well, I asked my boss where he wanted his 'small tool' put!! (for the record, I have been told, and assured, and reassured that this is *actually* what it is called and I am now the sole female in a construction company, but to say that in a room full of men was a stupid, stupid move!!).
Not to worry, I topped that foible on the same day. I ordered UV protective 'skins' (essentially long-sleeved,cool protective t-shirts for the summer months) for our foremen. I was already embarrassed, and a bit groggy (wisdom teeth pain, took some pain killers and they always hit me pretty hard)...Anyway, I mixed up the words..Foreman, skins, I'll leave you to imagine what I said to create possibly THE most embarrassing moment of my life.
Fortunatly the guys I work with are awesome. I chose to die laughing, instead of plain ol' die, and they had a huuuuge laugh, then forgot about it. But my boss is making me deliver the skins to site, just in case anyone forgets my gaff!!!
