I had to read this like, three times just to get it. But I don't see how it's at all an FML.
114- Unless you're calling a mentally handicapped person a retard (which isn't funny and I'd never do that), it's not offensive. The word "retard" means "not functioning properly." No reason to be politically correct about it, there's nothing offensive about it. You're not making fun of mentally handicapped people, just basically saying someone is an idiot.
How can you be sure that they weren't talking about you? I also really don't get why people just openly talk about others like the referred to person is deaf. I guess I might've been guilty of that, but that's still a retarded thing to do.
