Misty's Most 
Embarrassing Moments
Let's face it, I am the kind of girl who has always tripped and fallen in front of the boy she likes! My life is filled with moments that should be "put in a box and dropped in the ocean" as my BF says but something so funny just happened at my office that it prompted me to share one...


1.) At 20, I was lead Analyst on one of my company's largest accounts, the Bear Stearn's account. I was asked to fly to the company's location and give a sales presentation. Mind you... the audience was Sr. Executive level old men, and old ugly women who have fought tooth and nail to be taken seriously and get to where they are in that company. Here I am a little cute blonde talking software, trying to engage them in a pricey contract. So, being the problem solver that I am.. I put on a suit, wrap my hair in a bun, and finish off my look with non-prescription glasses... All to be taken as serious as possible. I hook my computer up to the projector that covers the entire wall behind me and begin with my pitch. Everything is running smoothly, the audience is engaged and I am kicking butt! I go to demonstrate how to upload a document to the system, and when I selected "browse" it pulled up the last folder which I Browsed to. Yes, up comes a wall full of pictures of me and my 3 girl friends at the Rehab pool party in Vegas drunk out of our minds!! Me, in a gold sequined bikini, and gold stilettos, looking like I could barely say my own name.  ***Gulp** Face turned the color of a tomato as the other sales guys in the room tried to direct the attention away from the presentation as I frantically tried to remove the images from the screen. I could have died!!! The rest of my career with that company was fruitful but in every new hire orientation, I became the example of client etiquette....... FML!


My life in one giant embarrassing moment wrapped up in a pretty package! More to Come =)
