okay, there are actually way more than 6 ways to embarrass yourself at work, but this is one i particularly remember:
i was walking from my desk to the restroom. and i felt a bit of flatulence on the way. now i usually am quite the expert at letting 'em loose discreetly (read: silently), so i decided to take my chances. and let out a clearly audible toot, right behind a colleague's (from another team) desk.
i'm not sure if he turned to see who did it, because i walked as briskly as i could to the restroom.
the hilarity of what had just happened was too much to stifle, and so i burst out laughing while i peed. luckily for me, the restroom was empty, and i had an incredibly satisfying fart while peeing.
until, seconds later, the same guy entered the restroom.
and witnessed me laughing, peeing, and farting. simultaneously, and with gusto.
i did my best to stifle my laughter, while staring at the ceiling to avoid eye contact. i'm sure that made me look even funnier, but there was no way i could anyhow acknowledge his presence in that situation.
i'm sure he still thinks i'm some sort of freak. but that moment was priceless... and totally worth it!
