A WOMAN was left mortified after going to dinner with her husband’s work colleagues and finding out what he told them she did for a living.
The anonymous woman took to Mumsnet to explain the blunder her husband had made.
She revealed that it was the first time she had got to meet his co-workers – and the group went out for dinner to get to know each other.
Although everyone had a good time she could sense a ‘weird vibe’ between them.
And she was left mortified when she found out the reason why.
While out for dinner, one of his co-workers brought up the fact that their child was asking about sex and was unsure how to approach it.
Her husband turned around and said: “Ask her, she’s a sex worker.”
The woman added: “Que all the awkward faces then the laughing then the blushing of Mr Stupid as I explained my ACTUAL job and why he’s an idiot and should never speak to anyone again.”
She was left shocked by his response – as she works as a sexual health advisor.
To make matters worse, her husband had been saying she was a sex worker to his colleagues for three years – hence the weird vibe she had got from the group.
She explained: “Turns out when asked what I do he’s been telling people I’m a sex worker.
“He actually thought that’s what sex worker meant. Thankfully I’ve put everyone straight and the weird tension eased. But omg what a bloody idiot.”
Luckily, everyone at the dinner table could see the funny side of her husband’s blunder, as did users who read the post.
One wrote: “Omg that is a hilarious mistake.”
“That’s amazing hahaha, I’d be fuming,” another added.
A third commented: “Oh I’m sorry OP but thank you for the giggle.
“Omg. I would have died,” wrote a fourth user.
