What Did You Forget?

Embarrassing admission...

I forgot to wear my belt to work today. Snazzy suit and tie outfit - no belt... Feh.

Anyone else have stories of items you forgot to bring to work or school? Do tell.

Hmmm. As one who never wears a belt, I don't see the big deal about that.

Forgetting my watch was killer one day a few months ago. Never mind that we have about 3 dozen clocks in our office space, and on each computer and on the phones. That my watch wasn't on my wrist threw off my entire day.

There have been a couple of times I've gotten to work and realized that my lower teeth were still at home. Not only did it make lunch less fun, everyone wonders when I developed the lisp.

I had met a friend from out of town on a weeknight for some drinks. I hadnt seen the guy in a few years so we had alot of catching up to do. We ended up closing the local pub.

Needless to say I was wrecked the next morning. Apart from waking up late, I was completely hungover. I hauled ass, showered, shaved, got dressed and flew out the door.

When I got to the office, everyone knew my brains were scrambled eggs but paid me no mind. It wasnt until lunchtime, when I got into the elevator that a complete stranger gets in, looks at me and says "Do you know your shirt is on backwards?"

I have two pairs of tassel loafers that look exactly the same except one pair is black and the other is burgandy -- you guessed it. I wore one black shoe and one burgandy shoe. To top it off, I had to give a presentation that morning!

If anyone noticed, they didn't say anything about it.

Another time, I went on a job interview and the lady who interviewed me asked me if I needed to use the restroom about 10 times. When I got back out to my car, I realized that my fly was wide open. I hadn't forgotten to zip up. The nylon zipper was broken and when it was zipped up, it would remain open below the zipper. The worst part was going back in for the second interview.

Years ago, in the middle of summer nonetheless, I was on my way to work whan I realized I forgot to put on deodarant. So, I hauled ass back to the apartment to put it on, and got into work late...

I live in NYC. I had an interview today in Westchester, on Westchester Ave. Well, I plugged it into Mapquest and got a map. Lo and behold when I arrived this morning nice and early, it was in the Bronx, exact address, but a simple brownstone. No company!

Luckily I left early, raced on the highway, dug out a map, read it while driving, found some notes and got to the real place 10 minutes before the interview. If I get this job, man I'll laugh.

Seeing as how I'm a bachelor I use my dryer as a sort of make-shift dresser. I wash my clothes, put them in the dryer then take them out of the dryer and put them on after my shower in the morning.

Imagine my chagrin, however, when I arrived at work with a pair of underwear static-clung to my back.

Nothing says professionalism like a pair of tighty-whities stuck to your back.

I used to accidentally take things I didn't need to school and college: notably the cordless house phone, my alarm clock, a strappy stiletto sandal, and various kitty toys. I'm still one of those people who just chucks everything in her handbag at the last minute!

I work at a bank, and about 2 or 3 times a year I'll get distracted at just the wrong moment while gettng dressed and forget to put on my tie. After the first couple times I realized I was never going to learn, so I just kept an "emergency tie" in my car.

Which worked fine, except that the last time I forgot was shortly after I bought a new car, and I hadn't yet transferred all the necessities over from my old car.

I spent the day tieless and embarrassed.

I am a programmer and I left my work laptop at home once. I had to go home to get it otherwise I couldn't work at all.
