Embarassing Moment

Thursday, July 2, 2009
I had an embarrassing moment today at work that I thought you all would get a kick out of too. Well first let me tell you that I answer the phones and am probably the one that uses the phone the most too. To use our phones you have to dial 9 and then the number. I really hate that and this is why...

I picked up the phone to call my mom on her cell which is a 9-5-1 number. So I dialed 9 and then went to hit 9-1-5 but actually hit 9-1-1. Oops! So I hung up really quickly and then waited a minute. Normally if you hang up they call right back to make sure everything is ok and this way I could tell them it was an accident. So I waited a minute and nothing happened so I went ahead and called my mom again and got it right this time. I talked to her for a minute or so and we hung up. I turned to my computer and got on

I noticed someone pulled up but I couldn't tell who it was because the way my desk sits. So I am sitting there and a chunky nice police officer walked in. Right behind him followed a sexy looking bald officer. FYI: It still hadnt hit me why they were there.

Me: "Good Morning, what can I help you with?"

chunky Nice Officer: "Mam, Did someone call 911?"

Me: "Oh shit!" Oh no, that was me, I thought I hung up in time. I am so sorry!"

Sexy Bald Officer: Dont worry Mam, that happens all the time...what number were you dialing?

Me: "Again, I am so sorry {as I winked at the hot sexy bald officer}. It was a 9-1-5 number. I thought that when I hung up so quickly it wouldnt go through and if it did the Police Dept would call back to confirm an emergency."

We talked for a few more minutes and they left. They didnt seem to be too upset about the mistake. But ultimately I was so embarrassed about it...not to mention there were 3 other people in my office that was there when all of this went down.

So what have you done lately that embarrassed the crap out of you?



I can't think of anything embarrassing, or at least anything I'll admit!

How funny!


Lmbo. My (step)dad works as a dispatcher at our county 911 office, and when my sister was about 5 she picked up the phone, dialed 9-1-1, and ask to speak with her daddy. No joke.
