Acknowledge or Ignore (another fart thread)
Monday morning (after a Sunday marathon of beer, wings, etc). Let about a 12-second long hot shot that made my own eyes water -- the worst of the worst eggy foulness possible. Of course, 10 seconds later -- roughly about the time the cloud fully permeates every corner of my office -- the pushy PR exec broad does the combined knock/walk-in-without-waiting-for-my-response and sits right down basically in the middle of ground zero. The fake business smile quickly turns to a horrified face that is even more contorted than usual because I can tell she's trying to hide it. She's in too far now -- she has to start whatever pain-in-the-arse conversation she came in to bother me with.
Would you have acknowledged what you did, and apologized/blamed an upset stomach/etc., or just ignored it completely?
I ignored it.
