At an evening social for Army Officers & their wives, the Commanding General of the base had been given a special award & proceeded to drone on in a long speech of thanks.
An Officer mumbled to the woman at his side, "Why they would award him a prize is beyond me. He's nothing but a stupid old windbag."
The woman turned to him; her jaw set & said, "Sir, do you know who I am?"
"I am the wife of the man you just called 'a stupid old windbag.'”
"I see," said the Officer, "and do you know who I am?"
"No, I don't," said the General's wife.
"Good," said the Officer as he disappeared into the crowd.
