Same story ...

... happened to me 20 years ago.

New company, I was calling a vendor support, discussing with a lady. But the 2 lads in my office were laughing very loudly, making the discussion very difficult.

I don't remember the details but I covered the phone's handset to tell my buddies "shut up, I'm with a chick from $vendor !". I actually used the french term "gonzesse" which is ok, but just not politically correct.

Only when resuming the call, she took offense of my words. I was livid.
