Inadvertent Insult

I inadvertently insulted my boss at 8:15 this morning. This is the conversation with my boss this about a woman patient (shoe size 11) who needs an ankle brace. My boss has several ankle braces at his house that he had used from an ankle surgery years ago.

Boss: "I am a size 9, does that equate to a woman's size 11?"
Me: "Wow, you have small feet."
Awkward silence...for about 10 seconds.
Boss: "You know that it is scientifically proven that a man's shoe size is not proportional to..." and then he just started laughing.

I can't look him in the eye now.

So funny! And yeah, you can tell your boss that Shawn wears a size 9 1/2 shoe - and I can tell ya, there is NO correlation at all. So, tell him not to fret. LOL
