I know this is the forum of introverts, but can't be the only person here who suffers from this. (Not to be confused with foot-and-mouth disease.)
Years ago, I was "let go" from a job about a week after a particularly aggregious case. I was having a casual conversation with my boss that started out of his curiousity about my curiosity about his Canadian-ess. And after he said that part of the reason he started a business in the US was that the taxes were lower and if that was strange to me (with the underlying tone that everyone could relate to lower taxes), I started musing out loud that it could be construed as cheating the system when he had enjoyed its greater benefits, in the healthcare and education, for example.
It really didn't occur to me how this sounded for a good 10 minutes after his awkward silence that followed. And another day to realize that it might be especially damning considering he worked in the healthcare industry.
So anyone else often get the "crapshoot, why is my mouth working so much faster than my brain" feeling? (And can I blame this on something, like low Fe or something?)
