Foot in mouth

Sometimes I should learn to just keep my mouth shut, which became brilliantly clear to me this afternoon when I embarrassed myself at work.

One of my coworkers came into the office with a gold chain around his neck, not something I’m used to seeing in our place of business. I jokingly asked him, “Where did you get the the MC Hammer necklace?” to which he replied, “It was my mom’s.” His mother just passed away a couple of weeks ago.

Open mouth… insert entire leg.

  1. File this under “I’m human.” It’s the sort of moment we all have…and hate. Why weren’t we all issued rewind buttons?
