I have Foot IN Mouth disease...I always seem to come out with the wrong thing at the wrong time. Today, however, I had the opposite problem. I kept quiet when I should have spoken up.
I went to see the family lawyer, and while there he congratulated me on my pregnancy. I'm not pregnant! I suppose I was wearing a peasant top, which could be considered maternity wear at a stretch, but I don't think I look pregnant. I'm not skinny but... And my response to this statement? Unfortunately, I froze! I had the same comment made to me late last year and when I explained I wasn't pregnant I spent the next 10-15 minutes drowning in apologies and getting progressing redder and redder. So, today I said nothing; just nodded. And the lawyer spent the next 20 minutes mentioning it. I wanted to crawl under the chair and hide...I still do :(
Now I don't know what to do. Do I ring, explain the situation and apologise? Or do I say nothing?
Updated to change the title, since 'OOPS!' didn't quite seem to cover it :)
Updated (again) to inform you that I contacted the lawyer and explained everything and apologised. All is good...PHEW!
