I have foot in mouth disease lately. I can't remember that last time I had a conversation in which I didn't say something insensitive, arrogant-sounding, or completely insufferable. Accidentally, but...
If I were in a conversation with me, I wouldn't like me.
Don't be so hard on yourself, lucky! Nobody's perfect, you know!
I'm quite good at saying the wrong thing myself, but was completely surpassed by my Mum when we went to visit her at Christmas. She hadn't seen my daughter for 18 months, as she's only home twice a year now, but said to her: "I've always felt that you inherited all my worst features"! I bet you haven't said anything quite so insensitive recently!

The fire alarm's just gone off for the third time today. It had better not go off again in the middle of the night!!!
It'll probably wait until you're in the shower, Sarah!
They have so many fire alarms at Trev's! When we visited last February, one of BerkshireSon's friends appeared outside in just a towel - he was in the shower when the alarm sounded!
