My wife embarrassed me?

We had been invited to a fun day that my company was having. We were having a great time and then my wife dropped her purse; she kneeled over to pick it up and loads of people (including my boss) saw her bum crack. This was so humiliating, they were laughing at her and me. She's just embarrassed me in front of all my colleagues. She pulled her trousers up straight away and I know it was an accident but it was just mortifying. Can I salvage our credibility with my co-workers?

  • If she got wasted and hit on your boss then that would be a real problem. What happened was an accident and her embarrassment shouldn't be overlooked just because you want to save face. I'm sure no one who witnessed it is even thinking about it anymore. Get over it, and apologize to your wife for caring more about what others think then comforting her and her feelings.

  • You could shrug it off by making a note that it was an accident, there was nothing that you or she could do, and get over it. If they see you avoiding them or trying to avoid the topic, they'll go ahead and tease you about it. Face it and move on.

    (Honestly, I wouldn't ever be embarrassed by that. I suppose a lot of people are thin-skinned these days).

  • its not a big deal... it was unintentional and your co workers are kinda immature to react like this

  • You might want to consider moving companies, so that you can work with some real ordinary people.. YOU alone might then save your pathetic embarrassment.

  • It's just her bum crack? It's not really that bad. It was an accident, it's not like she just dropped her trousers down in front of everyone and mooned them. Just carry on, no one really cares about it.

    Seriously though, get over it. It's more their problem for purposely being jerks and more your problem for purposely letting jerks get you so upset.

  • You could have regained your credibility by showing your bum crack as well. at least then they would have thought that you're a considerate but humorous husband and not the selfish person they already must know you to be.

  • So you know it was an accident and instead of being concerned for her being laughed at, you are more concerned about yourself. Man you sound like a real prize.

  • Lol first nobody hang on and remember things like that for long and it's kind of stupid of you to think of it over and over again, instead you should think, how would you wife be feeling about it she might not be showing but she might be traumatized inside about it. And people get to good laugh about it so don't think of it take care of your wife, and display your affections to her to make her realize that such little accidents can't change or affect bond of your relationship. Instead of being ashamed you can also laugh it off.

  • Laugh it off tell them to grow up and get a life. If their only fun is laughing at an arse crack then they are a sad bunch. Be proud of your wife look at all her positives that made u fall in love and marry her. If it was the other way around, wouldn't you have wanted your wife to support you and be positive about it? I'm sure you wouldn't want her adding to the embarrassment and having a go at you would you?
    They are only jealous fools just ignore it.

  • Time heals all. Co-worker move on, you move on, new things come up, time heals all. Dont worry about it. And I am someone in the corporate world who has seen and done memorable things that I could just want to die from. Time heals, trust me.

  • If people bring it up, just say she was trying to get you a raise and leave it at that. If you let it become a source of embarrassment, people will keep bringing it up to get a rise out of you (and/or put you down). If you make light of it and don't let your feathers get ruffled, it will disappear very fast.

    • And honestly--you should have a little more sympathy for your wife. Odds are she's far more embarrassed than you.

  • Your career there is over. Don't quit but look for a similar position with a different company and get out as soon as you can.

    And after you've left. Burn the place down and burn down the houses of all your former colleagues apart from your bosses.
    Make sure some of the dirt from your old workplace gets on the gas can you use and then leave it at your old bosses house to make it look like he did it! It's the perfect crime.
    Burn em, burn em all!
