The best faux pas

Ever wish you could rewind the clock 10 seconds and re-phrase something? Yes? Well that makes you human. Here are some instances the listeners of the Early Breakfast have shared about their slips of the tongue, or faux-pas.

One word of advice: always, always pause before asking the hairdressers for a wash, cut and a blow-dry.

 

  • “I worked for the local authority and put an ad in the paper notifying of a closure to a pubic road!”

 

  • “I said orgasm instead of organism… and I’m a teacher!”

 

  • “I met a guy called Willy and I tried to say Hi Willy, how are you but it came out as Hi, how’s your Willy?”

 

  • “My sister once walked up to a grieving husband at a funeral and instead of saying commiserations, he said congratulations”

 

  • “I know a teacher who brought in a parent and told him that his son had to stop playing with his Playboy. It was the time of play-stations and Gameboys!”

 

  • “I asked in the cinema for a large cockporn instead of popcorn. So embarrassing!” - Pat Rochford.

 

  • “One of my friends at the end of a job interview asked the interviewer if he had HIV, meaning to ask about VHI. She got the job!”

 

  • “Hey Paula. I used to be a team lead in IT support group. One evening I sent email saying 'early morning shifts' were critical and staff had to be on time for start of their shift. I left the F out of shifts.” - Gareth

 

  • “Paula - sitting down to a very strained lunch with some of the top execs in my company and one of the women starts to talk about the new hairdresser opened next door, great prices and very handy for the office. Eager to contribute, I enthusiastically agreed, stating that they do a super blowjob for €25. I meant blow dry. The silence will live with me forever...!” - Aisling

 

  • “At a wedding at greeting line I accidentally stood on the bride's toe and wished her happy birthday!”

 

  • “I was in Paris years ago and was ordering food l. I asked for a cheese punani instead of a panini. Morto, but thankfully the language barrier meant the cafe worker hadn't a clue. Unfortunately my sister heard it all!”

 

  • “When I was a child my mother sent me to the hair dressers to book her an appointment for a wash cut and blow dry, needless to say I asked for a wash cut and blow*** to a whole salon full of women!”
