You don’t want everyone to know about it…

We all do it every day at the office but I’ve never heard of anyone publicising it in the way this gentleman did.

blog-mic-275x275Everything at the city council meeting in Georgetown, Texas was completely normal and serious until Mayor Dale Ross broke away from the meeting for a bathroom break.

Nothing unusual there I hear you say.

Unfortunately for the mayor though, during his haste to go to the bathroom he forgot that he was wearing a wireless microphone.

Thirty seconds after leaving the panel and just as Rachael Jonrowe was talking about friends and family members who had contracted antibiotic resistant diseases, the Mayor can be heard urinating and then flushing afterwards courtesy of the microphone which he left on.

It’s a valuable lesson for all of us if we were ever to wear a wireless microphone at an event and it was too much for Ms Jonrowe who despite her best efforts couldn’t control her laughter.

What was also interesting was that there was no sound from the microphone of the Mayor washing and drying his hands. Maybe he was so keen to rush back to proceedings that he simply forgot to wash its hands??

Mistakes happen but unfortunately for Mayor Ross the meeting was being streamed over the Internet.

This though was not the type of “live streaming” that anyone was expecting.

The video of the event can be seen below.
