I may not have context or am unfamiliar with pregnant talk because I’m not understanding the zinger you gave her lol.  But it happens to the best of us regardless 🙂

My moment of shame happened while I was at work.  A really cute, sweet gal I work with was sitting at the front desk.  I had just walked in the door and walked up to her and said, “Is it raining outside?”. She says no and I just stand there puzzled.  (The reason is because her hair looked wet but was actually greasy).  I say, “Oh, I just thought your hair was wet.”. To which she replies, “Nope.”. And after a few more seconds of silence I say, “I’m just gonna walk away now.  I’m sorry.”

GAH….that was like 5 years ago and I still kick myself for being such a doofus.

This one was just super embarassing…

We were out for a group lunch with my co-workers and we had just placed our orders. One of the guys, Peter, mentioned he didn’t like pickles but forgot to ask for no pickles, and I was thinking sweet, I’ll ask him if I can have it!!!  Before I could ask, someone started talking to me, so I didn’t have a chance to ask until Peter’s plate was set down.  I then blurted out “Peter, can I have your pickle?”  Apparently my 15 co-workers are super immature and ALL burst out laughing before I realized what I had said.  Boy was my face red…

I have twice commented/asked about a pregnancy of two different women who weren’t pregnant.  I felt terrible both times and am trying to remember never ever to say anything about a pregnancy unlesss I know for sure. Really neither woman looked huge or anything it was more a combination of how they carried their weight and our conversations that made me think they were pregnant.  Ugh

When I lived in California I worked in aerospace.  My position was human resources.  We were having guests and I was setting up lunch.  I suggested Black Anus.  I was horrified.   Luckily I got some laughs and they all decided they wanted to have Black Angus for lunch instead.

Scarlett11:  I think I can top that. I have twice asked, “Do you have children” of old friends who replied that they were having trouble TTC. I was so horrified at myself, especially when I did it the second time. I *knew* it was a terrible thing to ask and still I managed to.

I was on a train once, long journey so I was chatting to the lady next to me. We were talking about relationships and she said to me “My straight husband decided he liked ass and ran off with a man” so I laughed, quite heartily. I turns out she wasn’t joking, nor did she find it funny. It was allocated seating and I had to continue to sit there the whole trip, hoping for a hole to swallow me up.
