Hand clothes

Do you ever have one of those days where you just can’t remember a word? I do. It can be super embarrassing or totally ruin a joke. Sometimes it can be funny…after the fact.

Apparently that’s really close to the German word for gloves, which I’ve heard translates to “hand shoes.” At least this person was kind of right?

One time I forgot the word for “review” and asked a coworker when our boss will let us know how we’re doing. He didn’t think it was funny. Apparently feedback wasn’t something you ask for in that office.

Another time I couldn’t remember the word for “beanie” and asked a store clerk where I could find things to put on my head. The person immediately suggested “hats” and I said that wasn’t right, so he just stared at me like I was crazy.

I’m so good at life sometimes.

    I forgot the word “airlines” and called them “air flights companies” :). These things happen to all of us…
