#413: Humor in Bad Situations

On Monday at work I accidentally flushed my work ID badge down the toilet. It happened so fast I’m not even exactly sure how it happened, but I knew there was nothing I could do to stop it or get it out. I had to go tell my boss what’d happened so I could get it a new one, and when I did I was surprised when he and the people sitting around his desk who happened to hear as well burst out laughing.

I was a bit embarrassed about what’d happened that at first I couldn’t figure out why they were laughing. But the more I thought about it I realized it was funny and I laughed too. It made me feel better about what’d happened and not as embarrassed. It’s amazing what a little appropriate humor can do in bad situations to ease the tension or make someone feel better, and I’m glad it happened in my case or I’d probably still be feeling bad about what happened.
