Mensagem:  Your secretary is changing a light bulb.  The bad news is that she falls.  The good news is that you catch her in your arms and she doesn't hurt herself.  The real bad news is that your wife has just walked through the door.  You're in a compromising situation.

You call your girlfriend Lori.  Her name is Susan.  You're in a compromising situation.

You find a pen at work, and you put it into your pocket.  Your colleague sees it and says it's hers.  You're in a compromising situation.

In a nutshell, it is a situation that may be innocent but it gives the appearance of being wrong, deceitful, immoral, etc.
