Back when I was a junior receptionist in my first real job I was working for a major web design company that had a lot of cool high profile clients. Well… one day a very important client walked in for a meeting and noticed a lovely plant we just had delivered for the reception area. As the client was such an important one I wanted to do my bit for the company, so armed with a new found urge to impress I enlightened her with the name of the plant “This is what’s known as an ANTHURIUM…” See image above *giggles*
When the client leaned forward to catch a scent of the plant he exclaimed it didn’t have one….
WELL…. THAT just wouldn’t DO and seeing as a few weeks prior I had been watching a nature programme about plants and the such – I remembered a segment about THIS particular plant…. so I decided to re-enact the process of extracting the plant’s “natural scent”… I didn’t explain what I was doing because I thought the surprise would be brilliant. So with forefinger and thumb I began RAPIDLY “encouraging” it’s scent. After a couple of minutes tugging happily away, I looked up to see the client in complete shock and horror and remembered I had yet to explain what I was doing. Before I could catch myself I’d stuck out my fingers and asked her if she fancied sniffing them…. somebody stop me!!!!I thought I was going to die on the spot when the full extent of what I’d just done hit me. Needless to say I finished attacking said plant erotically and went back to my desk, head down.
