Funny Story

One of the funniest things that happen to me in prison has made me laugh for years after! I am a kitchen worker so I am one of the last inmates to leave food service. While I was walking back to my housing unit one of the correctional officers was standing outside and I heard him ask me, “Who is working over there in food service tonight?” And me being moody, sweaty and hot from the heat, I was only thinking about going back to get a shower, I responded rather agitated, “Coxs.” He looks at me and busts out laughing. I am standing there thinking what the heck is wrong with this C/O. He then says, “I asked you what was for dinner tonight, not who was working!” :O) I was so embarrassed and shocked by the slip but ended up having a great laugh afterwards.
