'Foot in Mouth' Disease
Every so often I'll get a bout of 'foot in mouth' disease. I unintentionally say something really stupid and I don't even realise it until it's too late. To be honest I've made so many gaffs and blunders in my time that it's hard to pick out a good example (I must be getting better at blocking them out). This might sound cruel but it always heartens me when I hear someone else going through a bout of 'foot in mouth' disease. It makes me feel better to know that I'm not alone with my relapsing condition. Just the other day I heard a women near me at work congratulate another women on her pregnancy. Unfortunately the women being congratulated wasn't pregnant. The moral of that story is never congratulate any women on being pregnant unless you are 100% sure that she is pregnant. In fact I'd actually advise waiting until she tells you that she is pregnant before handing out the congratulations!
It sure does sound like something you would say! There has been quite a few foot in mouth incidents alright :)
I take full responsibility for all my cringe inducing foot and mouth incidents. Thankfully most people are still talking to me despite hearing what has come out of my mouth at times. :-)
Still, telling RC's other half that you didn't recognise him with his clothes on has to go down as one of the all time classics! :-)Post a Comment
