    There is this really really really stunningly attractive girl at work like 9.8/10. She is the admin support for our directorate but she rarely has anything to do with our team as we're tucked away in our own office rather than the main open plan section.

    Any way we were talking away and it got a bit blokeish. I had my back to the door and I said "all I'm saying is that I would let Sarah piss on me" guess who decides to make a rare trip our office. She was standing right in the door way and heard everything. She got very embarrassed quickly got the signature she needed and left.

    I feel really bad cos she looked really embarrssed and shocked and I'm worried about my job and what will happen if she makes a complaint about me. In a way it's a compliment but I don't think she took it that way. What should I do?

    did you mean poss ?

    I would go and apologise to her asap. Preferably do this with someone else female around in case she feels uncomfortable. I would say 'I know you heard a comment earlier which probably made you feel uncomfortable. It was only meant to be a joke and a compliment but I instantly regretted it and I want to apologise for making you feel uncomfortable or upset. I respect you as a coworker and I hope you accept my apology'.
