First of all I would like a standing ovation for not reverting back to my Brooklyn born ways, throwing on my Tims and stomping this ^*&%$@ out! The only thing that restrained me is that I think she's more stupid then offensive.
A coworker of mine looked at my ring and said oh are you engaged, I said I was. The following convo went like this:
Her: Well congratulations, your one of the lucky ones"
Me: I do consider myself fortunate to have him in my life.
Her: Because I know I saw a news show that said due to the shortage of black men, black women don't get married.
Me: (side eye) is that so?
Her: Yeah cause most of them are in jail or gay
Me: (EXTREME side eye) Well my FH has never even been arrested and the last time I checked none of my underwear or makeup were missing so I think I'm good.
Her: Oh no I didnt meant YOUR fiance, I just meant alot of black women probably want to be in your shoes right now
Me: I wouldnt know, all the black women I know are married or engaged..
