Ever been on a conference call and hit "mute" so you could RANT and CURSE about someone or something on the call? And . . . um . . . have you ever forgotten to hit "mute" first?

According to a new survey, 16% of people say they've accidentally said something BAD on a work call because they forgot to mute themselves.

Overall, 72% of people have had SOMETHING embarrassing happen on a work call, although it's usually not as severe as cursing while you thought you were muted . . . the most common embarrassing thing is answering a question that wasn't for you.
