Beauty mark

Working on the same floor as reception has it’s up’s and downs. We have easy access to the washrooms, board rooms and assistance from our awesome receptionist. On the other side of the coin, you never know which client you may bump in to and need to be constantly mindful of your behavior. A lesson which my colleague.. You know who you are needs to be refreshed!
One of the senior managers got in to the elevator with a client. My colleague was feeling swanky in her new dress so she confidently made small talk. They were gracious in response. As they stepped out, she took a quick glance at herself in the mirror as she was feeling pretty pleaded with her appearance and to her horror she saw a dark brown blob on her face! The offending blemish was none other than Nutella! Yes, I know it could have been worse, but she had walked through the parking, through the mall and rode the elevator! What is wrong with people these days, no one said a word!
Later that day, my colleague and I happened to be in the washroom at the same time. Let me clarify, we had separate toilets Lol! When she explained she was getting increasingly frustrated with how many people pee on the seat! I agreed it was getting out of hand and reminded her of the if you sprinkle while you tinkle, please be sweet and wipe the seat ditty and we laughed. Towards the end of business I popped back to the washroom, always a good idea to go before you get in traffic. On my way back I noticed a Senior Manager arranging a cab for a client who was suited and booted in his finest attire. As I looked back in front of me, my colleague pointed her finger right at my face and loudly enquire if I had pee’d on the seat? Well, I looked at her, then the client, then the manager. Still my colleague was oblivious.. So I quickly replied “erm,not that I’m aware of” and rushed back to the sanctity of our office. when she got back I started trying to ask what on earth she was thinking but as I tried to i couldn’t help but laugh. Some other team members heard our hysterics and we tried to tell them of her day with the ute la and toilet accusations but we were doubled in full belly chortles! All I could think about was the client getting in his taxi and his lasting impression was my name and pee in the same sentence! Awesome…
