. Who actually says “Laugh out loud?” No one. Right? Right.
Well I was in a meeting with my supervisor, another supervisor, and my manager and I was expressing my dissatisfaction with the way a particular situation was playing out. They were intrigued at my argument. I was really helping my cause.
Until… I let out a “WTF.” Yep. I said it. WTF. Very rarely would I ever actually say what WTF stands for, and definitely not in the presence of this particular company. So, naturally, I was mortified. Did I really just let out a WTF? Really… I couldn’t have, right? Wrong. Oh, sooo wrong.
Face = bright red. Me = stumbling to recover. They seemed to blow it off, but I’m pretty sure my argument was then thrown out the window.
Oh well. I still have a job and that’s enough to be thankful for!
