Re: Times you've put your foot in it....
This happened TO me although it wasn't me putting the foot in my mouth.
I either had just graduated high school or I was going to be soon and I got a call from an Army Recruiter. The call pretty much went like this:
Army: Good afternoon Sir, have you given any thought to joining the Army after high school?
Army: That's too bad. Let me ask you, are you involved in sports at all?
Me: Nope. I've never liked sports.
Army: Were you active in gym or other physical activities during school?
Me: No, I didn't do any of that.
Army: Might I ask why?
Me: Because I have Cerebral Palsy.
Army: *30 second pause* Oh....have a good day sir and good luck to you in whatever path you choose *click*
So apparently they don't research who they call first :-D
