I’m not immune to foot in mouth disease, but I certainly TRY not to be crazy insensitive. Or at least to remove my socks and shoes before inserting my foot in my mouth….
But sometimes it’s hard to know what to say. I get that. So here’s a good rule of thumb for you to follow:
In all seriousness, though, I’ve gotten every single one of these. One person I’d never even met before asked– in front of my kids— if fostering and adopting had been bad for my marriage (It hasn’t, it’s strengthened it tenfold. But, still… rude.)
So, if you’re unsure if you should ask- have no fear! Just stop and think, “Would I ask it about a boob job?”. :o)
