funny + embarrassment

so today at work, i was researching companies on a website called hoovers. while talking to a co-worker, i asked her what i should do if i can't find the company on that website. after a second, she started laughing. i was so confused. Then she explained it to me.

"the website you are using is called hoovers. you just called it hooters."

i was mortified. i fake laughed for a second just to show that i did think it was funny (although at the moment, it was more embarrassing than funny). she was still laughing. all along i was thinking "holy crap. i just said hooters in my cubicle at work. to a co-worker. where everyone could hear me."

awesome. nice work shan.

Ha ha! That's funny! Don't be so hard on yourself. Just see the humor in it and laugh at yourself - you're only human!
