DO YOU KNOW WHO I AM?

At an evening social for army officers and their wives, the commanding general of the base had been given a special award and proceeded to drone on in a long speech of thanks. A lieutenant 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, and said, "Lieutenant, do you know who I am?"

"No, ma'am."

"I am the wife of the man you just called 'a stupid old windbag.' "

"I see," said the young lieutenant, "and do you know who I am?"

"No, I don't," said the general's wife.

"Good," said the lieutenant as he disappeared into the crowd.
