So it happens, right? You hear someone talking, who is less socially savvy than average and without knowing it, they say something that could have a second, more bawdy or impure meaning and you feel bad for this person because they don’t know what they’ve done, and they might be embarrassed if they did.

I think it more reasonable that that person should feel pity for you, because you have (unintentionally or intentionally) been exposed to subject matter that has put this second meaning into your head. And now you have to think about it when it’s referred to.

When I die, God isn’t going to give me bonus points for a lack of naivety.
