    ...if their fly was undone or they had food in their teeth?

    Personally I have no qualms about pointing this out to culprits and the response is usually one more of gratitude than embarrassment.

    Reason being, I have just been walking around for 15 mins or so with my fly zip undone and no-one let me know I was on display. :tongue: Now, either they were admiring the view (unlikely) or they were too embarrased to tell me. OK, they may not have noticed but that's irrelevant for this query!

    So, would you tell them or keep quiet?

    I would tell them, for sure. I would extend that to telling them they had a bogey stuck on their nose.

    I have yet to see the secretary walk in with her skirt tucked into her knickers, though.

    Sure would - I did this with a colleague yesterday. To my shame, I didn't tell someone on a beach that they'd suffered a swimsuit malfunction and their top had come undone. In my defense, she was magnificent IIRC and I was 12.
    First pair I'd seen...

    You knows it!:biggrin:

    I work in an office with two blokes (both of whom are off today) and no women. Wardrobe malfunctions get mentioned.

    I felt it necessary to tell the security guy where I visit exactly that last week, because he did have a huge one dangling. Mind you, he is a pompous prat.

    When I walked back into my office with a long piece of bog paper hanging out of the back of my trousers, the whole office was good enough to let me know.

    One of my Linguistics lecturers at Uni blew a big bogey onto his jersey whilst demonstrating a nasal fricative during a Phonetics tutorial. He was such a nice old gent, and we just couldn't tell him for fear of making the poor soul all embarrassed.

    I'm sure Ethel in the office would have sorted it out for him afterwards when she noticed...
