ever had this happen to you?
at my staff meeting last week, i thought i lost my scarf. i only realized 3 hours later when i had to rush off to a staff training. rushing and panicking, i ran to the coffee shop [where we had the meeting] and spoke to one of the staffs.
"i was here earlier, at that table. i think i dropped my scarf?"
"oh? wait a sec, i'll go check at the back."
so he did.
now here's the twist. while he was at the back, looking, i rummaged through my handbag and somehowwww... found my scarf balled up in there. [damn big handbags!] but yea, it was there! it was bloody there! *a bitter sweet reunion indeed!*
SOOoo anywayyyy... when the poor dude came back, he told me apologetically "sorry, it appears no one has found it..."
i bit my lower lip. *to confess or not to confess?* GAH!
he then turned to his colleague and asked "did you see a scarf around?"
*shit shit shit... more people was getting involved!*
"oh.. did you ask the back..?" the colleague asked, and they went on discussing...
that was when i FINALLY interjected... saying... "i must've dropped it somewhere else. thanks anyway guys. i'll just keep looking." and i fled.
a cowardly act, i know...
... BUT WHAT WOULD YOU HAVE DONE?!
