Someone walked in on me expressing. He was more embarrassed than I was. He'll knock next time. Lol.

It's nearly as embarrassing as on my first day back from maternity leave, my (very lovely) male colleague had to tell me my boob was leaking through my top. He gave me the funniest little 'eye's looking at my boob' and said "ummm...thinking of the bub are we?".
Of all things I'd forgotten in that crazy getting ready for the first day and organising a little one to creche...was putting a breast pad in

LOL! I'm expressing right now and expecting my boss to knock on my door any minute...he doesn't actually know I express (very liberal work place here, I don't need to tell anybody my comings and goings)...I wonder what he'll make of the noise of the pump!?

LOL, it would be a male as well! The guys in our office know to avoid one girl's desk when they hear the squeek of the pump.

I've only had the occasional door knock expressing at work, but the raised eyebrows from male colleagues when I'm wheeling the old girl back to her home (I work in a PICU, so use all the work stuff... way quicker, hurrah!), and carrying a bottle of milk! Priceless...
I always offer them some, strangely no takers yet!

Oh my gosh that post had me rofl, that would be my worst nightmare.

Same thing happened to me at work once before too. I can understand why my work place do not have locks on the first aid room but gee it would come in handy at times like these.

The same thing happened to me.....there is now a lock on the door!

haha! I can relate, I had to express in a shared office that wasn't even mine and every day I was at work had to kick two people out (including one male) to express. I made a big sign and stuck it on the door "DO NOT ENTER ROOM IN USE" one afternoon as the man in question thought I was all done and strolled back in with a coffee and snack. There was a running joke for a while about what sort of milk he took in his coffee......
