Slightly embarrassing yet totally humiliating moment

When your speaking to your future father-in-law in English to avoid language confusion and you get tongue tied when wishing him good luck with a renovation project on his way out, and accidentally say ‘Good luck on your dick digging!’. There is no coming back from that. He left without a word & I almost cried.

Open mouth, insert foot.

      Could not find a rock to hide under fast enough. I’m feigning something if it comes up again, that’s for sure!

  2. Now I can’t stop laughing out loud! Jeez Louise. A psychologist (like me) might call that a Freudian slip. But I highly doubt that. It simply shows how wonderfully human you are! 🙂 🙂

    Can you even pretend that it was lost in translation? Is there even a remotely respectable Finnish translation for that?? 🤣
