I have made so many bloopers in my life, it is hard to keep track of them all.  I wrote an article about some of them on my blog Laughing All the Way to Work: A Survival Blog for Today's Administrative Assistant called Office Confidential. Check it out and come back here and let me know what you think.

Since my other blog is a much more serious blog where I try to be professional most of the time, I decided for the times that I didn't feel like it, I would come over here and tell stories and hopefully share stories that people send me about what happened to them.

How about you?  Has anything ever happened that was embarrassing at the time, but now that you think about it was pretty darn funny.  I think the funniest stories are from real life.  For instance, I had only been working in my new job for a few weeks and was sitting at the front desk to relieve the receptionist.   My boss walked by and asked me what the password was on a site he needed to log into. The password was LRGPassword, but I told him to remember it was case sensitive and started to spell it out for him -- "Capital LRGP and then..." but stopped when I realized what the rest of it spelled. He looked at me with a knowing smile and said, “Yes, Patricia, continue..."

If you want to share, e-mail me at and we can laugh together.

An Admin. Assistant friend of mine got a call one day from a man with a very thick accent. She could barely make out what he was saying, but finally got who he was looking for. Then she had to get his name to leave a message so she asked for his name and he said Arusband, or something that sounded like remotely like that. She asked him 3 times to repeat, and finally asked him to spell it, and then it clicked in...he was saying "her husband"... We still talk about that one to this day.
