    Default to put one's foot in it

    Hi there,
    could you tell me if this sentence sounds right?

    There are situations in which you'd better keep your mouth shut instead of putting your foot in it!

    Thank you,
    Donato

    Default Re: to put one's foot in it

    It's a variant of the old gag "He rarely opens his mouth without putting his foot in it.'
