haha! OMG! I'm so embarrassed!

I was on the telephone on hold. They had some music playing to keep me entertained. Whitney Houston's "Greatest Love of All" came on and I started humming and then singing.

The girl came back and caught me bellowing into the phone!

I've never got caught doing it on the phone, but I was at the grocery store the other day and "How Deep Is Your Love?" by the Bee Gee's was playing on the PA.
I was walking all over the store singing I didn't feel so bad though, I walked up to the milk case and the guy standing there was singing too, we just looked at each other and started laughing

So true. I've been caught humming but that's it. Still embarrassing though!

that's great

When I worked in a call center I used to love when that kind of stuff happened. It was much better than the people who yelled at me when they got put on hold

Isn't it nice to know that you brought some humor into someone's dull day?

Oh, I would have loved to hear that! I've done the very same thing. I also tend to sing along in the grocery store if there's no one else in my aisle... and okay, a little dancing with my cart, too.

My father did it bigtime once: he was a pilot (among other things) for the Army, and when he was flying alone, he often passed the time by singing. One of his favorite songs was "Sink The Bismarck," a rousing Johnny Horton tune about tracking the WWII German ship Bismarck:

"...We'll find that German battleship
That's makin' such a fuss
We've got to sink the Bismarck
The world depends on us
So hit the decks a runnin', boys
And spin those guns around
And when we find the Bismarck
We've got to cut her down..."

Well, one day when we were living in Germany (around 1960), Papa was belting out that song as he circled back in toward the post, and when he finished the final verse, he radioed the tower to request clearance to land -- only to find that his radio had been open the whole time, and the GERMAN traffic controller had been listening!

"Did you ever find ze Bismarck, Captain?" the controller asked in a heavy German accent.

"Ah, no sir, not today," my father said sheepishly. "I think I'm about fifteen years too late."

There was a chuckle over the radio and then, "You are cleared for landing, Captain. I hope you will visit us in ze tower and give us a zerenade."

It was an awfully nice invitation, considering he'd just been singing quite enthusiastically about the destruction of a German battleship! But my father was so embarrassed he didn't go.

Oh my gosh this SO happened to me one day ... I was on the phone with a customer service rep from a company with whom I do business ... there was a problem with my account and she asked me to hold while she pulled up my account information. So, whilst on hold, George came up the hallway with his nose smack dab in the beeee-hind of Lexus, his mother. So, I said, "George! Get yer nose outta yer mother's butt!!!" and then I heard this gasp and then chuckle on the other end of the phone. "CATS! I am talking to CATS!" I exclaimed. I learned the rep I was speaking to was a Cat Person too and knew immediately when I said cats what was happening. We laughed for a long time about it and at the end of the call I said, "I have a good friend who works in a call center and she calls me each and every day to tell me about her "call of the day". I am going to be yours, aren't I?" to which she said that I was in fact, her "call of the day."
