Most Embarrassing Work Mishaps Revealed

London, July 24 (IANS) Women with their skirts stuck in their pants and men calling their boss "mum" or "dad" are among the most embarrassing social mishaps at work, reveals a study.

In a survey involving more than 3,000 workers, two-thirds of them revealed they had awful moments, with men more prone to them than women, reports

They range from the mildly awkward to the ghastly - such as vomiting in front of the boss. Topping the list is sending an unprofessional or bitchy email to the wrong person.

Moreover, nine per cent of men name being caught in an "inappropriate situation" with a colleague at an office party as their most uncomfortable moment. But only six percent of women go along with this.

"Over the course of our lives it’s likely that we will all have at least one memory that makes us cringe," said Dave Snow, from Home Learning, who carried out the survey.
