Unbelievable....

Sitting at an informal military gathering, many drinks were purchased and downed. One superior Officer, (in rank only.....because he has been in longer than me and the system hasn't flushed the turd), made the statement, "Yes, I know I am cheap...but hey, I don't apologize for being "Niggardly" (Italics and underline is indicative of his inflection on the word). Being the only Black Officer in the Officer call, and one of three in the battalion I just looked down and pondered my drink. A hush fell over the members of the table..... I chuckled. He says....

"Let me guess, Smith...you think I am prejudiced because I said, "niggardly"?

I reply.....

"No Sir, I think you are prejudiced because you assumed I didn't know what the fuckin' word meant."

He was mad.

I couldn't make this up folks.
