Misheard

By not what she said - 01/06/2020 20:00

Today, I was on a Zoom call. My sister offered to go get lunch and I told her, "Don’t forget the baguettes." One overly sensitive coworker swears I used a derogatory slur that sounds the same. I didn’t. However, I’m still going to be investigated by my boss. FML

Sounds more like "bigot" than anything else.

If it's the word I think it is, they still sound different enough

Baguette lives matter!

Which race are they discriminating against with the word you're thinking of that sounds similar but not similar enough? I'm trying to think of one, but I can't...at least if I know the race, I'll be able to look up the word, haha.

It's not against a race, it's against gay people

oh, I get it now! thanks! can't find the comment as the FML app is iffy, but I got the notification in my phone at least, haha.

haha, no problem. the app has been seriously lacking recently

I still don't get it!

It’s the derogatory term for being gay...

If those sound remotely similar, you're pronouncing one of them very wrongly.

Ahhh, I've been checking back here all day for some kind soul to fill me in. Once you did, I realised that the FML didn't mention race, I just inserted that in my head.

Baguette can and has been used as a slur.

Just tell you're boss you're British and start smoking in front of him and you'll be in the clear.
