can you please follow me

Ok, here’s a rather embarrassing work story. I was just getting back to my desk today at around 5:30pm when one of my co-workers introduced me to a lady who he would like me to quickly interview. He had just spent the past hour talking to her, and thought it was a good idea for me to meet her. All good, I just had to quickly run to the bathroom. When I asked her “Can you please give me one second,” she apparently understood something along the lines of “can you please follow me.”  And since some ad agencies give their conference rooms funny themed names, she thought that me holding a meeting in the restroom was something completely feasible. So she followed me. Fortunately, I had closed the door before an extremely awkward moment was about to happen. Needless to be said,  no icebreakers were needed to get the interview started.

    Mario my friend, I swear you are the only person I know that has such oddly funny things happen to them. It cracks me up reading this stuff.
