I have a doozie, may be the worst thing anybody has ever said to anybody, really:
About 8 years ago I worked with this guy (we both still work for the same company) and I was at his desk for some reason. We were both in our mid
20’s (this is important). Anyways, he had a picture on his desk of what appeared to me as a middle + aged woman, easily old enough to be somebody
of our age’s mom.
I say “Is that you mother?”
He says “…huh…..”
Then he said “That’s my wife”
It wasn’t a joke.
I was stunned, I didn’t know what to say, it was clearly the most awkward thing that could possibly have happened. I want to be clear about
something: This woman was not old at all, but she was so unpleasant looking she appeared to be of a much older age.
I basically changed the subject FAST and got the heck out of there. I don’t know that I ever spoke to him in the same way again; it’s just a
small “hi” in the hallway now.
Man that was embarrassing.
