Easy Mistake to Make

A colleague who was at the meeting with the Dean yesterday stops me in the hallway.

“That stupid, motherfucking piece of shit bastard!” he exclaims.

“I’m with you, my friend,” I say. “It’s unconscionable what he’s doing.”

“The dictatorial, murderous, blood-soaked, Hitlerian piece of trash!” the colleague continues.

“OK,” I’m thinking. “That’s going a bit too far. No need to exaggerate the Dean’s faults.”

“Declaring martial law in Ukraine! What a monster!” the colleague continues, and I finally realize he’s talking about Putin.
