My friend asked if I had seen a colleague’s ring and I said no. She said “omg, it has to be six carats. It’s huge!” I asked if it was a solitaire and she said “No, I’m pretty sure it’s a real diamond!” LOL
Then later we were talking about my wedding and I was telling her about the centerpieces, and I said that we will also get a table runner for each table. She was flabbergasted by this and I couldn’t figure out why she thought that was so expensive … Turns out she thought that meant each table had a personal waitperson to “run” items and dishes to exclusively their table. Haha!! Why she thought I would include waitstaff in a conversation about decor is beyond me …
I know there was a time when I didn’t know any of this stuff either! Tell me funny ones you’ve encountered (or said/believed yourself!!)

When I went to my first appointment at a bridal salon to try on dresses, I had no idea how the whole thing worked. I mean ZERO clue. So I walk in and start rifling through the racks of dresses and am totally confused — where are the sizes? I tell the consultant my size, and she kinda nods like she doesn’t give a shit. Starts pulling dresses and I’m like, wait, what size are all these? She tells me they’re a 12 and I’m even more confused. A 12 will not fit me! It took embarrassingly long for it to dawn on me that you don’t actually buy the dress you try on in the store — you order your dress. And no matter what size you are, you try on a 12 with the clamps on the back.
That bridal consultant must have thought I was a grade A moron.
