Made a few
I called my ex by her sister's name in bed once. Not very social, but still dodgy.

Upon having dinner with her parents for the first time her father informed me that he made tanks, more specifically parts for tanks. My initial reaction was "I thought we were trying to stop wars?". Glares all round, never got invited round again. I think that girl jsut messed my mind up.

In the christmas period of 2002 I turned up around one minute late to work due to heavy traffic and needless to say some temp or other had had my desk. I told the manageress (A temporary manageress who had come down from Stockport) and she had a moan and said "go and have your first break now and be back here for 17:55". I did, she'd kept me waiting though so I'd spent my ten minute first break waiting for her and I had about three minutes to get outside, have a smoke and return. I made it. The next break I got co-incided with that of two of my friends. I got to the smoking area and because of the nature of it and where they were I didn't properly enter it and just looked at them. I proceeded in telling them the what happened to me earlier describing the manageress as "the short one from Stockport that's pretty foxy" and went on to describe feeligns of hate and annoyance in great detail, adding "obviously, I didn't say this to her". To my horror her voice rung out from behind me saying "Or when she's standing behind you?". I thought I was in for the sack, my two friends pissed themselves laughing, and the manageress moaned a bit. Stupidly she got my time of arrival wrong and I corrected her, putting her on the back foot and she left looking stupider than me.
