Embarrassing meeting situations… we’ve all had them

I came back from a meeting yesterday where I had managed to knock over a jug of milk in a rather posh restaurant. It went all over the grey carpet and my handbag and was, of course, rather embarrassing.

So, naturally, when I got home I tweeted about it and the responses that followed from others are priceless.

My personal favourites include:

So how do you recover? Acknowledge the situation and take control of it. Perhaps it is through humour, apologising or following up with an explanation if you only realise after the meeting. We all make mistakes…it’s how we deal with them that matters.

Please take a look at the hashtag #SoDoIGetTheJob and share your embarrassing meeting moments- it’s really quite cathartic!

Take a look at the Storify to read other’s embarrassing moments and be warned…they WILL make you laugh out loud!

  1. haha – I do like confessional sharing 🙂 One time I had had an intimate operation, the recovery of which was causing me discomfort when I was in an interview forum. I ended up telling them masses of details about it to their open-mouthed and slightly disturbed expressions #SoDoIGetTheJob (and now you’ll all want to know what it was…).

    Another time I inadvertantly winked at the interviewer on the way out, who was to be my Manager. I DID get that job! #cheeky
