Verbal Diarrhea Diaries: Hung Up

Oh dear me!

As I am walking out the ladies room, a colleague is walking out of the adjacent men’s room. My earring chose that moment to drop  from my ear and we both bent to retrieve it. As we rose I observed that he needed to “XYZ” and whispered such to him.  He was so embarrassed as all get out that he full body slammed into the men’s room door when he spun around to run back in and adjust the issue. Unfortunately, that only made things worse as he bounced off the door causing more of an issue. Guess who now knows that said colleague a) clearly is commando today and b) is hung.

I somehow kept a straight face as I quickly turned to walk away and nearly walked into another co-worker a couple of steps away. By the expression on her face I knew she saw…

“Was that his…?”
“Hamm as in Jon?”

The same male colleague exits the men’s room again, everything now in its proper place this time. He sees us standing there, clearly knowing what’s being discussed and all but runs down the corridor to get away.

My co-worker nods, still clearly impressed by the glimpse she saw earlier. Then looks at me rolling her eyes at the bad Jon Hamm joke reference. “That’s so cheesy, you can do better than that.”

“Perhaps” I nod grinning, “but now I think I want croque monsieur for lunch.”

  1. Laughed all through this post. I can imagine how embarrassed the poor guy felt. At least no one had their phone and posted on Facebook or any other social media site. I guess you and your co-worker will never look at him the same way.

  2. “I guess you and your co-worker will never look at him the same way.”

    We’re pretty much mental juveniles and he’s pretty much going to be a hamm to the two of us from here out.

    • There are shy guys out there, Arisvera. Where even something as impressive as that is not something talked about. All I can say is, if it’s the quiet ones you need to watch out for, his wife is one *lucky* woman.

So? What do you think?
