I REALLY need to think before I speak. Here’s why:
Last week, I was working at our school district office doing paperwork, etc. I should explain that during the school year I do speech therapy at a middle school, but for part of the summer, I lend an extra hand in the office with whatever they might need help with. I needed some assistance on a special project I was working on and was directed to go speak to someone in another part of the office. I went up to this person and introduced myself by saying:
“Hi, I’m Rena and I’m in Special Ed.”
The sad thing is I didn’t even realize it until I got home and it hit me what I had done. Thankfully I don’t think the girl helping me even noticed my error. Yikes.
Color me ridiculous.
