OK, so today I was having a meeting with the brand new big boss (to make it worse, I was being told off a bit) and when sitting in the big boss offices I LEAKED on someone else's chair........ I had a bad feeling when I got up and swiftly nipped it under the desk - I'm not sure if he saw... but tomorrow when they go back in they will see!! To make it worse, my card doesn't let me in that room, so I don't know how to fix it (to be honest I doubt it will come out anyway) What should I do? Leave it and hope nobody realises it was me? Try and get it swapped? I have no idea.... but I am completely humiliated sad(( PLEASE any tips would be appreciated!!!

Assume you leaked blood?

I wouldn't worry about it. It's not like you did it on purpose and anyone with half a brain cell would know that.

It's just one of those things that happens sometimes - just a natural bodily function. No need to be mortified.

Either befriend a cleaner, or pretend you didn't notice and do nothing.

I've done this before OP, mortifyingly I tried to get rid of it with my own SPIT though, assuming no one was there (what was I thinking). Someone was <changes name and leaves country>

In seriousness though, it's ok and perfectly natural! Style it out! We've all been there wine

What colour is the chair? Unless it's bright white it won't be nearly as bad by tomorrow.

That was a glass of wine btw not anything else mooncup blush

What colour are the seats? If dark fabric no one will probably notice.

esmeralda1234 Thu 17-Sep-15 01:42:07

the fabric is bright blue blush

I'm just going to pretend it wasn't me... Might wander in tomorrow with a coffee and * accidentally * spill some on the chair if I can get in. Or wheel it out into another floor far far far away...

Any mark could in theory have been left by someone else.
Was there any mark on your own outer clothing. If there I, it still doesn't mean it marked the chair - unless you actually saw it. ?

no one will know it was you. but unless you had a floaty skirt spread carefully around your body, surely there was a stain on your clothes too?

brenda is that your standard thread police reply tonight or...

BrendaandEddie Thu 17-Sep-15 06:31:15

There an Echo. Last time was a white chair iirc

britnay Thu 17-Sep-15 06:39:19

no, we have definitely had this thread, though last time it was a group meeting at work, not just one person?

britnay Thu 17-Sep-15 06:39:51

and yes brenda, a white chair

So what if we've had the same thread before? There are hundreds of duplicate threads on MN. Is it inconceivable that the same embarrassing thing could happen more than once? In this case it's very likely. In fact I'm suprised it hasn't happened more.

BalloonSlayer Thu 17-Sep-15 06:54:31

What, so you are saying that this sort of thing never happens? That women don't ever have flooding? Or so few that it can't happen to two people who belong to the same internet forum? confused Lucky you, I guess.

OP, there will have been loads of people who sat on that chair in the course of a day or week. No one will know it was you. flowers

I except I am dull and have been here too long to remember this, it's just remarkably similar! Slag away

Britnay. Wasn't it a glass fronted meeting room

britnay Thu 17-Sep-15 07:09:08

it was!
I'm glad I'm not the only one who remembers random threads from years ago! ;)

GloGirl Thu 17-Sep-15 07:13:10

It wasn't years ago it was only a couple of months.

Shows how common it is. The general consensus was to sneak in work early and clean it up.

Salt and cold water is supposed to work well. Or buy a vanish spray thing from the supermarket

I'm sure I've read this before...
