Foot in mouth By Wally Gale

In the many years I worked selling boats, here is my most embarrassing moment.

I was walking through the boat yard and came across a young couple who seemed interested in buying a new boat. Accordingly, I was happy to show them around.

Everything was running smoothly until I said... just a little too much.

You see, the woman decided to take a closer inspection of the last boat they were interested in by climbing inside. And as she was dismounting, I said to her, "Oh, you'd better be careful coming down the ladder being pregnant and all."

There was a pause and then she stated these dreaded words: "I'm not pregnant."

Do you think I got that sale?
