Him being right behind you makes you look a little dumb, yes, but otherwise it was an honest mistake and you weren't making fun or him or anything so I dont see why an apology and just going on with your day wouldn't fix everything here...

This was one of those situations where it would have been better to remain quiet and appear stupid rather than opening your mouth and removing all doubt.

I don't understand how what he said was a problem. It sounded like a legitimate question, and the way OP worded it, he wasn't reading someone. So, I wouldn't have really been offended.

Agreed. It's an honest question OP. Might as well make the most of it and introduce yourself to the new employee, as well. He may be new, or he may be new to you... lol! It's all good! Got to make the most of things in life! You may have just made a new friend! Laugh it off. :)

I doubt he was offended. People in wheelchairs have to deal with so many stupid questions and comments, I'm sure an honest mistake like that was no big deal.

That's definitely true. I've been in a wheelchair for about 10 years and I probably would have just laughed and maybe given him a hard time about it, but in a joking way. Life is too short to get offended or upset about much, especially innocent little mistakes

You weren't trying to make fun of him OP. I probably would have assumed that it was a standing desk myself. Hopefully your co-worker saw the funny side of it.

Why does everyone get offended so easily now? Back in the day people used to have thicker skins. It was an honest mistake OP, don't sweat it.

"Back in the day" people still got offended but they didn't say anything about it. People have learned that they don't have to take the abuse from other people. But in Op's case, I doubt hid coworker will be offended. It was an honest mistake.

Well now you have met John the jerk who works here...you'll enjoy working nearby him... I sure hope It doesn't reflect on you too much but you might have a label for awhile

A bit awkward, but hopefully they took it as the pretty darn innocent mistake it was. The folks I know with different needs, blind/wheelchair/etc, have pretty great senses of humor about this.
