This is not good.

At the moment I'm, pretending to work at national bank in Europe. Last night I was in a hotel watching a gentlemans late night
educational video on the laptop. After I, ahem, no longer required the
film I put the PC into hibernation. Not standby. Just now, here in the
open plan office, I turned the laptop on and it's running on Vista so I
went off to get a coffee while it booted up. Then it came back to life
while I was in the kitchen area. And it started to play the video. And
because last night I used headphones it was set to loud. With no
headphones plugged in. So 100 people (including 2 fairly prudish women)
just got a 5 second gasp of a Deutcher grumble flick.

Also, late on Friday night I was 4rsing about with a colleague and we
dialled in and changed the authentication message for our external users
(i.e. the great and good of the European Central Banking System) from
"What is the name of your first school?" to "What is the name of your
favourite chicken?" Then we forgot to change it back.





I am somewhat embarrassed.

I am somewhat embarrassed.
And somewhat sacked I would imagine. Try and brazen it out by offering the laptop on a loanie to the prudes in the office and tell them you'll keep guard on the ladies door whilst they peruse your offerings.

Quality, if you are going to screw up, do it properly

I'd say you just had an ND!!

you sir are fcuked. But who cares, how many times are you going to get a free beer for that story? And it'll be great watching HR sanitise the events sufficiently to put them in your personnel file.

Claim that you are being bullied and that this was an office prank. As no-one would be stupid enough to leave a grumble-ready-laptop booting up un chaperoned............. :lol:

tell them that your a sperm donor and its work related..(the clinic sent the video to you and it opened by itself when your pc detected an internet connection blar blar)

your just helping people that fire blanks like an upstanding human being!

you can always offer the prudish women a free sample!(in her face)

Very good effort there,scores highly on the fubar scale.

See if you can up the stakes during your boll ocking when it arrives by cranking one out and blaming stress...

Obviously not quick thinking enough were ya ?

You should have immediately blamed the prudish twots for pulling a stupid stunt, head butted the pair of them then stormed out demanding to see the HR rep to file a complaint.
