At work one day, instead of greeting a patient at the desk with "Good Morning, how can I help you", I greeted them as if I was answering the phone So I said something like "Good Morning, *work place*, this is MerryR". Never lived it down!! A work colleauge yelled out the patient's amount owing once instead of their name. That was pretty funny to
The day DS was due i decided to go and do a massive food shop so off i went. It took me ages, the trolley was almost overflowing, i went through the checkout and it came to $320, umm where was my wallet. I had left the house with nothing but my keys. Whoops!
i was so embarassed i told the lady i had left my wallet in the car and would just duck out and get it, instead i jumped in the car went and got my wallet and went and completed a whole shop again at a different supermark!
I know this sounds so ridiculous but it's true...
When I was pregnant I was on my mobile talking to someone and while I was chatting I was searching the house frantically for.... Wait for it...... My mobile.....
It happened twice!
Oh god! I have way to many! The one that gets repeated the most often ni my family would be when I was about 15, we were on a dirt road after seeing this sign a couple of times I finally asked what a "D.I.P was?".. Umm, derr, Its a dip, funny how they coincided with a dip in the road.
I cannot live that one down!
Brought a customer back from hold and instead of saying 'thanks for holding for me' I said 'thanks for holding me'..
Making a personal call and when the place answers you say, "Hi this is (name) from (workplace) ... except that doesn't matter because this isn't about work..."
Or, using the home phone an pressing "0" for an outside line.
When I was a recruiter I was doing a reference & asked the referee Could you leave him unsatisfied? When I meant to say Could you leave him unsupervised? Very red cheeked moment in an open plan office!

Twice this pregnancy I've used the ATM to withdraw money, took my card, receipt, forgot the money! Luckily both times it was only $20.
I've also put the car into 1st instead of reverse and vice versa when leaving a friends/shops etc. Gives my reflexes quite the workout!
