I have discovered over the years (and years) that I am prone to say things I might not have said in my younger days. I guess I just could care less what folks think. I know as a teacher that can be stupid. I have been called worse. My boss said an angry parent called him with the comment that I said her kid must have a mother taking lots of pills for headaches. I laughed when he told me and he said "she is not laughing." So after two days of trying to find a working # I finally talked to her with apologies and words of comfort. She seems fine now. My comments to the class sometimes are. " I know your moms are taking lots of tyenol to put up with this nonsense". Would that offend you?
