Embarassing Moment No. 1389

This morning at the library, I went to the bathroom. As usual, I made a toilet seat with my toilet paper. I mean, it is a public bathroom. No big whoop.

Five seconds later, I washed my hands and headed out the door. Again, no big whoop.

Then, a few minutes later, I noticed a young girl following me. She looked at me, then she looked away. We were making weird eye contact--the kind you might see in a Seinfeld episode (note: this is how I base my life... I always say, "it was like I was in a Seinfeld episode!")

Anyway, she finally approached me.

Maybe she had a question. Maybe she recognized me from the news. Maybe she needed me to do something for her...

I looked at her with that anticipation...like, "yes?" She leaned over and whispered, "Excuse me, you have a piece of toilet paper hanging out of your pants. I just wanted to tell you before anyone saw it."

ARGH!

I pulled it out from the top of my pants, said thank you, and ran away. The sad thing is that it happened to me once when I worked at KY3, too. I can't help it if I like to make toilet seats! At least it wasn't the paper I used. Ek.

A case of the Mondays...

What a riot! Don't feel too bad, Michelle! Working in a library is a lot like being on stage all day--something like this was bound to happen! Remind me and I will share some of my blunders.

I may sue for having Pepsi MAX shooting out of my nose. Girl, you need to do a butt check, seriously. As a guy I check the zipper area and rear before I leave a bathroom, it's a habit now.

Whew!
It's a good thing that young girl approached you before anyone noticed.
That would have been horribly embarrassing if anyone else found out what happened.
Oh, wait...

HA!

hahahaha! i will definitely do the butt check from now on.

it was really embarassing, but too damn funny not to share...

as for the 18 inch toilet paper tail--what kind of toilet seat are you making?! but, oh, i feel your pain. you could always play it off by pretending to be drunk... or that a really mean drunk girl played a joke on you in the bathroom...
