Oops!!

Oops of the month…

· Instead of writing “look at the concepts in the other categories and adapt them for another category”, I wrote “loot at the concepts…. “ and mailed it to the entire team in office.
· In the store I told my sons ‘say hi to didi (meaning older girl)’ and the mother said ‘no he is bhayia (meaning older boy)’ . (his hair was tied up either because he was a sardarji or he had not got the 1st tonsure done)
· While rehearsing a customer presentation, instead of Lebanese I said Lesb1an
· I was coming in the right lane. The cop stopped the cars to allow pedestrians standing at the median to cross. The cop actually escorted the pedestrians, and smartly I crossed the zebra line and the cop who started coming back towards the median got hit
· I almost missed a wedding that was happening in the morning, thinking that the invitation was for the evening. Bless AD who called me to check whether I was coming
· I called up my cousin’s wife and spoke to her for 20 minutes and again sms ed her for something and forgot to wish her for her son’s 3rd birthday (happened in February)
· I closed my eyes just for a moment to rest my tired eyes and a senior colleague had a great laugh thinking I was fast asleep. (I had a hard time convincing him that I was not)
· I went to the airport via a short cut, missed the important turn and finally saw myself arrive at kattipara junction that I wanted to avoid and facing the opposite direction
· I was trying to show my mom a short cut from my sister’s house to mine and found myself in another street all together
· The odd-job boy of in the complex went on leave without permission and was missing for a week. I built up a lot of anger and scolding lines and when I saw him today, I was about to scold him and I burst out laughing instead– I think because of the relief to see him back so that things can come back to normal. Then sarcastically I asked him “why didn’t you stay back home for tamil new year also”. The sarcasm fell flat as he never understood what I was trying to tell in my wonderful tamil and he replies- “ok madam I will come and collect the circular for the monthly meeting’

haha...i love the airport one and tamil new years one...not sure if u remember or even know :), in a Marico presentation of ours, I told Harsh Mariwala, 'I propose romance!!!' and didnt even realise till I came out of the meeting and CV told me!! Romance was the name of the fragrance, but how embarrassing is that in front of 20 people!!

Yeah, almost missing a wedding keeps happening to me too, I once even arrived at a wedding venue in the evening only to find out that the event was in the morning! So much for all the trouble I took to deck up!:)

I was directed to your site by Tharini who said you too are a mom of twins. I haven't compiled my set of oops! but one definitely is telling wrong tales of the wrong son to my husband. I still get them confused!
