This is a question Cringe!

Chickenlady winces, "I told a Hugh Grant/Divine Brown joke to my dad, pretending that Ms Brown was chewing gum so she'd be more American. Instead I just appeared to be still giving the blow-job. Even as I'm writing this I'm cringing inside."

Tell us your cringeworthy stories of embarrassment. Go on, you're amongst friends here...

My ex-mother-in-law used to work for a large transatlantic accountancy firm as the CEO's PA. She used to have to travel to the states on a regular basis and do a lot of meeting and greeting other heads of global corporations.

On one such occasion as she was being introduced to a very important client who had turned up unannounced, she suddenly became caught in two minds as how to greet said digitary who was notoriously bad tempered.

In the moment she couldn't decide if she should say "What an unexpected pleasure!" or "What a pleasant surprise!"

What she actually said was "What an unpleasant surprise!"

Cue general office corpsing and one very red face (his apparently)!!

Undiplomatic perhaps
but accurate from the sounds of it.
