Shoot yourself in the foot
Just wanted to liven things up a bit. I recently had an experience in which I might as well have shot myself in the foot. Y'all may realize that I try to be funny, well sometimes, and other times it just comes out, usually at my expense. (get to the point)
I am a photographer at a small college and was recently taking a photo with a student who won an award and the college president. The president remarked on how quickly the photos session went.
So how did I respond? "It goes fast because I don't care anymore..." DOH! I really meant that I don't worry about it because I know what I'm doing. But could I just say those words? NO! I had to say the most stupid thing to the person who is at the top of my "Boss List". Her reply was that I must feel secure in my job (I do, and I said so).
I am certain, (read hoping) that she has a great sense of humor, (she does) and realizes that it's not that I don't care about my job (I really do like my job), but a just a comic (failed) jab!
OK, so what I really want to know is how have you shot yourself in the foot?
I'm still trying to laugh this off, so please help!
