The scene: I am with my girlfriend visiting her family. I am nervous, so I make a joke. It’s St. Patrick’s Day, so I joke about Irish drunks.
What I forgot: My girlfriend’s family has an Irish background.
The repercussions: They reminded me of that. It was awkward. D’oh.
But you know what? I don’t think they’re really Irish, because I know that Irish people have a great sense of humour.
Happy Saint Patties Day everyone!
