The one that happens to me the most has to do with people's names. I just made a comment to a friend earlier about people who have first names that are last names, and it turned out her husband is a "double surname" dude. I don't know why I don't learn. For those of you who are just hitting the age where your friends have very young children, like seriously, avoid the name conversation altogether. There's literally nothing you can say to a young parent about their child's name that will end well for you. Later in life when the kids are grown and have bitched to their parents about the shitty names they were given, okay, that's your moment, you can now bring it up, but not before then. Where I live there is a thankfully dying trend of naming your child a name that is half dad's first name, half mom's first name. Some of the results are borderline child abuse. I know a person named Migniel. Seriously. Migniel. I wouldn't make that shit up. BUT THIS THREAD IS NOT ABOUT NAMES!!!!! It's about conversations you find yourself REGULARLY STARTING and then wishing you had a rewind button to make it not be happening and then wondering Why? Why do I do it??? .... and GO!
