This incident happened several years ago. During that time I felt a bit embarrassed, but come to think about it, it was actually nothing.
Today, I won’t let this thing happened to me again.
However, through this incident, I realised how bad were some people and how supportive were some people too.
I remember I once made myself so embarrassed
Remember it vividly though happened many years
Went to work by company bus when sky still dark
Without knowing I put on wrong shoes, just my luck
A guy with the name of Bernard came to my office
He was from the sales section, never knew he was nosey
“Why one black one brown?” exclaimed Bernard to one guy
I then knew my shoes were of different colours and design
The brown one had a sharper heel while black one was not
They were totally different yet no one saw them, oh my God!
Two guy colleagues witnessed that but dare not laughed at me
One guy offered me his size 42 flip-flop, oh, it was so funny
If he were to laugh, I won’t be so embarrassed, but he kept cool
Made me feel as if I had done something really so shameful
Another guy suggested to send me home to change during lunch
I said “it’s okay, I take company bus home anyway” as I acted calm
“No, you better go back as he will have the news spread to others”
“Who cares” I said “I put on flip-flop, is there anything embarrass?”
Both guys insisted I go home and three of us went on a car at noon
I had my shoes changed at my house and then to lunch, the car “zoom”
After lunch I came back with a pair of lovely brown colours shoes finally
Came in two ladies from the accounts section, so the news spreaded already
Gina said “Eh, I heard that you put on two different types of shoes, but where?”
Sharlene said “I heard Bernard mentioned when I met him at food court there”
I answered “I think something wrong with this guy, he may have colour blind”
“Black to him may be brown, brown to him may be black, look, my shoes were fine”
The above was real happening, many years ago, during that time, I was a bit confused (blame on my “tender” age that time). However, today I am more cool (sounds like real, you believe me?).
