Today, I got into a slight spot of shit with my new boss over his speech. Apparently he was not actually impersonating Sylvester the Cat, and he just has a speech impediment. When I jokingly said "sufferin' succotash" to him, he wasn't pleased at all. FML

I dont agree. I think that it was okay for OP to joke around with her boss.

But I think OP would be in the wrong if she didnt explain herself and apologize, as it is quide rude to make fun of the way someone speaks.

The thing is, though, that OP wasn't making fun of a speech impediment, she thought her boss was imitating a cartoon and joking with her. She doesn't deserve it because the thought that her boss might have a speech impediment didn't cross her mind.

Why would he be impersonating Sylvester? FYL OP, it was an honest mistake, but it's better to assume they have an speech impediment than to not; you can laugh about one, but be extremely embarrassed about the other.

People with speach impediments are often extremely self conscience of how they sound. .. It is understandable that he got offended when OP pointed it out

yes people offend easily. especially if you make fun of their disability.

what if I said "HAHA are you two wearing sunglasses because you're blind??? you'd *HAVE* to be. no seeing person would be with either of you hahaha"
