Phrase of the Day 106: 'drop a clanger'

"to drop a clanger"

definition: to make an embarrassing mistake

(blbost, faux pas)

example: "When I asked a large lady on the tube if she would like my seat since she was so obviously pregnant, she took the seat then told me she was fat, not pregnant! I really dropped a clanger."
