Unpolished Stupidity

I have a Polish friend, say his last name is Kaczynski. He introduced me to his wife and her name was Polish too. In less than a nano-second I forgot her name.

I wanted to invite them to dinner, and couldn't remember her name and didn't feel like addressing her as "the wife" because that would be a little rude. So I looked his facebook friends and found it: Gizela Kaczynski.

I sent him a text message, "Hi Roman I would like to take you and Gizela to dinner this Friday".

He replied, "Thank you, but why do you want me to bring my mother from Poland to the dinner?"

I'm pretending not to have received the message just trying to come up with an explanation.

Morale of the story: if there's a funny story involving Polish people, the stupid people in the story might not be the Polish.

Sorry don't mean to laugh at your predicament but this is hilarious. The only you can do is "Tell him you don't have a date for dinner" LOL

I had a Polish friend called Roman too :P he wasn't married though, haha.
Tell the guy the truth man, no way out of it :).
