I was at a trade show and was talking shit about a prospect I met earlier in the day with my coworker at the lobby bar. ย 
Turns out the fvckstick I was complaining about was standing behind me trying to order a drink.
I didnโ€™t get the sale.

I got food poisoning and was sick in the bathroom when my prospect arrived. I didnโ€™t wipe as much as I should have because I was worried about being late and rushed into a 2 person conference room with her.ย 

5 minutes in I realized I could smell shit, and was certain she could too. I anxiously wrapped up the 30 minute interview in 10 minutes and ran back to the bathroom. I never called her again, and I had to throw my briefs in the trash...
