London, July 23 (ANI): Sleeping in a corporate meeting is no more at the top of the list of most embarrassing mishaps at work - calling your boss ‘mum’ or ‘dad’ is.

Women with their skirts stuck in their pants and men calling the boss “mum” or “dad” are among the most embarrassing social mishaps at work, according to new UK survey.

Carried out amongst of 3,000 workers by vocational tuition provider Home Learning College, it revealed that men are more prone to these gaffes than women.

Another one that tops the list is sending an unprofessional or bitchy email to the wrong person.

Interestingly, nine per cent of men name being caught in an “inappropriate situation” with a colleague at an office party as their most uncomfortable moment.

But for women, the number is only six percent.

“Over the course of our lives it’s likely that we will all have at least one memory that makes us cringe,” The Daily Express quoted Home Learning’s Dave Snow, as saying. (ANI)
