I cannot help it! I seem to always put my foot in my mouth. I was joking about having time to read stuff online, I said " When I am rich I can stay at home, read and comment all day, " Then I added " HEY! I can dream!"at the end of this statement and it was taken as a personal attack! Yes to one friend who is disabled and stays at home. I don`t hurt peoples feeling on purpose, that has never been who I am. I am thinking I better just not speak, no commenting about how I wish I had more time. How about you, have you said something that people took ALL wrong?

People take things wrong all the time - it happens in here quite frequently.

Sometimes people do not have a sense of humor.

I think I did many times . . One day I said (a compliment) "You are so beautiful" to a co-worker. It did not sit well to her. According to her I lied . . because her husband never told her she's beautiful.

I was misunderstood sometimes. I planned not to speak about what my friends don't want to hear or read online.

Not yet, but if I trot out my bizarre sense of humor, you never know.

I reckon I have a weird sense of humor? Maybe.

Oh yes, I have done the foot-in-the-mouth thing many times. I think that the majority of humans have. So, it is average to say something that another may take offense to.

Yes, but mostly from people who are looking for something to be offended about.

I guess some people misinterpret things but I probably just would have laughed and said "me too"

And that was how it was meant.

Sounds like the friend has a bit of a complex regarding their disability and the fact that they stay at home because of it. I don't think most people would take that any way other than the one you meant it... wishful thinking. There's one person I work with who constantly takes the things I say wrong and out of context. I just don't talk to him about anything that's not related to work... it's too much of a headache to deal with the constant explanations.

I think I just need to pick who I know I can joke with and who I know I cant and stick to that too.
