I am quite good at being super awkward and embarrassing the crap out of myself, but my latest one is too funny not to share.
Monday I was driving home and I had been talking to my mom and I wanted to get off the phone but she kept having one more thing. I finally got off the phone with her and almost immediately it started ringing again. I answered it without looking at the called ID. First mistake.
Second mistake was me saying, "Yes dear?"
There was a long pause and then a decidedly male voice, "May I speak with blah blah?"
Of course I get flustered and start stuttering while frantically trying to see the caller ID to figure out who the hell I was talking to. It was the farrier calling to schedule the appointment this week.
I stammered something about how I thought I was talking to someone else. Duh. He was very polite and didn't laugh at me while on the phone (he is a much better person than I am). And thankfully, I was at work during the appointment so I don't have to see him for another five weeks. Hopefully next time I can remember to look at the caller ID.
