Big Faux Pas Thread


#1

Once was talking to a colleague at my last job. She starts saying something like ‘Oh, I had to go and collect Morrissey from a friend’s house last night which was why I missed the meeting’ or some shit, and I go ‘Oh, is Morrissey a cat or a dog?’, and she goes ‘no, thats my son’.

:upside_down_face::rofl::grimacing:

I thought you meant miserable bigot Morrissey then.


#3

#4

superb.


#5

Once accidentally printed out a really horrible and pervy email for a well known radio presenter to read live on air when I was doing an internship at a radio station.


#6

When talking to my vegan colleague I referred to our non-vegan colleagues as “normal people”


#7


#8

Could’ve been worse. Could’ve been “muggles”.


#9

That’s kind of their fault for calling their kid morrissey


#10

is the kid actually called Morrissey or was she joking because her son is a miserable bastard?


#11

i thought this too, but then thought maybe they called him Morris at home or something.


#12

nah, definitely morrissey. came up a lot afterwards.


#13

that’s weird must have been some kind of subconscious association and urge you had to do that


#14

that’s gross


#15

also like if you name your child after a specific famous person, you’re going to give them an inferiority complex right? There’s very little chance they will achieve the same “success” or social status as that person


#16

Dunno man. Would consider calling my son say, Elvis over Morrissey. Depends on the celeb


#17

Isn’t Elvis a fairly normal name in some countries though?


#18

maybe his full name is Morris E. Child


#19

I think it’s because my brain hates me.


#20

I was served by Elvis when shopping at Sainsburys in Muswell Hill recently.
