I Forgot to Zip!

Today was perhaps the most embarrassing time for me as a Trainer. I was in a secondary school conducting training as usual and having lots of fun there, too. After a short toilet break, I was back in front of the training room talking to some of the students when a boy told me, "Sir, your coffee shop is open." I knew what that meant. It struck me right away that I forgot to zip up my pants after returning from the toilet!!! I can't believe it! I am not sure why I forgot to zip. Maybe I was in a hurry or something. But it didn't matter why. I was standing in front of a hundred students and I quickly turned around to zip it up and turned back.

It was too late. Hundred pairs of eyes saw me do it. There were female students too. Haha...And they burst out into a raucous laughter upon seeing me making a fool out of myself. But it was ok for me. I took it in a very light hearted manner and played along with them. One of the qualities that a speaker must have is the ability to laugh at yourself. I laughed along with them and joked about it. This is just one of the many things that could happen to a speaker and he must know how to deal with it. Haha... Was it embarrassing? Of course! But after that, it was all fun!

Let this be a lesson to all the guys out there--please check before you leave the toilet! Especially if you are going to stand in front of a hundred people! After this, my LIFE WILL NEVER, EEE......EE.....EVER, BE THE SAME AGAIN!
