Social Gaff

Just commented to one of my less known neighbours as he carried a baby around his front yard, “I didn’t know you had grandchildren?” Nearby his wife was putting a three year old boy into a booster seat in their car. “That would be fine,” he replied, “except these aren’t our grandchildren…they’re our children!” Ooops, but in my defence he does have grey hair and I’ve never seen the kids around before. I beat a hasty and embarrassed retreat.
