"All in favor..."
Here’s an embarrassing work story from the past...I was sitting in a board meeting as a guest. I was considered senior staff, and was therefore permitted to attend and observe. My boss gives a report, his boss gives a report, there are legal and financial reports given, etc. The first order of business is to approve the minutes from the previous meeting. A motion is made, it’s seconded, discussion is opened, and then the board chair says, “All in favor say aye...” This is where it gets embarrassing.
I’m so used to sitting on a board, making and approving motions, etc., that I chimed in like it was second nature and said, “Aye,” OUT LOUD. Thank goodness a colleague's shoulder was available for me to bury my face in! Thank you to those in earshot for not laughing me out of the room. I don’t know if there were glares from my boss or colleagues as I probably blacked out for a minute, but good grief! Anyone else have an embarrassing work story they’d like to share? 🤭🤫 🤦🏽♀️
