Ever gone to work with a huge yellow pee stain on your shirt? I have.
A little background: My husband, son and I temporarily live with my parents until our renovation home is well… renovated. Long story long, when I get ready for work, I have to be quiet as a mouse and sometimes grab things without looking at myself in a full size mirror, because ours is in the abyss we call storage.
Anyway, I put on this clean grey shirt as part of my minimalist capsule wardrobe and wear it with my black work pants and my black blazer as seen on the Minamlist Capsule Wardrobe: Outfits for one work week. I’m not going to lie, I felt awesome! I felt large and in charge in my White House black market grey shirt. It wasn’t until I got to work and took the stairs to the third floor (as usual) and saw this hideous pist stain across my top as if I had spilled coffee on myself. Mind you, the lighting at work where the staircase is located are pretty darn good!
I was upset at myself and even panicked a little bit. I ended up turning my shirt backwards and thought I was in the clear and even said “whew! That was a close one!” until I saw more of the haunting highlighter stain on the bottom right side of my shirt. What a nightmare, I thought! I said to myself to keep my blazer on and act cool. Did I act cool? No! I looked extremely sketchy and possibly borderline psychopath.
As I walked up and down the hall to use the bathroom, I felt like everyone was staring at me and maybe thought I stole a bunch of office supplies which was why there was highlighter stains on the back of my shirt and on the front bottom right. Oh gosh! I know it’s nothing to be mortified about, but when you’re feeling cool and again, “large and in charge”, you will feel like a flea’s poop after checking yourself out in the elevator mirror/only full size mirror you have until you move into your home.
At the end of the day, I survived! I started laughing and ended up calling my husband and telling him what a goof ball I was. Oh, and it was a Monday!
