I got home from church yesterday and before long my son called. He was "fuming." He told me that he and Miss K were in church yesterday and afterwards they were standing talking to a friend of my son's. Another guy, who is quite a bit older than me came up and began talking about something happening in Florida or somewhere. He used the "N" word. Yes, you read right, the real for sure "n" word and said that it was a "n" problem they were having wherever it was . Then he turned to my son and asked him what the "n" population was in the correctional facility where he worked.
My son said, and I quote, "First of all, we don't use the "n" word here, or anywhere else, and especially not in front of my 4 year old daughter. Secondly, it's really none of your business, and if I used that word on my job, I would lose my job."
He was upset that this person, who is a neighbor of theirs would talk that way in this day and age of political correctness. He was also hoping that Miss K, who picks up on about everything right now didn't say the word.
After listening to my son, I am appalled that an educated, adult would stoop so low. I am inclined to corner this guy at church next Sunday and talk to him about it. After all we do have some people of other ethnic backgrounds at our church. I would hate for them to hear this guy spouting his "trash mouth." Then again, is it really my place to say anything? Maybe my son said enough yesterday.
