Just curious, What are some things you have said that, right after you said them, you really wished you hadn't?

When I was at a job where I could be very easily replaced, my boss asked me if I liked my job. I replied "Not at all" :bang:

Walking across the parking lot on a Friday afternoon, I spied one of our salesmen carrying a cardboard box. Trying to be funny, I said, "what's with the box-- they finaly wise up and tell you you're fired, go clean out your desk?" And he loooked up at me with sad eyes and said, "yes...".

I'm always using Ma'am and Sir ...... just politeness and manners.

I've called a lady Sir on 2 separate occasions. Just not paying attention.

My boyfriend was making fun of my rather sizable nose, and my reply was, "At least I'm not walking around everywhere with a gigantic, disgusting gut hanging over my belt."

As soon as I said it, I felt horrible. In my defense, it was 2 am, and I was exhausted and cranky. Plus, that was the SECOND TIME THAT DAY that he brought up the size of my nose and compared me with a toucan. But still, it was a really mean thing to say, and predictably, it didn't go over so well. :help:

My when my last girlfriend and I had been together for 6 months, her name was Chelsea, I thought it was time to throw out the "L" word. So I said "I have something to tell you."
"Yeah?", she replies.
"I love you courtney!"
And Courtney was the name of my girl before her, and she knew that....Needless to say, it wasn't much longer after that, that I was out on the prowl for a new girlfriend. :bang:

Years ago when I bagged groceries at Kroger, there was this goofy van painted up with all sorts of Cleveland Browns stuff that a customer drove to the store all the time. After at least a year or so one day I saw one of my fellow baggers driving it, so (Browns hater that I am) I had to give him some crap about it. I said "Man, did you actually buy that ugly Browns van? What are you doing with that?" His response, "Yeah, I'm living in it right now." I felt pretty bad after that one, but he was surprisingly upbeat about it, didn't offend him or anything. He always was a little off-center.

I had one of those recently. And I knew she was pregnant. I just didn't know she'd given birth 3 months prior to my asking.

I was having an instant messenger conversation in two windows with two co-workers recently. I was answering moronic questions for one and complaining about the moronic questions to the other. I accidentally typed something like, "My job is pretty easy, all I have to do is answer stupid (another term for donkey) questions all day." I had no idea I'd done it until the reply popped up-- "Um, are my questions bothering you?"

Guilty of that also.

Getting haircut from young lady WAY pregnant. No chance of screwing this up. I say "Is this your first?"

There's a pause.....

I blurt out "Should be easy question!!"

She says "Well, my first is in Heaven..."

Longest haircut I've ever had.....

I work for a big organization.

Possibly the most important career lesson I've learned is to know (1) who used to sleep together, (2) who is currently sleeping together, and (3) who wants to sleep together.

(Sleep, of course, being a euphemism for other types of adult activity.)

I've had a couple of situations where I've said something to the effect of "she's an odd bird", only to find out that someone pretty senior in the organization was, uh, indulging himself.

I was in a group of friends once where one girl, we thought, was obviously a lesbian. After some drinks I asked if it was as hard to ask girls out for her as it was for guys.

She wasn't gay.

A few years ago I worked in an office with two lesbian partners and I was about the last one to find out about them. I found out by blurting out a smart remark about gays in the lunchroom when one of them was sitting in there eating. Things instantly resembled an E.F. Hutton commercial with everyone looking at me and then at her to see what the reaction would be. Another detail. She was my supervisor.

Great stuff. Sometimes its just best to keep your mouth shut.

My friends sister was pregnant, but then I saw her at a party carrying a drink. I was like, HEY you're not allowed to drink. She looked at me and asked Why not? I immediately replied I dunno and walked off fast. Made myself apologize later when I found out she had a miscarriage. Now my wife goes through that, and I feel even worse about saying it.

If something tragic happened to me, I think my sense of humor would let me just laugh it off to the fact that they messed up and said a bonehead thing. As long as they seemed to feel bad, then I think it'd actually give me a good laugh or two.

"Yo Momma" jokes shouldn't be used with people you don't know well...

Got in a fight in highschool with a kid whose mother had passed away, but he had a step-mom so I assumed... wrong.

given my age, most of what i think here are (graphically) sexual in nature, especially in High School...that said, part of it would be the first year i spent with Lady Raven.

the other thing would, continuing to go to public school my senior year, and continuing my dialougle with Royals and Tiger scouts before my wrist surgery and my being screwed by Urbana.

One evening, the spousal unit asked me where I'd be if I hadn't married her (and doing so in a very fishing for the answer "I'd be no where without you baby" answer).

Before that filter between mouth and brain engaged, I said I'd be living a condo in Mt Adams, driving a Porsche, and dating a Bengals cheerleader.

Needless to say, that was the wrong answer. The marital bed was very cold for quite a while after that.

I think you would have been safe if you just left out the cheerleader. :)

I'd have to say accidentally dropping the F-bomb in front of my mom. My mom was pissed. I had to eat soap, and do a bunch of chores in the following weeks.

Ouch! I have a friend who complained about a woman who was obviously unqualified for her job to his boss (who was also her boss) only to get a call from our program manger (we were both on-site contractors) in the middle of the night asking him to report to Headquarters. He never worked on that contract again and the boss married the woman a year later. :eek: Fortunately, the contract he was transferred to was a much better place to work anyway.

Roy, my wife asked me the 'Where would you be without me...' question and I immediately answered, 'Obviously, still searching for you.' and she almost cried. Of course, the only way to pull it off is to actually feel that way. just lucky I guess. :thumbup:
