He picked up his date for a night out, but was shocked when her father said this

Have you ever tried to express yourself, but your words came out completely wrong? The worst is when you end up saying something so humiliating without even realizing it. We’ve all been there–and it’s no fun.

A Reddit user posted this joke about a tiny miscommunication.

Imagine this.

It’s 1957 and Bobby goes to pick up his date, Peggy Sue. Peggy Sue’s father answers the door and invites him in.

He asks Bobby what they’re planning to do on the date. Bobby politely responds that they’ll probably just go to the malt shop or to a drive-in movie.

Peggy Sue’s father suggests, “Why don’t you kids go out and screw? I hear all of the kids are doing it.”

Bobby is shocked. “Excuse me, sir?”

“Oh yes, Peggy Sue really likes to screw. She’ll screw all night if we let her.”

Peggy Sue comes downstairs and announces that she’s ready to go.

About 20 minutes later, a thoroughly disheveled Peggy Sue rushes back into the house, slams the door behind her, and screams at her father, “Dad! The Twist! It’s called the Twist!

Well, he almost got the expression right!

Apparently, just one wrong word can make a heck of a difference! Guess it’s about time to keep up with current lingo to avoid future mix-ups.
