This just happened.
I was sitting a full day seminar at work. It's a mandatory lecture on safety. We were just over an hour in and everyone is bored out of their minds. Death by Powerpoint.
No "the blood flows freely" videos, no "Bob got his arm caught in the meat grinder and now we call him lefty" stories. Nothing.
Just some guy droning on about crap a six year old could figure out would cost him a limb if he did.
So I'm texting my buddy back at the office (he goes tomorrow) about how boring it is and he's tries to tell me that it can't be that bad.
So I decide to text back a clip from the movie Alien, when Ripley comes up on the guy that the Alien has cocooned to eat later. You know, the guy who moans "Kiiiiiiiillllllll meeeeeeeee".
So I find the clip and go to link it into the text and I fuck up and it starts playing. Loudly. Loud enough for everyone in the room to hear it, including my boss.
Cue about 5 seconds of dead silence in the room, followed by a chuckle, followed by the entire room losing it. Except the speaker and my boss.
Soooooooo, I've been sent back to the office. Boss is still at the seminar. I have no idea what comes next.
My boss is pretty cool, but I gotta think something's coming out of this that I'm not gonna like.
Edit: Didn't expect this to blow up like this....
My boss didn't come by during lunch but did email to tell me that he'd see me at tomorrow's seminar and that we'd talk about what happened today.
So it looks like I still have a job, but I'm thinking this talk will not be fun... Will update afterwards.
**Edit 2: So I came in early and the boss and I had our chat. Not surprisingly, I'm sitting the seminar today and expected to be "attentive and respectful".
I'm also going to be making an apology to the presenter for what happened yesterday.
Of course, the entire office now knows what happened, so the conversation started out pretty heated, but as it went on,
he had moments where I could see he was trying hard not to laugh at the situation. He did threaten to make me teach the seminar next year, but I think he knows that would end badly for everyone.
**The story is trending to reach legendary status in the office, so I'm expecting it will be all high five's and handjobs for the next month or so.
Come to think of it, I think the sexual harassment seminar is coming up soon.
Anyone remember which movie had the guy who kept hitting on chicks and then when he got turned down he'd say "so I guess a blowjob in the parking lot is completely out of the question"?
Oh, and can you include a link on how to *link* it into a text? Thanks. :)**
