This is a thread to discuss those times you really got it wrong, stuffed up completely and made an absolute goose of yourself. I’ll kick off with a couple:
I was recently in a ‘cool’ pub in Brunswick and had need of the toilet facilities and thought the hipsters had taken things a bit too far because there was no urinal, just a couple of stalls. Having done what I had to do, I went to wash my hands and it was then that I noticed the sanitary disposal unit on the wall … I’d gone into the Ladies it would appear. Crimson-faced, I quickly slunk out but nobody batted an eyelid nor said a word. They either didn’t notice or didn’t care.
Many years ago, I was sent to a training day by my employer, very much against my wishes and despite my strong indifference to the matter being discussed. I was outside having a last minute smoke before going in and another bloke walked out to do the same. “Were you sent here for this bullshit too mate?” I asked, and he looked up and nodded wordlessly. Back inside, the session begins … and the first speaker was my co-smoker.
