Quickie - Kijiji Fail




A young gal and her boyfriend come to my place to buy maternity clothes. I answer the door and the following conversation ensues:

Me: You don't look pregnant at all! 
Her: I'm not.
Me: Oh, so you're just planning ahead?
Her: Not really, no.
Me: Oh.. Are you buying clothes for a friend?
Her: <confused look> The skirt and sweater?
Me: <click! lightbulb goes on> You probably don't want them if you aren't pregnant; they're maternity clothes!
Her: They are? Oh!

Everyone has a good laugh but holy awkward! I wish I'd captured the boyfriend's face on camera - he was shitting himself the whole time wondering if his girlfriend hadn't told him something. Priceless!

By the way I posted the items on Kijiji under Women's Maternity with 'Thyme Maternity' in the title and description, but somehow the chic missed it. Lesson learned: Don't be a silly chic - always read the ad, the whole ad, before responding!
