Sentence: If they needed a lucid answer or wanted to make a request that would be remembered, it was wise to ask the boss in the mornings. That was because the boss,Sheldon Sober, had a liquid lunch every day. His lunches also ran overtime, so while this cat was away,the mice would play. Mimi the Mimic could do a hilarious impersonation of inebriated Sheldon, which would endear her to and entertain her co-workers. One day, the pub Sheldon normally frequented ran out of beer several hours after he got there, so he headed back to his office to get a "stiffener" from the "First Aid Kit" in his desk. He arrived in time to find Mimi taking the mick out of him and the staff roaring with laughter. They meekly slunk back to their desks and nothing was said for the rest of the day. In the morning Mimi timidly reported into work, wondering if she still had a job. Sheldon apparently had forgotten her gafforgaffer and commented to her that she did a great Dean Martin impression!
Etymology: Gaffe (a socially awkward or tactless act) & For(Because; by reason that) & Gaffer(a person who exercises control over workers)
