I am now faced with the task of trying to justify to a coworker who just walked past my office exactly why I was standing and positioning a hand-held mirror so that I could get a better view (or should I just say, a view) of my ass. Really, I was just concerned that I had sat on something nasty earlier that may have stained my dress. I was not checking my rearside out. Honest.

I'm sure Hallmark makes a co-worker card for this kind of predicament.
