Hello, my name is Elmwood, and I suffer from Foot-in-Mouth Disease.
Basically, I seem to stick my foot in my mouth more so than what I think might be the norm. It’s completely unintentional, but for some reason, whenever I make a comment that might otherwise seem innocent, but a bit “edgy,” it almost always ends up offending someone.
Hypothetical example – I may be on a date, and I might find myself tripping over my words. After catching myself, I’ll make a self-degrading comment like “Looks like I’ve been riding the short bus today.” Lo and behold, her brother or sister will inevitably be mentally challenged.
Does anyone else suffer from this affliction?
