Someone's returned from holiday, you see them and say, "Oh, you're back then?"

A colleague said something like that to my boss once, he didn't half get an earbashing!

To an expectant couple. "What are you hoping for? A boy or girl or what?"

What? Like a kitten or wee puppy?

Did you fall?

No. I've got a bar of toffee in my back pocket and I'm trying to break it into pieces.

One of the girls in my team was chatting with me and something came up and I said "I haven't laughed so much since Grandma died".
There was a pause and she said "my Gran died at the weekend".

We became good friends and still laugh at that uncomfortable moment 30 years later.

When my mother answers the phone and realises it's me she always says ''Oh! It's yourself.''

My sisters bête noire of her partners speech:

"And I/he/she turned round and said..............."

After 30+ years she is still asking why people would have a conversation facing away from the listener :lol:
