Conversational Balls-Up

| Working | February 27, 2014

(The store is quiet for an afternoon. We are looking over the department lottery, where I notice something strange on the sheet.)

Me: “[Coworker], why is your name down twice?”

Coworker: “Well, my husband wants to take part as well, but I’m bringing the money in for it anyway, so it’s easier if I just put mine down.”

Me: “I guess that makes sense…”

Coworker: *a little excitedly* “Yep, so I’ve got two balls!”

(Almost immediately, she realised what she said loud enough that a few customers and coworkers turned round. She hid in the corner and refused to come out for a few minutes while I was bent over in laughter!)
