With my fucking mouth? They know all the little words, but we follow the principle of, there are no bad words; just inappropriate audiences.

I just went back through the whole "Funny/Embarrassing Things They Say" thread, thinking I had already posted this little gem, but apparently I hadn't:

Minifob: [gets two people confused with each other]
Me: No no, that was the boyfriend before this one. She's had more than one boyfriend.
Minifob: [in all earnestness, proud to have made the connection and with no negative connotations] Oh, you mean she's a slut.

Absotively. Word play is one of my favorite things, and a HUGE reason why I love this place. You all are so clever, so witty.

Of course, I earn a living by getting it RIGHT, so I'm scrupulous and highly anal when it comes to my work. On a personal level, I don't always follow the rules when speaking and I don't usually bother to correct others on such matters (written or spoken). *

But in the end, using the right words, punctuation, and grammar are representations of one's self. If you're ok with appearing the fool, that's on you.
