Ok, so I'm at work at the moment. Just noticed that the armpit of my top has a split along the seam!!! Exposing about 2 inches of my arm/arm pit...
Usually I have a tiny sewing kit in my bag for just such an occassion but dammit dammit dammit I have left it at home...
Am I doomed to spend the rest of the day with my left arm clamped to my side in the manner of those old deodorant adverts....????

or sellotape the seam up on the inside if you don't want to ruin the material..

hmmm...images of boss wandering in and spotting me hunched udner desk with top half off and stapler in hand...now snuffling with laughter at the thought!!

Clutch the stapler under your arm, since that is going to be clamped to your side hiding the rip anyway

out and proud - staple at your desk and keep going - what would Shackleton say?

casually carried stapler out of the office to a toilet in another area <sneaky>
Armpit is now safely re-encased...phew!!
Desperatly trying to remember if I waved my arms around when talking to people earlier ( I normally do...yikes!!)
